PAW Patrol: The Movie VIOLENCE/GORE 2

 – A subway train speeds along a track and onto a loop-the-loop high in the air; the track shakes and separates, the supports begin to pull out of the ground, and the cars get stuck at the top of the loop, throwing people around the cars (the people are rescued, unharmed). A machine sputters in the sky, blots shoot out of it and it blows out dark storm clouds that swirl in the sky; hurricane force winds blow on the ground below and intense storms with flashes of lightning move into a city where people run for cover (we see cars overturned, a net is deployed to catch a truck that has been thrown, and a man’s hairpiece blows off). A car sinks underwater when it is blown off the road and a dog goes after it on an underwater vehicle; the dog retrieves the three people in the car and brings them safely to the surface. A tall tower sways in heavy winds and it eventually topples over dropping large metal girders to the ground below; a man and several cats are dropped very quickly in an elevator (they are OK). A family of turtles pull themselves across a road and one small turtle lags behind; a truck approaches and the driver loses control when he tries to avoid crushing the creature, the truck jackknifes, and dangles over the side of a bridge (there are no injuries). A man in a truck panics when a rescue team arrives and he realizes that the team member sent to rescue him is actually a puppy. A man in a truck cab dangling over a bridge yells for help to a passing boat below him. A dog stands on a ledge high over the ground and becomes nervous when part of the ledge breaks away under its paws; he freezes and cowers until another dog helps him down. A dog runs away from its team and is caught by two men with a net; they put it in a building labeled “obedience school” and another dog inside calls it “jail.” A dog speeds on a motorcycle up the side of a building and to the roof searching for a boy, the dog sees the boy’s emergency light flashing and becomes frightened when a grappling hook falls and pulls the dog over the edge; the dog climbs back up and jumps a wide gap and finds the boy; the two struggle to lift a heavy piece of debris pinning the boy and they are both safe. A dog in a plane ejects and the plane flies into a machine out-of-control causing them both to explode (the dog lands safely on the ground).
 A machine whirs and sucks a few cats off the floor (they are unharmed), it then sucks a man’s hat off his head and the spinning blades cut it to pieces; the machine then flies into the sky and sucks up many storm clouds. Cats dance on a control panel causing numerous fireworks to launch and ignite and causing people to run in panic; one firework shoots through a man’s hat, and a building catches fire. Two men argue in a few scenes and slap at each other.
 A dog on a subway train yells at a man after he throws a food wrapper on the floor and refuses to pick it up; the dog threatens to throw the man in the trash and the man cowers and picks up the litter. A man drives erratically through traffic in a city street. A truck driver panics and swerves on the road when he spills a frozen beverage on his lap; he says, “I’ve got blue Slushee in my skivvies.” A dog yells about having servings of pancakes and waffles to hand out with spilled maple syrup on a roadway after a truck overturns. A man yells at a dog and says, “No dogs” at a political rally. A dog says, “He’s going to destroy the whole city.” A puppy remembers being abandoned in a big city and feeling frightened; he walks across a crosswalk and is nearly struck by a truck. A man complains about rain in a city. A dog says, “Stop them before they burn down the city.” A dog yells at a man in a car to move out of the way so that emergency vehicles can get through a traffic jam; the dog leads the vehicles through narrow alleys at high speed. A man yells for other men to find a team of dogs, catch them and lock them away. A man yells at a woman about a machine she has created and tells her that if she doesn’t make it work, he’ll shut down the university. A man yells at a woman and tells her to “get out.” We see many lost dog signs posted in a market. When a man wearing boxer shorts is shown on a TV broadcast he exclaims, “If this goes viral, I’m cancelling the Internet.” A man tells a woman to, “Dumb it down for me.” We hear that a man won a mayoral election by default because his was the only name on the ballot.
 A dog sails with a parachute to a balcony of a building in flames where people are standing, the parachute pulls the dog off the balcony and he dangles until he is lowered by a boy on the balcony; the dog is also splashed with a ball of water shot from a water cannon. A dog dangles from a cable and lowers itself to retrieve a trapped truck driver from his truck dangling over a bridge; other dogs create a safety perimeter in the water below and another flies a helicopter nearby (the driver is returned to the bridge unharmed). A dog drives a firetruck that shoots water at a building in flames, another dog uses a bulldozer to pick up a pile of fireworks and when they explode in the back of the vehicle, it is tossed around like a bucking bronco. Two men tussle over a hat while driving in a truck and the driver swerves across crowded lanes of traffic.
 A dog pushes a luggage cart piled with suitcases up a ramp and it topples on top of it (he is not harmed). A crane picks a man up by the pants and they tear off (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details). Several dogs sleep and snore loudly after ravaging a suitcase filled with dog biscuits. A dog is thrown back into a couple of other dogs (none are injured). Dogs rev the engines of their cars and trucks and speed down a ramp when they are called to a crisis. A dog spins around frantically, seems afraid and hides in a couple of scenes.
 A wrecking ball slams through the wall of a building freeing many dogs being held inside. A man throws scale models of a library and a museum on the ground breaking them. A cat pushes a man’s coffee cup off his desk and we hear it shatter on the floor. A man throws his shoe into a large TV screen cracking it. Cats hiss at a boy.
 A boy in a car sticks his tongue to the window glass as the car passes a bus filled with dogs that return the gesture. A dog is strapped into a costume that is too small and it snaps off. A man’s hairpiece is blown off his head and a dog puts it on its own head; the man pulls it off the dog and grumbles. Several dogs jump on a boy and lick his face; he complains of being “covered in drool.” A dog says that its tongue is too big for its mouth (we see it drooping out of its mouth).

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.
