VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Chases, falls, many scenes of people trying to outrun the volcano. Rioting, fires and explosions. A volcanic rock falls on a woman's head killing her and resulting in blood on her head and face. Dead, bloody squirrels and two burned, dead bodies with bloody, patchy burns. A bone sticks out of a bloody arm, many bloody faces. A man falls partway down a hill and is covered in rocks resulting in a bloody face and broken leg, a woman wades through acid water and later we see blood on her face and neck and bloody, patchy burns on her legs. Rocks and avalanches hit and nearly bury people, a man with some blood on his temple falls into raging water and drowns. Reckless driving.

LANGUAGE 5 - One mumbled F-word, some mild obscenities, a few scatological references, a couple of anatomical references.

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.
