In the process she learns more about her abilities and the truth about the man she is after. Also with Jason O'Mara, Daniel Sunjata, John Leguizamo, Sherri Shepherd and Debbie Reynolds. Directed by Julie Anne Robinson. [1:31]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A fully nude man sits in a chair while holding a newspaper in front of his genitals; a woman walks into the room and the man stands up (we see his bare chest, abdomen, back, buttocks and legs). A woman that's showering is frightened when a man pulls the shower curtain down, and she squats in the tub and covers herself with her arms while they argue (her arms cover her bare breasts and shoulders, cleavage, back, hip and legs are shown; she wraps herself in a towel, the man pulls the towel off (her bare shoulders are seen) and leaves. A woman removes her shirt and we see her wearing a bra (cleavage, bare shoulders and abdomen are seen) while a man outfits her with a wire.
 We see a woman wrapped in a shower curtain (flesh tone can be seen in a few places, but no detail). Two women who are prostitutes are shown wearing low-cut tops and short skirts that reveal cleavage, bare legs and a portion of bare buttocks under the skirts. A woman undresses behind obscured glass doors and a man watches her (flesh tones are seen but no details is evident). Women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage throughout the movie.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man is shot five times in the chest (we see bloody and smoldering bullet holes in his chest). A car with a man inside explodes in a parking lot (we see the car in flames and we understand that the man died). Two men fire guns at each other and one man is shot. We hear gunfire and see that two men have been shot in the head (there are bloody bullet holes in their heads). During a gunfire exchange a woman is shot in the buttock (we do not see the wound or blood).
 A man shoots another man in the chest and he falls to the ground (no blood is seen and we see him uninjured later); the shooter runs, he's clotheslined by a woman (we hear a loud thud), and she handcuffs him and holds him at gunpoint.
 Two men fight with many punches and kicks, one man is slammed into the side of a truck (he has bloody bruises on his face); the other man is sprayed with pepper spray and he thrashes in pain until the other man strikes him in the head with a metal rod and he falls unconscious. Two men in a fighting cage fight: one straddles the other on the mat and punches him several times in the face (we see one man with bruises on his face and his shoulder leave the cage). A man pulls a woman into a fighting cage, slams her against the wall, holds her by the throat and threatens to cut her up until another man shoots at him (no one is struck and we later see the woman with bruises on her throat). A woman sneaks into a building and is pressed against a wall by a man, they argue, the man accuses her of having "run me down with a car and broke my leg," they continue to argue and the man lunges at her several times as they walk. A woman is shoved out of a pick up truck and onto the street where we see her with bloody facial wounds. A man punches another man in the face.
 A man holds a gun on another man and a woman and they argue. A woman holds a gun on a man and they argue (she eventually lowers her weapon and the man takes it away from her). A woman enters her apartment with her gun drawn, finds a man inside with his gun drawn, they talk and drop their weapons.
 A woman follows a man and hides behind a dumpster. A man opens his front door to a woman, she pushes her purse into the door when he tries to close it, and he steals her purse and slams the door. A man talks about having seen a man shoot another man, and that he then hit the shooter on the head with a bottle of alcohol knocking him out (we see a flashback as he describes the scene).
 A man and a woman take target practice in a few scenes and we see the paper targets with holes in the head and body. A woman points a gun at a cooked turkey on a dinner table and shoots it; food splatter sprays on a man seated on the other side of the table. A woman shops for a gun.
 A man has a snake tattooed on his forehead. We see a woman in a wheelchair at a hospital and she has bruises on her face and a cut lip, and her arm is in a sling (after a beating).
 A man and a woman argue in several scenes. We hear that a man "took a dive" from a 4 story window. We hear that an apartment was torched and that the woman and young boy that lived there were not home. A man tells another man that "when you came to help her, she was already dead." A man says that another man had been charged with rape three times. A woman says, "I don't care if the Pope comes here and beats me with a stick." A man says of another man, "he put a bullet in his head." A man says, "I cut my own throat." A woman says to her adult granddaughter, "You should look through your peep hole... I could have had an ax, or worse." A woman talks about a 72-year-old man who was electrocuted and is dead. A woman tells her adult daughter, "I thought you were dead." A woman says that her father is trying to figure out "how to kill Grandma and bury the body." A man says, "I'd rather be shot than go in before I'm ready." A man describes how a bullet "enters like a BB and blows out a chunk like a potato." A woman talks about wanting to "nail Morelli." A woman talks about a man not urinating in his pants when being shot at. A man describes a surgery that he had and that he was left with a "tiny little scar." A man tells a woman not to vomit because that would contaminate the crime scene.
 We see a truck filled with hanging meat carcasses. A man opens a barrel and he and a woman recoil from the smell (we do not see but understand that there is a body in the barrel and it has been there for a while).

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.
