Also with Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons. Directed by Zack Snyder. A few lines of dialogue are spoken in Russian with English subtitles. [2:01]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A woman's costume is low-cut and short and reveals cleavage, bare shoulders and back and legs to the hips and we occasionally see a portion of her bare buttocks. The costumes of women warriors reveal cleavage, bare abdomens, bare shoulders and legs and they include breast plates. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage in a few scenes. A man removes his sweater and we see his bare chest, abdomen and back with multiple tattoos. A woman wears tight-fitting pants and a low cut top that reveal cleavage and the outline of her buttocks and hips (the camera lingers a few times). A man is shown shirtless and we see his bare chest, abdomen to the hip and back.
 A man and a woman kiss a few times and she caresses his bare chest. A man and a woman hug.
 A man tells a woman, "You are gorgeous," and makes a sound (he is sitting on something that makes people tell the truth but he is unaware). A young man is described as an "attractive Jewish boy." A man says to a woman, "It looks like you have a date."

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Many superheroes fight a giant demon creature: we see them being thrown around, they fight with swords and one is splattered with green goo after destroying a creature, a bridge collapses under four superheroes and a structure nearly crushes one, and the giant demon creature pulls one of the heroes apart (we see his leg pulled off but we see him put back together later). A large box hums and glows and vibrates on a pedestal as many women warriors aim bows and arrows at it; there is a blast of energy and a giant demon creature with an axe crashes to the ground surrounded by many flying creatures (like moth men) and they fight the women warriors (we see many being slashed and thrown, presumably killed, with no blood shown). A giant demon creature chases women warriors on horseback slashing them with his giant ax and several are thrown off their horses and presumably killed while one is pinned under her horse (she dies). A giant demon creature fights sea people under water and they are thrown around, slammed into walls and the demon gets away with a box (we see one person with a bloody gash on her forehead). Two superheroes are thrown on their backs by a huge explosion (we see them moving slowly and hear them complaining of pain later).
 Armed men enter a building and shoot several security guards (we do not see blood) as people scatter and children scream; one man holds a gun at a crowd of people huddled on the floor and opens fire (the bullets are deflected by a super hero), and a super hero throws a briefcase bomb through the ceiling on the building and into the sky where it explodes.
 There are several war scenes with many people and creatures fighting with slashing swords, bows and arrows and stabbing (no blood is shown but we see bodies falling dead). Several people are gathered and threatened by a demon creature; we hear a woman cry and then see a body crumple to the floor (we see no wounds but assume she is dead), and a man is held by the throat in the air and others are thrown around; two superheroes fight the demon and the structure crumbles around them nearly crushing one of the heroes, a man is taken away by winged demons and a woman kills the demons. A winged creature with sharp teeth (it looks like a moth) swoops toward a man, grabs him and they fly away, crash onto a rooftop and when the creature is trapped in a net, it glows and explodes. A man threatens another man and slams him against a wall. We see movement behind a curtain in a lab and we hear animal noises; the scene ends and we do not see what or who it is. Many flying demon creatures swarm a giant demon creature and appear to be chewing on him as they are taking up into the sky through a portal.
 A flying vessel breaks through a shield around a village and crashes; a vehicle speeds out and through the area while being chased by flying demons as crystal-like formations break through the ground all around them; a house is destroyed as a formation breaks through it and the family inside runs, and a structure collapses. Superheroes fight each other: one shoots at another who returns with laser blasts, two superheroes head-butt each other, and one superhero holds another by the face and squeezes while asking if he bleeds. A man with a full bag climbs out a window and onto a roof where he is confronted by a superhero; the man shoots at the superhero, they fight and he is held over the roof ledge. Two men on a street are shoved by police and one kicks bins of fruit in front of a market before being held on the hood of a car by an officer. A man throws a bladed weapon at a young man who dodges it and catches it unharmed.
 A man on a boat in a very rough sea is tossed around and his ship sinks; a man pulls the other man to safety and carries him into a pub where he slams him onto a table. A small house with a family inside is swarmed by flying demon creatures and a woman and her two children hide under a table.
 A young man is shown strapped onto a lab table and he is grimacing in pain. We see a young man with glowing lights where one eye would be and on his forehead along with a partial metal mask on his face, metal hands and a full metal body. Two men dig up a grave and we see a coffin with a man inside. A dead body is placed in a liquid and pushed under the surface; it bursts out of the water and into the sky landing unharmed. A man is shown with severe bruising on his back after a fight and a woman snaps his shoulder back into place (he grunts and we hear a crunch).
 We hear that a man is in jail wrongfully accused of killing his wife. A man stands on a high rock cliff looking down at a small village. A homeless man sits on a sidewalk with a sign that reads, "I tried." A man identifies his group of evil doers as "reactionary terrorists." A man talks about there being icebergs in a harbor. We see a newspaper headline that reads, "Superman is dead." A young man asks, "Does anybody know I'm alive?" A demon is described as "end of worlds" and it is said that he feeds on fear. A demon is described to have "apocalyptic power" and that he will turn the world into a hellscape. After a fight with a superhero a man says, "Something is definitely bleeding." A woman talks about a man that she loved who died. A man goads a woman about not wanting to take action and about a man that she loved who died. A young man talks about being the way he is because he was struck by lightning and another talks about having been caught in an explosion.
 A woman sharpens her sword and we see sparks spray.
 A man gives another man a hard time while waiting in line behind him and the other man draws on his face with marker unbeknownst to him. A young man talks about having to feed his "snack hole."

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
