VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A screaming man is jerked underwater and then thrown against boat; when he's pulled out of the water, his mouth is bloody and his lower body is missing (bloody entrails are visible). The same man is shown later on morgue table, covered with a blood-soaked towel. A person's head is bitten off, leaving a bloody stump and twitching legs. A crocodile bites someone; it also snaps at and nearly eats a group of people. A crocodile stalks a man and then attacks his helicopter as a woman shoots at it. A crocodile eats a bear and grabs a cow by its head and drags it underwater; also, we see a videotape of a crocodile eating a water buffalo. A crocodile is shot with tranquilizers and is blown up (we see a bloody explosion of its body parts). A helicopter crashes. A man is turned upside down by his ankle when he steps in a trap and a couple of times boats flip over and people are thrown into water. A punch, two slaps, some falls and chases and threatening with a gun. We see a severed human head with a snake crawling out of its mouth, a severed animal head, an animal corpse underwater and a maggoty severed toe. We see a bruise and cut on a man's forehead, a person's bloody sleeve, a bloody cut on someone's arm and bloody bandages on a crocodile's head.

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.
