Solo | 1996 | PG-13 | - 2.6.5

Mario Van Peebles is a man-made fighting machine.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A brief glimpse of a woman's bare breasts on a pornographic playing card.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Some explosions and fireballs, fistfights with some blood, martial arts fighting with some broken bones and crunching sounds, lots of gunfire (little blood, lots of deaths). A man's back is broken, a couple of men have their necks twisted and snapped, a man is impaled with a missile, a couple of people are crushed, a man is drowned by another offscreen, a man is hanged. Corpses are shown lying on the ground with some blood on them, a helicopter explodes into a mountain. Children are in jeopardy: nearly choked, a tree nearly falls on them, they are nearly bitten by a snake and kicked by an adult. A man has blood and cuts on his face and chest.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, some mild obscenities, a few scatological references, an anatomical reference.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Technology, warfare, betrayal, revenge.

MESSAGE - You have to protect yourself from betrayal.

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.
