Metro | 1997 | R | - 3.8.9

Hostage negotiator Eddie Murphy wants to get a jewel thief after the thief kills his friend.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo, kissing (sometimes passionate). A photo of a bare-breasted woman with a man's hands covering her breasts; we briefly see some bare-breasted women, and women wearing thong bathing suits and a woman is seen in a bra.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Car chases. People are shot with guns in some scenes with bloody wounds (blood on a man's chest, blood sprays from a man's arm when he's shot and it splatters). A man has blood on his torso and head from bullet to the head and a man's leg is bloody. A man is stabbed many times with a knife and has his throat slit (there's a lot of blood). A few "jump" scenes: a man is attacked, dogs jump out at people. A cut-off, bloody ear is shown. Threatening with guns, threatening with knives and attempted stabbings. People are beaten in a few fights with some blood on faces/heads (with punches, by throwing each other around and hitting objects and walls; some vicious kicks). A woman is hit in the head with a gun. Many bodies lie dead on a floor. A person is thrown from a cable car. A man tries to run over another man with his car and a man is hit by a car. A man tries to strangle a woman. Explosions.

LANGUAGE 9 - 75+ F-words, many scatological references, many anatomical references, some mild obscenities, a racial slur.

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.
