SEX/NUDITY 1 - Mild kissing, always between married couples (only a few minor kissing scenes).

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Three people get knocked down by a tornado/vortex and are eventually sucked into it and killed by it (in one scene a man is twirling so fast inside the vortex that his limbs detach from his body as he's spinning). A man freezes to death and we see a close-up of his purple, frozen face. A man attacks another with a hammer and there's a small scuffle but no one gets hurt. A man is hit in the face by a rock (we see blood on his cheek, neck, collar and front of his space suit) and a man cuts his hand and we see a bit of blood (the blood floats through the spaceship and it's kind of creepy). A space ship explodes (no one is injured).

LANGUAGE 3 - Many mild obscenities and a few insults.

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.
