Jet Li stars as a commando who's been enhanced with super
human powers and has to fight his also-enhanced brethren who've turned to crime. Also with
Karen Mok, Lau Ching Wan and Francoise Yip. [1:30]
SEX/NUDITY 2 - A woman in a skimpy S&M outfit hangs from a chain, and
then descends to violently kiss and lick a man while they're lying down.
VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - Oodles of people die, most by gunfire, several during
martial arts fighting, and a few are stabbed. A man is impaled on two metal rods; his
adversary bends the rods while he's writhing, presumably to keep him put. Several people
have their throats slit by sharp discs (we see their throats with the discs sticking out
in a few close-ups). A man cuts his own hand (blood squirts out) and two other men have
their hands cut off. Two men are on fire, and one man explodes and we see what seems to be
his burning, severed head roll on the ground. A bulldozer runs over a man's legs. A woman
takes a razor out of her mouth and cuts a man. There's considerable gore: We see the
severed, decomposing legs of a young girl complete with shoes and frilly socks, several
severed hands (one in several close-ups, with the bone sticking out), and we watch briefly
as surgeons open a man's chest and try to remove an object. We see several corpses whose
faces and bodies have been obviously burned by acid, and we see several people screaming
in pain as they are sprayed with acid and their faces start blistering and burning. A man
has a long, freshly stitched-up incision on his chest, we see several men with bullet
holes on their bodies and faces and there are several close-ups of needles piercing skin.
There are several scenes where blood splatters, drips or squirts: we also see several body
bags, one of which is dripping blood, and a man has a bloody wound bandaged; a hollow tube
is inserted in a man and we see blood pouring out, and blood gushes as men are shot. We
see several bruised faces, bloody lips and mouths. A man urinates (we only see the stream
of urine). Lots of explosions.
PROFANITY 6 - About 10 F-words and derivatives, several scatological and
anatomical terms, and several insults and other profanities. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Vigilantes, super-human commandos, loyalty vs. duty, drug
dealers and crime syndicates.
MESSAGE - It takes a super-duper commando to do away with other super-duper
