Blankman | 1994 | PG-13 | - 3.4.3

Damon Wayans stars as Blankman, a mysterious superhero, complete with a sidekick called The Other Guy.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - There is no nudity, but there is quite a bit of implied sex. A man is shown very visibly aroused after kissing a woman; and he is shown convulsing wildly and making a lot of noise.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Although the film is a lighthearted look at comic-book superheroes, it does include some violence, but with little blood and no real gore. Two men are shown beating up another. An elderly woman is shot to death by gangsters (we only see a gangster firing a gun). A bank is blown up with a man inside. There are a couple of fight scenes between the good guys and the bad guys accompanied, by comic POWs and THUDs. A man is shot in the shoulder and some blood is visible.

LANGUAGE 3 - A handful of scatological references, and a few milder profanities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Vigilantism.

MESSAGE - Every person has the potential to change things for the better; you don't need super-human strength to make a difference.

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.
