- A woman enters a man's room, she removes her clothing down to her bra and panties, straddles the man's lap, they kiss, she removes her bra (we see her bare back), he kisses her chest, and sex is implied (we see them lying together on a sofa, and under a blanket (we see bare legs, their backs and his chest).
► A man and a woman kiss passionately, she begins unbuttoning his shirt, and sex is implied (we see them later lying on a bed talking; she's wearing a camisole and panties and we see his bare chest).
► A man and a woman go to a hotel room together, she moves close to him, rubs her nose against his and they talk in hushed tones (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). A man kisses two women. A man touches a woman's exposed cleavage as he stops briefly by her side.
► When a woman wearing a camisole and panties dives through an open bathroom door we see her bare legs to the lower buttocks and she strikes a seductive pose while curled up in a bathtub, hiding from bullets.
► We see two women wearing bikinis and a man has his arms around them. A woman wears low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage, and tight-fitting pants; the camera focuses on her hips and buttocks as she walks in several scenes. Two women wear very low-cut tank tops that reveal deep cleavage. A woman wears a short top that reveals her bare abdomen. Women are shown wearing swimsuits while in and around a pool.
► A shadow puppet skit shows a Godzilla-type creature mounting another creature and thrusting briefly. Two men are shown inspecting female dolls in a doll factory and we see one man grab a doll by the unclothed breast (we see the doll unclothed from the waist up and wearing panties) and listen to its voice recording saying, "I love you…" A man wears a T-shirt with a picture of a woman eating a hot dog in a provocative manner. Men play cards using a deck with images of scantily clad women in seductive poses on them (short shorts and short tops that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens and bare legs).
► A man in an elevator changes his clothing, we see him in a skin-tight shirt that accentuates his physique and when drops his pants (we see his bare knees and calves) the elevator doors open and four women admire him; he makes a remark about his endowment and the doors close again.
► A man talks about the phrase "Clay and his unit" sounding like a "porno." A man talks about having a "pant busting crush" on a woman. A man makes a remark about "hookers." A man talks about having "anal stuff" done to him.

- A sniper shoots a man on a motorcycle, who is thrown in flames off the motorcycle, through the air and into the whirring engine of a plane, causing it to explode (we see a man on the plane also engulfed in flames).
► There are several scenes that feature a sniper that shoots and kills people from a great distance (we see the strikes but blood is not usually evident). A man holds a knife to the throat of a small boy, he's shot by another man (we hear the shots but do not see the outcome) and the boy is taken away unharmed. A man shoots another man at close range three times (we do not see the wounds but see the man lying dead in heavy shadow later) A woman is shot and falls to the ground (we see her fall and hear the thud but do not see a bullet wound or blood). A man with his arms around two women is shot and falls to the ground (the women scream and run away unharmed).
► A rocket shoots down a helicopter with young children: the helicopter explodes, flaming pieces fall to the ground and we see a teddy bear, torn and burning.
► Three men are held at gunpoint and told to get on their knees (preparing themselves for execution); one man does not get on his knees and is shot in each leg (he then falls and we see blood on his legs), and another man is held with a gun to his head.
► Three armed guards surround a man who holds his hands in the shape of guns and makes shooting motions, whereupon two of the men are shot and fall to the floor (we see their bulletproof vests take the impact and no blood is evident); the third guard surrenders without being shot. A man shoots another man in the arm (we see the bloody wound and the man licks the blood).
► Men in a van break through a fence and into a compound, and they open fire on several men, who shoot back at them: we see several men thrown when struck but no blood is visible. A firefight in a shipping yard breaks out and many men are shown being shot and thrown to the ground. There are a few scenes that show people lying motionless on the ground after a firefight and it is presumed they are dead although no wounds are visible.
► A woman holds two guns on five men and a few of them hold guns on her: one man complains that she is pointing the gun at his crotch, she shoots one man in the arm (he yells and we see blood later), and the other men shoot at her as she dives though an open bathroom door and takes refuge in the bathtub.
