Boiling Point | 1993 | R | - 2.5.6

Police thriller with Wesley Snipes as a Federal cop who has seven days to catch criminal Dennis Hopper. Most of the film is devoted to following Snipes as he collects and follows leads.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some kissing, and a couple of couples are shown in bed, presumably before or after sex. No nudity, just a little cleavage.

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.
