Snake Eyes | 1998 | R | - 3.7.6

Nicolas Cage and Gary Sinise investigate a political assassination which took place during a boxing bout.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some kissing scenes and sexual innuendo. Several scantily clad women are seen, a woman is shown in a bra, and a woman is seen in a bra and panties as a man buries his face in her clothed crotch. A man squeezes a woman's clothed buttocks. A man unzips his pants in preparation for oral sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - An assassination takes place; we see blood spurting from the gunshot wound to the throat and the blood splatters a couple of bystanders (this scene is shown a few times throughout the film). Two people are shot and killed; one has bloody hands and torso and lies in a puddle of blood. A man is shot and killed leaving a bloody face. A woman is shot in the arm and a woman is seen twice with a bloody arm and bandage. A man spits blood on another's chest and a man shoots himself in the chest leaving a small, bloody wound. A man has very bloody hands. Bloody gloves, a bloody note and bloody money are seen a few times. A few boxing scenes, and a few fight scenes: a man kicks and punches another man, and a man beats up another man resulting in a bloody mouth, a bloody face, and a bloody, swollen eye. Several scuffles, falls, chases and rioting.

LANGUAGE 6 - One F-word, many scatological references and mild obscenities, some anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Law enforcement, friendship, political assassinations, conspiracies.

MESSAGE - Don't believe everything you see.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
