VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - There are several struggles - to the death. A man is hit in the face with a cleat leaving a bloody wound, a man is hit in the back with a fire poker and a man slits a woman's throat (more blood). A man is shot repeatedly leaving a puddle of blood around his head and a man is stabbed in the back; he is shown with his legs shaking and blood gushing from his mouth. A man gets an ax embedded in his shoulder leaving blood on his shoulder and the ax. A man and a woman are stabbed repeatedly and a woman is cut on the arm (with blood). A man is decapitated leaving a bloody neck. Someone's leg is stabbed resulting in a bloody wound and knife (the bloody knife is seen in many scenes), a leg is caught in a dumbwaiter and we see a bloody, broken, mangled leg; plus we see a hanging, bloody corpse with only one leg. There are multiple punches to the face, a man is hit in the head with a rock and a man is hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. A man is hit by a car and a woman crashes into a car (we see her bloody face and mouth); also a man is hit by a car that breaks his back. A man has very bloody chest wounds and a woman has a bloody collar and sweater. A cut, gaping and bloody throat is shown. We see bloody handprints on a door and two bloody hands. There are several chases, threatening with guns and knives in many scenes, and several "jump" scenes. A knife is swiped at two faces many times. We see a puddle and trail of blood and photos of bloody crime victims.

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.
