The Siege | 1998 | R | - 1.6.7

When terrorists attack New York City, the army is called in and martial law declared. With Denzel Washington, Bruce Willis, Annette Bening and Tony Shalhoub.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - There's a scene with a nude man but nothing is really seen. Some kissing and sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Men are shot many times with bloody bullet wounds; we see a very bloody corpse. A man is shot and killed leaving a bloody torso, a man is shot many times, and a woman is shot, leaving a bloody abdomen and blood dripping from her mouth. There are a few more shootouts. A few bloody bombing victims are shown and we see one woman with a bloody arm stump. Scenes of news footage also show bloody bombing victims. There are several other bloody scenes: bloody noses, eyes and ears, a bloody temple, blood on a collar, a bloody towel, and bloody hands. Also blood splatters on blinds, and blood is seen on a windshield. A man is hit by a car (but not injured). A man is elbowed in the face. Many explosions and fires, chases, scuffles, a face slap, threatening with guns, and reckless driving.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 18 F-words, many scatological references, some anatomical references and mild obscenities, one racial epithet.

MESSAGE - We shouldn't fight terrorism with terroristic acts of our own.

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.
