Extreme Measures | 1996 | R | - 2.7.7

Hugh Grant is a doctor who discovers a nefarious medical plot.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Two naked men run down a city street and we see their buttocks and their crotches in shadows.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Close-ups of bloody wounds during medical procedures and in other situations. People are shot and there are some deaths as a result. A man has bloody hands and blood is dripping onto his shoes. A man is hit by a subway train (offscreen) and two men are nearly hit. A man is electrocuted on the subway track. Men have convulsions. A couple of fistfights; a fight in an elevator results in blood on the elevator walls. A man is hit across the back with a bat. A man is shot and lies in a pool of blood. Reckless driving, foot chases.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 25 F-words, some mild obscenities and scatological references, a few anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Paralysis, medical experimentation, doctors.

MESSAGE - You shouldn't kill one person even in order to save many; doctors shouldn't play God; the end does not justify the means.

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.
