The Pandora Project



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

Daniel Baldwin is the only CIA agent skilled enough to retrieve a deadly radioactive bomb that his equally-crafty former partner stole from the government. Erika Eleniak, Richard Tyson, Tony Todd, Jeff Yagher, Bo Jackson and Robert Hegyes co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo (including a reference to homosexuality). Several passionate kisses (in one scene, a man kisses a woman's clothed stomach and she moans pleasurably). A woman in her bra and underwear kisses a man's neck and cheek.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Lots of threatening with guns and knives, lots of shoot-outs; lots of people are shot and stabbed (we see several bloody corpses and several bloody wounds). One man is strangled and we see and hear a man's neck being snapped by another man. Two buildings and a plane explode. A radioactive bomb goes off in a populated town and we see many corpses lying on the ground (there's no blood, but we do hear flies buzzing around the corpses). The bomb is used three other times, killing several people and two dogs. A man grabs onto a moving truck; he bashes the driver's head into the steering wheel and eventually falls off the truck (but he's not injured). There are several fights involving kicks and punches; during one extended fight scene, a man is thrown over a railing and knocked unconscious. A few scuffles. A man slaps a woman.

PROFANITY 6 - About 5 F-words and one F-word derivative, many anatomical references, several scatological references and lots of mild obscenities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The CIA, the military, undercover operations, crime organizations, betrayal, bombs.

MESSAGE - It doesn't pay to double-cross the CIA .

Special Keywords: S2 - V6 - P6 - 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.
