The Limey | 1999 | R | - 3.6.9

After his release from prison, Englishman Terence Stamp goes to L.A. with a vengeance to find the person responsible for his daughter's "accidental" death. Also with Peter Fonda, Lesley Ann Warren, Luis Guzman, Barry Newman, Joe Dallesandro, Nicky Katt, Amelia Heinle and Melissa George. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A misogynistic joke in reference to fellatio. In a flashback, we briefly see a couple embracing each other (their bare arms and shoulders are visible). We see a woman wearing a bathing suit (part of her bare buttocks is visible), a woman wearing a towel, the bare back and bare shoulders of a woman in a bathtub (in two different scenes), a woman wearing a towel while scrubbing another man's bare back and a woman undressing in front of a man (her bra and panties are visible). We see several small, ancient-looking figures of a man and woman in various sexual positions and two illustrations of someone's nude posterior (in the background of a scene).

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Several men are shot and killed; we see bloody holes in their clothing and one has a bloody mouth. A man imagines shooting another in the chest, elbow and head; we see two bloody holes in his shirt, a tiny bloody hole in his forehead and blood spraying onto the wall behind him. A man head-butts another and throws him over a ledge; we see his lifeless body lying on the ground below and later see the body being air-lifted on a stretcher. A man shakes a woman roughly and she collapses, then we see blood on his hand as he looks at her lifeless body. A man is stabbed in the back with what looks like a kitchen gadget. In one scene we hear gunshots and it's implied that a man has killed several others (afterwards we see the shooter with some blood sprayed on his face). A man pushes another's head into a desk, bloodying his mouth; one pushes the other against a wall and they punch each other a few times (one is hit in the crotch and seems to be in terrible pain). A man is dragged out of a building and kicked by several people. Several punches, pushes, kicks and scuffles; in one scene, a man chokes another. We see a man who's been bound and gagged. A few people are shot at; in one scene, two men exchange gunfire. A man buys a gun from two teenage boys. A car intentionally runs into another; also, a car hits another and causes it to roll off a cliff and twice, we see a car engulfed in flames. We see a corpse with a bloody temple and forehead. A man twists his ankle and we see some blood on his sock; also, we see some bloody gauze when a man's wound is being cleaned.

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.
