Also with Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Basinger, Eva Longoria, Martin Donovan and Paul Calderon Directed by Clark Johnson. [1:48]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man touches a woman, they moan, they kiss, he slips her jacket off (we see bare shoulders and straps of her slip), they continue kissing and it is implied that they have sex; we see them hugging later, as he buttons up his shirt.
 A man and a woman kiss, and we see photographs of a man and a woman kissing.
 A man makes a sexual remark about a female Secret Service agent. A man admires a woman's buttocks as she walks past him. A husband and wife are separated because the man suspects that the woman had an affair with another man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man is shot twice, blood spurts, he falls down a short flight of stairs and blood trickles and pools on the stairs. A man is shot twice in the chest in a shopping mall: he falls over a balcony and lands on the floor, while people run and scream, and other shots are fired (we see a dead police officer with blood on his chest).
 A man attacks a man, they struggle, a gun is fired and a man is shot in the chest three times (bloody wounds are visible). A man is shot in the side (we see blood on his shirt). Guns are fired back and forth in a few scenes and several people are shot and killed or wounded. A man grabs a woman, points a gun at a man and he is shot dead. A dead man is shown with a bloody bullet wound. A man holds a gun on a man and shoots him in the back as he walks away (he is wearing a bullet proof vest).
 We see newsreel footage of the shooting of former President Ronald Reagan (we hear gunshots, President Reagan is pushed down and into a car and other men are shot and fall to the ground wounded).
 A man with a gun grabs a hostage and holds her around the neck as he tries to get away. A man punches and incapacitates several agents who try to restrain him.
 There are several scenes that show hand-scrawled messages spelling out threats against the President, and we hear voice messages describing threats against the President (e.g. "I'm gonna' gut him").
 Protestors become aggressive while outside a meeting of government officials, and bottles are thrown at police officers that are trying to subdue them. Armed security is posted on the roof of the White House and we hear secure radio chatter.
 A helicopter is shot out of the sky by a ground-to-air missile.
 Two men argue bitterly in several scenes. A guard dog barks aggressively at a man.

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.
