Red Corner | 1997 | R | - 3.5.3

Richard Gere is an American accused of murder in China.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A woman's bare breasts are vaguely seen in shadow -- we know she's totally nude but the shadows ensure nothing else is seen. A man's bare bottom in two separate scenes. Scantily clad women and drawings of nude women are seen. A man caresses a woman's clothed breast as they kiss; later we see the couple in bed with her on top of him and thrusting is implied. Kissing. Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There are several scenes showing blood: We see blood on a man's shirt and chest, a woman's head, a knife, a towel, on a floor, a bloody handprint on a wall, and a pool of blood runs down a drain (most of the foregoing are seen at least twice). A man's bloody chest and a bloody corpse are seen a few times. A man is shot with a bit of blood on his chest and a woman is stabbed repeatedly (not actually seen). A man is zapped with a prod, and a man is beaten with punches and kicks, and pushed down stairs. A man kicks and punches a woman and tries to suffocate her, and a woman is pushed through glass. A woman bites a man's arm. A couple of face slaps (once a man falls to the floor as a result). A rooftop chase with jumps between rooftops. Dead animals are seen.

LANGUAGE 3 - A couple of mild obscenities and a few scatological references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - China's legal system and human rights, murder, courtroom advocacy, foreign cultures.

MESSAGE - Don't say you're guilty when you are really innocent. The truth cannot be hidden even under totalitarian regimes.

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.
