VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A woman finds her husband and child dead with pools of blood around their dead bodies (this scene is shown twice). A military takeover results in mob scenes with yelling and running. There are scenes of rioting and explosions. Several people are shot and killed while trying to run away and a hospital is shown full of people with bloody wounds. Two men are shown being shot. A hanging corpse is shown. A woman is threatened by a soldier and he attempts to rape her. A woman cuts a bullet out of her friend's shoulder and we watch this in bloody close-up.

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.
