Remake of the 1973 film, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a man who returns home after 8 years in the army to find a town run by an unscrupulous casino owner who also distributes drugs. Not willing to accept the situation, he vows to become the sheriff and clean the town up using mostly a 2x4. Ostensibly inspired by true events. Also with Johnny Knoxville, Neal McDonough, Ashley Scott, Kristen Wilson, John Beasley and Khleo Thomas. Directed by Kevin Bray. [1:26]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man sits alone in a room, a window opens and he watches a woman on the other side of the window pane dancing seductively: she removes her jacket, and she is in a tiny bikini and thigh-high boots (revealing cleavage, buttocks, bare abdomen and thighs), and she makes suggestive moves, dancing around a pole while he admires her. A man and a woman kiss tenderly, remove each other's shirts (we see him bare-chested and her in a bra) and caress each other. A woman wears a mesh skirt that reveals her bare buttocks. Men talk about finding women in a casino, and a man offers a woman to a man in a casino. A man talks about men "groping the girls" in a casino, and two men talk about "frisking dudes' crotches." Two men make a few comments about a man being in jail and the potential for jail cell sex he may encounter. We see an adult video store with a mannequin wearing a lace teddy. Women in a casino wear very tiny bikini-type outfits, some women dance on bars, around poles, and others dance on pedestals where men have water poured over them to wet their T-shirts (cleavage, bare abdomens, bare thighs and buttocks are exposed). We see a bare-chested man, and a woman wears a low-cut, short top that reveals cleavage and her bare abdomen.
VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man lies unconscious on a table, he comes around and is surrounded by other men; one man grabs a utility knife, the others hold the man down and cut him with the knife -- we see the man struggling, and the man with the knife pressing down hard on his chest. A man with a 2x4 goes into a casino, he breaks a slot machine, he pounds on a man, then another man comes at him with a gun, he hits him and breaks his arm with the 2x4 (we see the arm bend and hear a crack), he fights with a man (with punches and shoving), hits him in the face with the 2x4, and throws the 2x4 through a large one-way mirror, shattering it (a man is on the other side). A man is shot in the leg, a boy is punched in the face, a man holds a gun to a woman's head, a man hits another man in the face with a gun, and two men shoot back and forth at each other. A man stabs a man in the chest with a vegetable peeler and then hits him in the head with a pan, two men fight, one is punched in the crotch, and then in the face repeatedly. A man holds two police officers at gunpoint, and he is shot and killed by another man. A man falls through a trap door, he hangs from a saw blade, another man hits him repeatedly with a stick, they both fall down a shaft, and one is shoved out of an opening and falls some distance to the ground and breaks his leg -- we see blood on his pants and hear a loud crack when he tries to put it back in place; the other man then charges toward him with a hatchet, they roll down a hill, they fight with the hatchet and a stick, hitting each other many times -- one is kneed in the nose (blood spurts), and one is slammed against a tree and hit hard on the knees (he ends up on the ground with blood on his face). Two men beat up many other men. A man shoves a man, security is called, they grab the man around the throat, he fights with them shoving the head of one into a table, another man joins the fight and is elbowed in the nose, people are thrown over tables, and a man is tasered and clubbed repeatedly in the head (he has a bloody nose). A battered and bloody man lies on a road and a truck nearly runs him over. People are held at gunpoint, the man with the gun is kicked down the stairs and fires his weapon into the ceiling. Several men surround a sheriff's office and shoot guns into the building (two men and a woman are inside); bullets fly everywhere, the men are eventually picked off one-by-one by the people inside, one is shot from below as he walks across a floor, two are shot through a wall, and a man shoots many bullets through a floor trying to hit the person under the floor. A man shows huge, jagged scars on his chest and abdomen. A man has bumps and stitches on his head and face. A boy with oxygen tubes on his nose lies on a stretcher after a reaction to taking Crystal Meth. We see a man in a hospital with stitches on his face and bandages on his torso. A man is surrounded by police officers with their guns drawn. People threaten each other in many scenes. We hear that a man died in a car accident. A sheriff and deputy completely destroy a man's truck, tearing it up with a chainsaw, a crow bar, etc. A truck blows up and we see it in flames. A sheriff breaks the tail lights of a car with a large piece of wood. A sheriff pretends to draw his pistol on a man. Men play football, shoving each other around, knocking each other down, one man is hit in the back with a football, one man is knocked hard in the leg (he has a bad knee), and one man is clotheslined.
