A Bronx Tale | 1993 | R | - 0.8.9

Robert De Niro's directorial debut, about a teenager's struggle between the hard but honest life of his father and the seductive life of power and money represented by the local gangster.

SEX/NUDITY 0 - None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Two men are shot in the head, and a lot of blood is shown. There's a bar fight where motorcycle bikers are beaten by gangsters with baseball bats and bottles. There are kids selling guns on the street. A group of black kids enter a white neighborhood and are beaten badly with sticks; there is a lot of blood. While travelling to the black neighborhood with gasoline-filled bottles, a car explodes and the white kids all burn to death: there are some very gruesome close-ups of burned flesh and limbs.

LANGUAGE 9 - Every possible derivation of the F-word is used throughout the movie. A smattering of scatological terms, and racial references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Race relations, gambling, the corrupting influence of easy money and power.
MESSAGE - The saddest thing is wasted talent; the best thing is to give and get love unconditionally. The choices that you make will shape your life forever.
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.
