The Quick and the Dead | 1995 | R | - 3.6.3

Sharon Stone and Gene Hackman star in this western tale of revenge.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some talk of sex and one scene in which a female character wakes up in a male character's bed, but it is not clear that sex really occurred. A few passionate but brief kisses and a glimpse of a woman's cleavage and thigh.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A great deal of violence, much of which comes off as cartoonish. Three or four classic saloon fist fights and several shootings, resulting in a little blood. Two scenes in which the victims have see-through holes blown through them. We also see two hangings and a near hanging and a disturbing scene in which a child is forced to fire a gun.

LANGUAGE 3 - About a half a dozen mild profanities and insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Murder, torture, gambling, using intimidation and force to gain and keep control, revenge.

MESSAGE - You can push someone just so far before he snaps and defends himself.

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.
