Unbreakable | 2000 | PG-13 | - 2.5.3

The sole survivor of a terrible train wreck (Bruce Willis) discovers a surprising explanation for his unscathed existence with help from a comic book dealer (Samuel L. Jackson). Also with Robin Wright Penn, Spencer Treat Clark, John Patrick Amedori, Greg Korin, Sean Oliver, Joey Perillo and Jose L. Rodriguez. [1:47]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man asks another if he's masturbating (a slang term is used). A man tells a woman that she drank too much as she lies on a bed, passed out; he closes and locks the door, implying that he'll be having sex with her while she's passed out.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Two people fight: one chokes the other from behind, one is thrown against a wall (leaving dents), and one is finally choked to death. Someone breaks into a house and we briefly see the owner lying dead (we later see the body again with a bloody chest); we also see the killer running into the owner ("rushing" him). A person is pushed off a balcony into a pool and nearly drowns, a person trapped in a flame-engulfed car is rescued, a person driving by in a car smashes a bottle against the back of another's head, a boy threatens his father with gun, two crying girls are seen with their hands bound above their heads, a person falls down steps with an audible thud and a groan (we later discover he has broken many bones), and a man being pushed in a wheelchair bumps his legs into displays of comics, causing them to fall into the aisle. A train speeds up and people look worried; we discover later that the train crashed and nearly all of the passengers were killed. We see a corpse (with bloody wrists and a bruised eye) with its hands tied above its head, a spreading blood stain on a bandage, and a scratch on a boy's cheek.

LANGUAGE 3 - One scatological reference, one anatomical reference, and a couple of religious profanities and exclamations.

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.
