Palmetto | 1998 | R | - 4.5.7

A man (Woody Harrelson) takes part in a kidnapping plot for money, but winds up getting more than he bargained for. With Elisabeth Shue.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A woman tries to seduce a man by licking his shoulder and neck, and sucking his ear. Several lingering shots of women's legs, clothed buttocks and breasts. A woman wears tight form-fitting dresses. A man caresses a woman's clothed breasts and buttocks, and he kisses down her body; there is the implication that they have sex. A woman tries to seduce a man, but nothing happens. We see a woman in her underwear a couple of times. Two scenes of passionate kissing with the implication that sex occurs, but nothing more is shown.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man hits a woman and she hits him back. A man is knocked on the head with a flashlight. A man and woman knock each other around a bit. A couple of dead bodies are discovered. A man is shot in the shoulder (we see some blood on the wound). A man dies after falling into and flailing about in some acid (we see his burning skin briefly). A person is hit several times with a gun. Threatening with guns.

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.
