Feel the Noise | 2007 | PG-13 | - 6.4.5

An aspiring Harlem rapper is arrested for theft, and ends up being sent to Puerto Rico to stay with his father, whom he doesn't know. Inspired by Reggaetón, a blend of hip-hop, reggae and Latin beats, he realizes his dream of making his own music. With Omari Grandberry, Giancarlo Esposito, Victor Rasuk, Charles Duckworth and James McCaffrey. Directed by Alejandro Chomski. [1:26]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A young man and a young woman dance at a club, they kiss, and the scene then shifts to the couple having sex -- we see his bare back as he thrusts and they kiss.
 A man kisses a young woman, she walks away, he follows her and tries to kiss her again, she resists, he picks her up, puts her on a counter and tries to force himself on her; she then kicks him, he falls down and she runs away.
 Several young women wearing skimpy outfits (ultra-short skirts that reveal panties and part of their buttocks and low-cut tops that reveal cleavage) dance on-stage during a performance; one dancer thrusts suggestively against a male singer's thigh.
 Young men and young women dance in several club scenes: the young women wear short skirts and shorts and low-cut or short tops that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens, bare backs and bare thighs, and the dancing involves suggestive thrusting. Another club scene shows two women dancing together and two young men watch them with interest.
 A woman wears low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage. Several young men are shown in swim trunks on a beach (bare chests are shown).
 A young woman kisses a young man on the cheek, and then on the mouth.
 A young man accuses a young woman of having an affair with another man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A young man yells at a woman and becomes aggressive, he then grabs her by the hair and punches her in the face, she falls to the floor and he kicks her repeatedly -- she is behind a counter but we see his actions, hear thumping and see the woman in the hospital later.
 A young man is surrounded by several other young men -- one has a plank of wood -- and they punch and kick him; he falls to the ground and they continue but we do not see the result.
 A man kisses a young woman, she walks away, he follows her and tries to kiss her again, she resists, he picks her up, puts her on a counter and tries to force himself on her; she then kicks him, he falls down and she runs away.
 A young man attacks another man and they fight: one punches the other, he falls to the ground, one kicks the other and throws him against a fence and the fight ends when police arrive and everyone scatters.
 A young man who's stealing a tire from a car is chased through an alley by police and then held at gunpoint. A man shoots a handgun in a crowded dance club causing people to scatter and scream (no one is harmed).

A young man and a young woman argue and she leaves angrily. A young man tries to talk to a young woman, and she tells him to leave her alone (it is implied that they have had a relationship that has ended).

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.
