VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man shoots a woman in the head (we see blood spray and she falls back on the ground dead). Men with guns shoot at a man and a woman as they escape a house and run through woods; the gunmen continue to shoot and one man with a knife attacks the first man stabbing him in the shoulder (we see blood) until the woman hits the man holding the knife over the head several times with a log knocking him unconscious (he may be dead). A woman shoots a man and blood sprays out of the wound. A man with a gun shoots into a house and a man falls to the floor moaning; the wounded man crawls away but is shot again when the gunman enters the house.

A woman strikes a man in the head with a rock repeatedly (we see his bloody face and head).

A woman hides in a car until a man shoots the window out and pulls her out of the car; she is bound and injected with something that sedates her. A man quizzes another man about how he learned to fix cars and the second man punches the first man in the face; the punched man draws a knife and is interrupted when a sheriff arrives.

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.
