VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A couple of explosions (one involves glass; many shards fly into a man's face leaving his face very bloody and killing him). A man is hit in the back of the head with a club. A few gunfights with people being shot and killed. There are several bloody scenes: A man is shot leaving a very bloody abdomen; a bloody smear on a wall and bloodstains on a floor are shown; a man has bloody hands; a bloody corpse (torso); lots of blood is shown oozing out of a chest wound; a woman is shot in the back and a man is shot in the head leaving small, bloody wounds; and we see a man's very bloody face lying in pool of blood. Men repeatedly hit and kick each other resulting in bloody faces and mouths and a man is thrown from a moving train and hit by an oncoming train (not seen though). A man is shot in the chest and killed. There are several falls; once from a great height into glass. A child is nearly hit by a train and later a car. Reckless driving, chases and scuffles.

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.
