VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is shot (off-camera) and seriously wounded. Two creeps hold a boy at gunpoint. One creep's trigger finger is shot off. The dismembered finger is found later, stuck on a skewer. There are two barroom brawl-type fights, with plenty of punching, etc; no blood. A man is hit twice with a whip. There is a gunfight involving a group of men, but it is unclear what, if any, injuries occur. A guy gets hit in the groin with a pole. Some other guys get knocked silly with the same pole. A man is buried in a collapsed tunnel.

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.
