Gattaca | 1997 | PG-13 | - 2.4.5

A sci-fi thriller about a future when your genes determine everything about you and your life.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man lies on top of a woman as they kiss (appears to be foreplay). A man and woman lie in bed and we see his bare chest and her bare shoulders (appears to be after sex). A man's bare buttocks.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Lots of shots of blood in vials, bags and needles. Spots of blood on feet, fingers and arms in some scenes. A puddle of blood on a floor, and later we see a very bloody, pulpy head in a puddle of blood (seen twice). A corpse is shown with cuts on its head. A person nearly drowns and a man is nearly hit by cars. A man is beaten with face punches, head butts and kicks. A man incinerates himself (off screen, it is not actually seen). Scuffles.

LANGUAGE 5 - Two F-words, a few scatological references and mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Genetic engineering, the future, space travel.

MESSAGE - You're more than the sum of your genes.

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.
