Dead Presidents | 1995 | R | - 4.9.9

A group of men (and one woman) plan an armored truck heist in post-Vietnam America.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Some kissing, sexual references, a man and a woman are in bed together, obviously naked although we see no nudity; they kiss and then we see them having sex. A man is shown with a severed penis in his mouth.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - Vietnam scenes: fighting, explosions, bloody wounds and death; the most graphic scenes show a few severed body parts, a man whacks off an enemy's head and then carries it around, a man has his intestines ripped out of his body and a man has his own severed penis stuck in his mouth. A man has nightmares which consist of rotting corpses, severed, bloody heads (it's very gross). There is a shoot-out where many people are shot and killed (with lots of blood). Several people are shot point-blank in the head, with blood spurting out. A man shoots cops through a windshield. A man is hit by a car and then smashes up against a wall while a puddle of blood forms around his head. A few scenes of people fighting which result in bloody mouths and faces.

LANGUAGE 9 - 40+ F-words, many scatological references, many mild obscenities, many anatomical references. A great deal of racial epithets.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The Vietnam war, racism, unwed motherhood, black revolution.

MESSAGE - We owe Vietnam veterans more than what they received when the war ended.

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.
