Die Hard: With a Vengeance | 1995 | R | - 2.8.9

John McClane (Bruce Willis) is back with a new best buddy (Samuel L. Jackson), trying to save New York City from a mad bomber (Jeremy Irons).

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man is shown in boxer shorts with a placard over him. A man climbs on top of his lover as he kisses her and tears open her shirt exposing her bra; she tears his shirt off we hear his zipper open (but nothing further is seen).

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Many explosions: A bomb explodes in a department store, a bomb explodes in a subway tunnel causing mayhem and destruction, another one explodes on a boat. There's also a scary segment about a bomb which may have been planted in an elementary school full of children. The explosions are unfortunately reminiscent of the recent Oklahoma bombing. A man is attacked by a mob: they hit him with fists, a basketball and a bottle, and almost stab him. His very bloody head is shown. A man is cut on the arm resulting in a bloody wound. Many men are shot to death with varying amounts of blood, and exposed wounds. A man is cut in two by a cable (very quickly). An extended fight scene with kicking, punching. etc. A man is stabbed in the leg then beaten with a heavy chain. Several car chases, and one helicopter chase, with shooting, crashing, etc. A man is trapped in a tunnel as it fills with water.

LANGUAGE 9 - 70+ F-words, racial epithets, 20+ scatological references, and many milder obscenities.

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.
