Ben Affleck plays a car thief recently released from prison
-- and intent on not returning -- who is forced to help a group of gun-running thugs rob a
casino. Also with Donal Logue, Dennis Farina, James Frain, Mark Hoeppner, James Hutson,
Ashton Kutcher, Gary Sinise, Charlize Theron, Danny Trejo and Clarence Williams III. [1:45]
SEX/NUDITY 6 - Many instances of sexual innuendo and several kisses (a few
are passionate). A man and woman kiss passionately while undressing each other and moving
around the room with her legs wrapped around his waist; we then see them in bed, thrusting
and moaning, and then see his head disappear below her waist (during the scene we see
their bare buttocks and her bare breasts). We see a woman's bare breasts when she takes
off her bikini top in front of a man; also, we see the back of a woman wearing panties, a
tank top and thigh-high stockings.
VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Several people are shot and killed; a few times throughout
the movie we see the corpses with bloody gunshot wounds (one is lying in a pool of bloody
snow) and in one scene we see blood on some walls. A man is stabbed in the stomach and has
lots of blood on his mouth, hands and clothing; we later learn he died. A person engulfed
in flames falls backwards through a window and lands on a car hood. A car engulfed in
flames hits a person, then both fall off a cliff; also, a truck with someone inside falls
off a cliff and explodes at the bottom. A man is presumably killed when the small icehouse
he's in is shot many times. A car backs into someone, briefly pinning the person against a
wall; also, a car drives through a building and hits two people. A man throws several
darts in a wall behind a man's head, then throws two into his shoulder and chest. Two
people fall through ice covering a lake and nearly drown. Many scenes of people being
beaten up: a person is beaten with a pipe, another is backhanded in the nose (we see some
blood), another is pushed into a wall and held there, another is held on the ground, a
bottle is broken over someone's head, several people are punched and kicked
(sometimes repeatedly) and several people are shoved and/or thrown to the ground. Some
scuffling and a face slap. A few people roll down a large hill. A man overturns a table.
Lots of threatening with guns and knives; several people are shot at throughout the movie.
Some reckless driving and a car chase. Prisoners find roaches in their gelatin, which
results in a riot (people throwing food, punching, hitting each other with trays, etc.).
We see someone with a bloody face and another with a bloody mouth.
PROFANITY 10 - About 60 F-words, an anatomical reference, lots of
scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and some insults. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Prison, murder, robberies, lust, assuming another's
identity, deception, gambling.
MESSAGE - No one can be trusted; there's no honor among thieves.
