Assassins | 1995 | R | - 1.6.7

Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas star as two feuding hitmen, with Julianne Moore caught in the middle of the power struggle.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A kiss and a couple of hugs; a man is in a bathtub exposing his bare chest.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man is shot from the back (we hear but don't see). A man is shot many times in the chest (we see the bullets enter and blood), and pandemonium breaks out with screaming, yelling and shooting. A man dislocates his thumb to escape from handcuffs and breaks a police officer's neck. Police cars collide killing the officers (after two officers are shot through the windshield), a few scenes of reckless driving with cars chasing each other and a couple explosions. A man falls out of a window and later we see deep bloody wounds on his body. A man shoots a roomful of people and there is some blood in the room afterward; we see some bloody wounds. A woman is threatened with a gun.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 35 F-words, some scatological references, and many 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.
