VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man is placed in a cylindrical machine according to his mother's orders and the door is locked (we hear him pleading and screaming for his mother not to do this), the machine is turned on and we see a thick liquid pour into a container (the man is presumably liquefied).
 Two men with automatic weapons shoot into a barber shop where several men are shot and killed (we see blood splatter and pool on the floor). Several men with guns break into a house and open fire with automatic weapons as a man and a woman inside shoot back at them; the woman is shot through the floor and we see her with a very bloody neck wound as she dies on the floor and the man and another woman throw flaming bottles of alcohol to surround the men so they can escape. Two men argue (one appears drunk) and one pulls a gun on the other, they fight briefly, two other men join in the fight and the gunman is knocked down; he gets up and shoots toward the other man hitting a woman in the distance in the abdomen (we see blood and she screams). Armed police move into a building and open fire killing many men inside (we see blood splatter and wounds on bodies). A police officer shoots into a car killing a man and a woman inside while yelling for them to take their hand off a gun (we do not see blood). A man holds a gun on another man while they talk, then shoots a third man twice (we see blood on his chest and abdomen) and his body is placed in a machine that liquefies it. We see several dead men outside a building (bloody bullets holes are evident).
 Two men fight with punches and kicks (one man has a bloody nose) and one man beats the other repeatedly with the man's own retractable baton (we see the man's arm break from a distance), and then kicks him in the face (blood sprays). Two women fight pulling each other's hair and wrestling on the floor until they are pulled apart by others that are watching. Two men fight with punches and throws and one holds the other in a chokehold. A man punches another man in the face and other men draw weapons on him. Two men argue when one man asks for money the other man owes him; men with guns stand nearby. Two men spar on a mat and punch, throw and kick each other. A man pins another man to a mat and holds him until he taps out (it's during a martial arts class). Two men take target practice with a variety of weapons.
 A woman holds a gun to a man's head and threatens to shoot him if a woman doesn't answer her questions. A man follows another man through a market until he is held at gunpoint, a bag is placed over his head and he is taken to a plane. A man answers a door wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a large automatic weapon.
 A man and a woman in a car speed away and are chased by two other cars, one flips on its side and we see the driver with a bloody head wound; the remaining cars speed through pedestrian areas and a park before one crashes into a statue and blows up (killing the driver, but we do not see him).
 Two men argue in several scenes. A man yells and punches his steering wheel in anger. Two men negotiate a drug deal. A man has a flashback to his mother yelling at him about the people he is associating with and the things he is doing (like drugs). Two men argue about one of them starting a war with another group of people. A woman asks a man, "Were you beaten as a child," and he replies, "All the time."

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.
