Cutthroat Island | 1995 | PG-13 | - 4.6.3

Geena Davis and Matthew Modine brave the wild seas in this swashbuckling romance. Also with Frank Langella, Maury Chaykin, Patrick Malahide, Stan Shaw, Rex Linn, Paul Dillon, Christopher Masterson, Jimmie F. Skaggs, Harris Yulin, Carl Chase, Peter Geeves, Angus Wright, and Ken Bones. Directed by Renny Harlin. [2:03]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Some sexual innuendo and passionate kissing. A man lies on top of a woman and they kiss and caress; later the woman gets out of bed and dresses (we see her bare back) while the man lies in bed (no actual sex or nudity is seen). A man is shown bare-chested and a woman's cleavage is revealed.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - People are shot with pistols and we see lots of swordplay, sometimes resulting in a bit of blood (at various times a man and woman have blood on their faces and/or torsos and bruises and scratches). A few glimpses of decayed corpses. A woman is tied up and almost executed. Some cannon fire, many explosions and many fires. Quite a few scenes of people beating each other up. A man and woman nearly fall from a substantial height a couple of times. Chases on foot, carriage and aboard ships.

LANGUAGE 3 - A couple of anatomical and scatological references and some mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Piracy, romance, slavery.
MESSAGE - A woman can be just as mean a pirate as a man.
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.
