When they discover a cocaine shipment on a plane that crashed during a storm, they are torn between doing the right thing or doing what will make them money. Also with Scott Caan, Ashley Scott and Josh Brolin. Directed by John Stockwell. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman fight and struggle under water, he grabs her, pulls her top and a hint of her nipple is exposed.
 A woman sunbathes topless on a boat, a coast guard vessel approaches and boards the boat and she stands on the boat with no top on (we see her bare back). A woman wears a low-cut, short top and very short skirt that reveal cleavage, bare abdomen and bare thighs, a woman wears a very short skirt that reveals her bare thighs, and people wear swimsuits throughout the movie that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens, bare legs and part of bare buttocks on the women and bare chests on the men. One man wears skimpy bikini trunks while snorkeling.
 A woman wearing a tank top and panties (we see cleavage, bare abdomen and bare thighs) climbs into bed and straddles a bare-chested man in boxer shorts and they kiss. A man and a woman kiss, they lie back on the deck of a ship and continue kissing. A man and a woman kiss while he is driving (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). A man and a woman kiss in many scenes.
 Men and women dance in a club with suggestive moves. A man and a woman stand very close to each other and talk, and another man approaches acting jealous.
 When a man interrupts a couple kissing, the man involved in the kissing says, "I'm just pluggin' some holes." A man talks about another man getting "so deep into..." and makes a sexual remark.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A shark swims toward a woman, we hear her screaming, we see her being jerked, and we see a large piece of the back of her leg missing and she has a large, bloody, gaping wound when she is pulled out of the water (she then dies in the hospital).
 A man chases a woman through a ship, he tries to grab her and his hand is slammed by a door (we see his twisted, bloody fingers and he screams), and he continues to chase the woman, who hits him with an ax in the chest; he tries to hit her back with another ax, nearly catching her foot with the pointed ax tip, and they fall off the ship together and into water where the man is grabbed in the crotch by a shark and thrashed about (the man screams and we see bits of flesh and blood in the water around him).
 A woman is handcuffed to a dead man, pulling him through a room, and she finds a machete and cuts the man's hand off (we see the severed hand lying near the man's body later).
 A man is shot in the eye with a spear, he bleeds profusely, blood fills the water around him and he is attacked by a shark and is thrashed back and forth (we hear him screaming through his mask). A man is shot through the leg with a spear; he is then pulled off his boat and dragged through the water by another boat. A man is shot through the chest at point-blank range and a woman nearby is splattered with his blood. A man is shot in the stomach with a spear.
 Three men walk through a boat, and we see bloody prints on the carpet and walls, and a dead body lying on the floor; there are two other bodies (we see their feet splattered with blood), another dead man has a bullet hole in his head and one of the men walking through the boat is shot as he walks into a room.
 Several people diving in the ocean find a crashed airplane and see a decayed body still strapped into the pilot seat. An oxygen tank explodes underwater disintegrating a man who's swimming nearby and pushing another to the surface in a large plume of debris and bubbles.
 Several armed men jump into water chasing another man, the men are surrounded by aggressive sharks, and one man pulls another man's mask off and holds him while he thrashes and eventually drowns.
 A man jumps off a ship and into water, he is shot at by men on the ship, and the men then chase him in a smaller boat, but the man clings from the nose of the boat as it speeds through the water. A man holds a gun to the face of another man.
 While trying to lift a cannon from wreckage on the ocean floor, a man becomes pinned under it when the cannon falls and pulls him down (we hear a crunch when his arm is caught). A woman swims into the wreckage of a plane: her air tanks become entangled and she struggles to get free but cannot (we see her later floating in the cabin of the plane with her face in a small pocket of air, and she is OK). Three people are stuck at the bottom of the ocean with empty air tanks, and a woman breathes from a buoy and transfers the air to the other two by mouth.
 Two men fight with two other men on a boat: they punch and kick, two of the men end up in the water, and under one boat while they continue to fight; eventually they separate and two of the men speed off in another boat. Two men fight underwater, thrashing around, and punching and shoving each other. A man punches a man in the face when he sees him talking to his girlfriend; other men grab the man and hold him, and there is more shoving, punching and yelling.
 A man swings a chair at another man (it does not hit him) and threatens to kill him. A man threatens to kill a woman, and a man threatens to kill a man. A man shoves a man to the ground and yells at him threatening to kill him. A man says to another man, "People get shot for boarding a boat without permission."
 An airplane is tossed around in the air when it flies into a heavy storm, and the people on board are knocked about and one man slams his head against a window that breaks and cuts his face (we see the bloody gashes); eventually the plane crashes into the water.
 A man with a gun approaches a car with three people inside, and the car speeds away, while the man follows in another car through narrow alleyways; the first car crashes into another car, and then reverses and one car crashes into a wall. A man and a woman kiss while he is driving, he swerves into lanes of oncoming traffic and they nearly crash. Two men ride jet skis, dodge in and out of boat traffic and jump and flip in the air. A man is pushed to the ocean floor by huge blowers attached to the back of a ship.
 A man dives in the ocean alone at night and we see sharks swimming around him. A man swims in the ocean where many sharks circle around him, he tries to hit them with a mop, and one shark grabs the mop and swims away with it. A man swims in the ocean and many sharks swim around him, another man panics and gets out of the water, tries to convince the first man to get out but he does not (the sharks are not aggressive) and he pretends to be getting bitten.
 A woman stands in a pool of water (at an aquarium) feeding sharks that dart around her legs, and she talks about having been bitten by a shark once. Two men play fight, and one grabs the other in a wrestling hold and straddles him on the floor.

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.
