VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A teenager is attacked by a bear leaving three bloody scratch marks on his arm. There are scenes of war: men are shot and fall in fiery explosions, a man's face is cut and blood is shown, corpses are shown and a couple of blackened bodies and skeletons, a man gets tangled in barbed wire and is shot many times by a machine gun; he slowly and graphically dies. A man is shown holding a bloody heart. Two soldiers have their throats slit, and are scalped. A woman is shot and another shoots herself (off-screen). Several men are shown being shot, stabbed and impaled. A skinned animal carcass is shown and the bloody heart of a zebra as it is being removed. A graphic scene showing the shooting of a cow which has been entangled in barbed wire.

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.
