Malice | 1993 | R | - 6.7.6

Who's-doing-it thriller about a serial killer/rapist, with Alec Baldwin and Nicole Kidman.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - There are three sex scenes with varying degrees of intensity. All the sex scenes include nudity -- primarily female: there are nude posteriors several times as well as breasts. A man is shown nude -- but his private parts are not exposed. The most intense scene leaves nothing to the imagination, including the sound effects and the number of sweat beads collecting on skin. Oral sex is also implied. One scene shows a young boy watching a couple from a neighboring window. There is also a discussion of a rape.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Several women are murdered and an attempt is made on a young boy. One woman is strangled. There is a gruesome lingering view of another woman who is found battered and bloody. We also see several very bloody and graphic surgery scenes. One man is shot at point blank range. And there are a couple of fight scenes with punching, shoving over balconies, and smashing inanimate objects over heads.

LANGUAGE 6 - There are numerous F-words as well as scatological terms, anatomical and sexual references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Rape, abortion, adultery, murder, insurance fraud, alcohol abuse, misuse of prescription drugs, physician malpractice/lawsuit.

MESSAGE - Bad things happen to good people all the time and for no reason -- but they usually come out ahead in the end.

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.
