 Men and women enter a club where loud music is playing and they all dance and hold alcoholic beverages. Several men in a men's bathroom assume that sexual activity is taking place in a stall when they see three pairs of feet under the door; they knock on the door and make remarks about what's happening, and then leave (there is no sexual activity taking place).
 An extended scene takes place in a men's washroom with men using urinals (we see no nudity and hear toilet flushes but that's all).

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Several men in a bar look threatening and they each lunge with knives toward a woman; another man acquires the knives and stabs them, the woman stabs one man in the chest with her own knife, then slashes another across the throat (we see splatters of blood), another man shoots at the woman and another woman kicks him to the floor. Two men fight with a third man in a men's restroom: the third man punches and kicks and flips the other two and holds one across the throat with a plumbing pipe, there is a lot of destruction and eventually when the third man prepares to shoot one of the other two, and he is shot in the head (we see a lot of blood on the floor and on the man's shirt.
 A man wraps a rope around another man's neck and they fight briefly with one man hitting the other in the head with a bottle, breaking it, and the man with the rope around his neck is pulled off the floor and dangles gasping; a woman kicks a box under the feet of the hanging man and he breathes while the woman and the first man fight and the woman stabs the man in the back of the leg with a broken bottle and strangles him with her legs and hands (we see him fall unconscious).
 An extended scene shows a man dangling from under a flying helicopter, losing his grip and catching onto the helicopter's payload that hangs from under it: the man fights the pilot and a passenger and throws them both out mid-flight, he rights the vessel and chases another helicopter, tries to drop the payload on the other helicopter but misses, and then they chase each other with the passenger of one shooting at the other; one helicopter crashes into the other and they both crash onto a snowy mountain side where they tumble toward a ledge and fall over leaving their passengers on the snowy surface where they fight and fall over the side and one of them is dragged down with a helicopter that explodes when it hits the ground below (we see one man's face badly burned and with one eye swollen shut).
 Two men suit up with oxygen tanks and parachutes while on a carrier plane: one man pulls the oxygen tube out of the other man's mask and jumps off the back of the plane at 25,000+ feet and into a lightning storm where he is struck and falls unconscious with his breathing tube detached until the other man helps him and they both land on the roof of a building. Two men in a truck speed through a narrow alley and get stuck between the walls where they kick out the windshield and escape on motorcycles as they are shot at by those chasing them. A man on a motorcycle is chased by police cars and they speed through crowded streets nearly being struck by a truck and speeding into oncoming traffic; the motorcycle rider crashes into a car and is thrown onto the ground, but gets away. Two men in a car are chased by a person on a motorcycle and they are shot at: they speed through intersections until the motorcycle stops in the car's path and the rider aims a gun at the two men in the car and is struck by the car when it speeds up (we see the person with the gun limp away).
 A sniper shoots at an oncoming vehicle and a man inside is struck (we see blood on his ear). Gunfire is exchanged in a dark tunnel area where we see many men struck and fall dead (no blood is evident); one man punches another man and they fight briefly until one of the men is stabbed and dies (we see blood on his shirt). A police caravan is attacked by gunmen and one vehicle explodes, several officers are shot dead and one is shot and then shot dead at close range. A truck overturns blocking a road causing a caravan to take a different route where a truck rams one of the trucks caring a prisoner and shoves it into a river where it fills with water quickly (the man chained inside is rescued).
 A police officer holds a gun on 5 men until she is shot in the leg (we see blood) and the shooter approaches her to shoot her again but he and several other men are shot dead instead. A man is held with a gun to his head and another man shoots him in the chest twice and then shoots at the gunman who runs away (the man who was shot is shown to have been wearing a bullet proof vest and he is OK). Four men are shot dead and fall to the ground (no blood is shown). A man holds a gun to the back of the head of another man who spins around and gets the gun and then pulls the trigger but it does not discharge.
 A man on foot is chased by many gunmen and he runs through a funeral where many mourners are gathered; he runs to the rooftop and jumps across buildings nearly missing once, he runs through an office and uses a chair to break out a window that he jumps through and lands on another roof below (seemingly unharmed). A man dangles from the bottom of a moving elevator where another man is inside it and threatens a woman with death; the man dangling chases the other man onto a roof after it stops and watches as the man lifts off in a helicopter and flies away.
 A man with a gun gets out of a car and points the gun at two other men during a meeting. A man in a van is held at gunpoint when he gets out of the van. A man holding a gun answers his door and accepts a package. A woman with a gun searches for a man in a building; the man grabs her through a wall and strikes her in the face with a piece of wood (we later see her with a bloody head wound and she is bound, gagged and tied into a chair).
 A man lunges toward a man cuffed to a hospital bed and threatens to beat him until another man catches him and holds him back. A man grabs a woman by the arm aggressively and another man pulls the first man away with a threat. A man is shown handcuffed and chained to the inside of a transport vehicle. A man is hog tied on the floor. A man gets out of the trunk of one car and is put in the trunk of another car.
 We see a photo of several dead bodies on the ground (we do not see blood). A man and a woman hug during their wedding vows as a nuclear explosion is seen in the distance; we see them both turn to char and blow away when the shockwave blows through (this is a dream sequence). A man has several nightmares about mass destruction and loved ones dying and he wakes up in a start each time.
 Two men argue and yell at each other. A man says, "I'd murder women and children with smallpox." A man and a woman argue over a mission. Two men argue about how to handle a mission. We hear that a man gassed a village of 2,000 people. A comment is made about someone "wanting their pound of flesh." We hear that a man started a smallpox epidemic and killed many people. We hear that a terrorist group's plan is to starve 1/3 of the world's population.
 We hear news reports of simultaneous nuclear explosions in Rome, Jerusalem, Mecca, Saudi Arabia and that the death toll is very high; we see cities in rubble and flames. A man opens a case containing plutonium cartridges; another man uses a device to touch the outer casing that makes a sound and lights flash. A recording device self-destructs in a puff of smoke.
 A man's finger is pricked by a pin and a drop of his blood falls on a pad that initiates a recording device and plays mission details. A man is shown with a cut on his head and he is attached to monitors and IVs in a hospital bed (he is handcuffed to the bed). People peel off rubber masks in several scenes exposing their real identity. A man is shown in a hospital bed with IVs and monitors attached to him and with scratches on his face.

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.
