 A man is shot in the chest and dies. A man jumps through a window and into a room where many men with guns open fire on him (we see blood spurt from the bullet wounds and blood is shown on the side of a bar as he jumps over it), and he uses two long swords to cut off the gunmen's limbs and heads (we see blood spray and severed limbs and heads are thrown).

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.