► A man and a woman fight with many loud punches and kicks: one slams a chair against the other, a bottle is broken over the man's head and another bottle is thrown at him, the woman is punched in the face, a TV is thrown at the man, and a fire starts in the room while they continue to fight (they get out relatively unharmed).
► A man throws a knife at another man, they fight, one man slashes the other with two knives (we see some blood on his arm), they continue to fight, one chases the other onto a plane, pushes his thumb into the man's eye (we see the cheek below the eye bloody later) and he is thrown out the door and he lands hard on his back.
► A man's bloody bullet wound is shown and we see a stitch drawn through the flesh. A man is struck in the head by another man with a gun (we see him later with a bloody gash on his forehead and he spits out a bit of blood.
► A helicopter lifts a large truck off the ground with a large magnet and flies away (the truck crashes into the wall of a building but is pulled away).
► A man shoots the tire of a car out and we see the car swerve and a fire ignite under the hood (no one is harmed); many armed men exit the car and tear gas is launched toward them. A car is blown up from a remote device and it is thrown in the air with a large plume of flames. A helicopter is fired at from the ground (we see holes open in the side of the helicopter but nothing is damaged and no one inside is injured). A woman fires a rocket and freight containers explode, throwing men that are standing nearby to the ground. A helicopter is shot repeatedly and crashes in the distance (we do not see the crash).
► Two men argue and one punches the other in the face, whereupon the other man pulls a large knife and threatens him. A man with a briefcase hits another man in the head with it (he stumbles and falls).
► Four people are shot with sleeping darts and fall to the ground (we see them sleeping and neatly lined up on the side of a road). Two men are tasered and they fall to the ground motionless.
► A man is pushed off a high-rise building, we see him falling, hear him yelling and we hear people on the street below screaming but we do not see the result; two other men fear that they will be next. A man dives from a high platform into water to retrieve something (he's OK).
► A weapon is activated and we see a small island begin to disintegrate and get sucked under the ocean; nothing remains.
► A woman pours gasoline into a locked van containing armed men and a man threatens to set them on fire, and they come out with their weapons drawn. A man holds a gun to a woman's head and threatens to kill her (he does not).
► A man fires a rocket (we do not see where it strikes). A man shoots the side of a car with a dart (presumably targeting it). A woman shoots at a man on a motorcycle and misses.
► Several men and many children are in a small bus when the bus is pushed over a ridge by a large explosion and stops abruptly (we hear the children screaming, but no one is harmed). Children are ushered into an area that has been marked for a bombing raid. A man breaks through a glass panel in a roof and drops to the floor inside only to be surrounded by many heavily armed men.
► Two men argue over whether a deal they have made has negative moral issues. A man threatens to cut another man's head off in a couple of scenes. A man threatens to kill a woman. We hear about a man having been shot in the leg by a scorned lover and that another ex-lover put a bomb in his car. A man and a woman argue on a soccer field over a missed call and they bump bellies and yell. A woman tells a man that for a hobby she "collected human ears." A man is condescending to Indians and mocks their accents.
► Two men run through shipping pier jumping and climbing on and between freight containers and one man is briefly held up on barbed wire at the top of a fence. Several men lie on a road pretending to be wounded or dead after a car crash.
► A woman is shown to have a handgun tucked in the waistband of her pants while in a bar. We see a compound with many armed men in a thickly wooded area and a team of men marks it for a bombing raid.
► Many people gather and cheer at a cockfight: we watch part of the fight and the roosters pecking at each other; we understand that there is an attack and an unpleasant result when a man reacts with disgust.
► Men pull out large knives and guns to bet with while playing cards.
► Two men with multiple tattoos and piercings sit next to a man and remark about his watch in a threatening manner. A man's badly scarred hand is shown and he appears to be missing two fingers. A man is shown with a large scar down his forehead and cheek.

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.
