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

Mob mistress Sharon Stone protects a young boy carrying valuable information from her thug friends. Co-starring Jean-Luke Figueroa, Jeremy Northam, Cathy Moriarty, George C. Scott, Mike Starr, Bonnie Bedelia, Barry McEvoy, Don Billett, Jerry Dean, Tony Dibenedetto, Teddy Atlas, Bobby Cannavale, Sarita Choudhury, Miriam Colon and Desiree F. Casado.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Some sexual innuendo and a few kisses (one is passionate). Five men are forced to undress and we see their bare posteriors. One woman often wears cleavage and leg revealing clothes.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man shoots a woman (we see blood on her clothing); another man holds her very bloody hand before he's shot. We see a dead man with a bloody gunshot wound on his forehead. It's implied that two women are shot. A news clip about a shooting shows several covered bodies being wheeled out of a building. A man slaps a woman, a woman knees a man in the groin, and a man punches and repeatedly kicks another. A man grabs onto a moving car and is slammed into a parked car (he presumably dies). During a car chase, a car crashes into a wall (we see blood splatter on the windshield) and a car crashes through a barrier (the passengers are fine, though). Threatening with guns and several instances of people shooting at other people.

PROFANITY 10 - Nearly 50 F-words, many scatological references, several anatomical references, lots of mild obscenities and many insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Organized crime, murder, loss of family, prison, responsibility.

MESSAGE - A tough and independent woman still has the capacity to love.

Special Keywords: S4 - V7 - P10 - MPAAR

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.
