Absolute Power | 1997 | R | - 5.7.5

Clint Eastwood is a thief who witnesses a crime and a White House cover-up. Also with Gene Hackman, Ed Harris, Scott Glenn and Judy Davis. Directed by Clint Eastwood. [2:01]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo, kissing. An extended sex scene with kissing, implied oral sex: the man is standing and pushes the woman down to her knees. The camera shows his pleased face. It later appears he's performing oral sex on her. The same pair engage in rough sex (slaps and they both seem to enjoy it) before the sex turns too rough. During this scene there's no nudity, just shoulders, etc.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - An extended violent rape scene with slaps, hits in the crotch, punches (one resulting in a very bloody nose), strangling, scuffling. A woman stabs a man in the arm and there is some blood. A woman is shot and there's a lot of blood splattered on a man's face, on the floor and on her body and face. We see her bloody body and floor a few more times. A man is killed by having a huge needle jabbed in his neck. Chases, threatening with guns, snipers, a woman is pushed off a cliff in a car. A woman has a badly bruised face.

LANGUAGE 5 - Three F-words, some scatological references, a few anatomical references, some mild obscenities.

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.
