VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Some scenes where people are repeatedly stabbed in the back, chest and abdomen (once in the cheek) with blood on their bodies, faces and hands. Some of the stabbings are accompanied by squishy sounds and result in puddles of blood and blood spewing from their mouths. People in various scenes have blood on their hands and clothes and scraped knuckles. Someone is nearly stabbed in the face through a door. A woman is thrown through a glass door and off a balcony with a thud resulting in her twisted body lying in a puddle of blood. A few scenes with blood smeared on walls, doors, glass, etc. Blood drips out of a door. A man has deep, bloody gashes on his arm. A corpse has a very bloody torso and bloody streaks on its face. A man's throat is slashed with lots of blood. A man is decapitated as his body twitches, with lots of blood. A man has bloody cuts all over his body. A man is shot in the chest many times with his body jerking and blood pouring out. A couple of women are shot with some blood. A close-up of a bloody face and eye. A stage set nearly crushes a woman. Some people have bloody scrapes and bruises primarily on their faces. Lots of chases, some falls and stumbles. Lots of "jump" scenes, lots of shots of a very bloody knife, threatening with guns and with knives (once held to a woman's throat). A few scuffles, reckless driving, a few fights with face punches, kicks, etc. Bloody bandages and pans are seen in a hospital.

MESSAGE - Movie sequels don't always suck. You can't blame the media for your psychotic tendencies.

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.
