Donnie Brasco | 1997 | R | - 2.7.10

An FBI agent successfully infiltrates the Mob. With Johnny Depp and Al Pacino.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo, a brief shot of a woman's breasts. A couple kiss passionately as the woman tears her shirt off and we see her bra; the man is laying on top of her.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A few people are shot and killed with lots of blood and screaming. A man is hit in the back with an ax. Close-ups of bullets tearing into legs with blood spurting and splattering. Some very bloody corpses are seen. A man cuts up some bodies and we see a brief glimpse of bloody body parts; we see him hacking away on a bloody leg as he gets sick. A man is viciously beaten with lots of blood on his face and shirt. A few scenes where people are beaten up and slapped and punched. People are threatened with guns. Animals kill each other on a television program.

LANGUAGE 10 - 100+ F-words, many anatomical references, some scatological references and some mild 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.
