Double Team



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: R

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman help each other and Van Damme's family.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Lots of scenes of barechested men. Kissing. Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Many people are shot by automatic and other gunfire and they jerk and twitch as the gunshots kill them. A few times blood is shown on torsos and chests when people are shot. A man cuts his thumbprint off in a bloody close-up. A man is burned by an explosion (bloody face and bloody holes in his coat). A man has bloody cuts on his back. A man has a bloody cut on his cheek and later on his forehead that drips down his face. Many scenes of fighting -- usually martial arts with kicks, punches, spins, crunching bones and squishy sounds. A couple of people are choked and strangled. Many, many explosions usually caused by grenades and bombs; these explosions usually throw people up and far. A tiger stalks a man and later jumps on another man. Threatening with guns. People have bruised, scratched faces in a few scenes. A few falls.

PROFANITY 3 - A few mild obscenities, a few anatomical references, a couple of scatological references. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Martial arts fighting, revenge, terrorism and antiterrorism.

MESSAGE - When the game or fight becomes personal, that's when your opponent needs to worry.

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
