U Turn | 1997 | R | - 7.8.8

Sean Penn is down on his luck when he gets lost in a weird Arizona town.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - A couple have sex (seen from above) with thrusting; we see his bare buttocks. A couple have sex a couple of times with the woman kneeling in front of the man but no actual nudity can be seen. A few flashbacks where sex is implied with men on top of a woman (no nudity). Sexual innuendo (including implied sexual abuse). Kissing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A man is killed in an extended scene where he is whacked with a golf club and hit in the back and chest with an ax (his chest is split open and is bloody with the ax sticking out). A man has two fingers cut off with lots of blood (we see bleeding stumps later). A man is shot in the chest which gushes blood and a gaping wound is shown. A few men are shot with blood shown on their heads and torsos (sometimes very bloody). A bloody, twisted body on a canyon floor is seen a couple of times. A man is smacked in the head. A man is punched in the face leaving blood on his cheek. Many scenes of a man being beaten up (punches, kicks) and sometimes he's covered in blood. A man is pushed off a ledge which breaks his teeth and twists his leg. A woman is choked. Bodies are shown lying in pools of blood. Threatening with tools and guns.

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.
