VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A group of people are threatened with laser and real guns; several are shot (their bodies jerk and we see blood spurting). A couple of people are killed in VR and are seemingly electrocuted. Some explosions; a badly burned man is shown a couple of times and fireballs chase some kids. Kids get into a VR scene and fall, are chased and shot at and nearly die (a little blood comes out of one kid's nose). Two men swordfight in VR. A helicopter and a plane crash (the pilots are screaming) and a subway train barrels down on another subway train.

LANGUAGE 5 - Two F-words, a couple of scatological references and some mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - VR, megalomania, computers and technology.

MESSAGE - We must respect technology and science but be careful to use them for good purposes.

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.
