Double Team | 1997 | R | - 1.8.3

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman help each other and Van Damme's family.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Lots of scenes of barechested men. Kissing. Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Many people are shot by automatic and other gunfire and they jerk and twitch as the gunshots kill them. A few times blood is shown on torsos and chests when people are shot. A man cuts his thumbprint off in a bloody close-up. A man is burned by an explosion (bloody face and bloody holes in his coat). A man has bloody cuts on his back. A man has a bloody cut on his cheek and later on his forehead that drips down his face. Many scenes of fighting -- usually martial arts with kicks, punches, spins, crunching bones and squishy sounds. A couple of people are choked and strangled. Many, many explosions usually caused by grenades and bombs; these explosions usually throw people up and far. A tiger stalks a man and later jumps on another man. Threatening with guns. People have bruised, scratched faces in a few scenes. A few falls.

LANGUAGE 3 - A few mild obscenities, a few anatomical references, a couple of scatological references.

MESSAGE - When the game or fight becomes personal, that's when your opponent needs to worry.

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.
