VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A few gory scenes: a man gets whacked in the head with a flying hammer and dies, a man gets run over by a truck, a man gets his windpipe whacked, a man gets eviscerated by a helicopter propeller and a man gets slammed in the torso by a flying bomb. A few people are shot and killed (there's a little blood and bodies jerking from the bullets) and a there are a couple of shoot-outs. Many fistfights without blood; however, one extended fistfight shows two men with bloody faces. There is a reckless car chase and many explosions (people often jump and fall due to the explosions).

LANGUAGE 6 - About 10 F-words, a few anatomical references, 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.
