The Rock | 1996 | R | - 3.8.8

Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage save San Francisco from Ed Harris, a military man turned terrorist.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Kissing, sexual innuendo. Cage and his girlfriend have sex (she's on top of him while they're both clothed, moaning).

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Some explosions, people stabbed, people are beaten up, people are shot and killed (sometimes resulting in spurts of blood gushing out). Bloody corpses, two men are liquified by toxic gas. A car chase results in lots of property damage. A few falls from high places, a man is stabbed in the throat (gurgling and lots of blood), a man has his feet shot with lots of blood and then a heavy object crushes him; we see his death as he twitches. A man injects himself in the heart, a man is impaled on a fence post.

LANGUAGE 8 - 20+ F-words, many scatological references and mild obscenities, some anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Terrorism, the military, chemical weapons.

MESSAGE - Our government isn't always just.

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.
