Article 99 | 1992 | R | - 1.6.5

Ray Liotta leads in this "Catch 22" wannabe, set in a VA hospital known more for its red tape than for its health care, where doctors have to adopt an underground-style bedside manner.

SEX/NUDITY 0 - There's no notable nudity.

the review continues below...

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - There's some brief but graphic footage of open heart surgery, and one scene where a maniac goes on a shooting spree; no death, or even blood, results from it. A corpse in the early stages of decay is found hiding in a hospital bed.

the review continues below...

LANGUAGE 6 - A healthy dosage of foul language and the F-word are employed throughout.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Sex is treated rather casually, and illness, injury and other spoils of war are illustrated by the patients in the hospital.
MESSAGE - The film is a statement about the importance of human dignity.
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.
