Rating: O (R)
NEW YORK (CNS) — The following is a capsule review of a movie recently reviewed by the Office for Film & Broadcasting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Sordid horror sequel in which an FBI agent (Scott Patterson) suspects a police detective (Costas Mandylor) of aiding a sadistic maniac (Tobin Bell) in torturing and killing wrongdoers who have evaded the law. Director David Hackl’s film intersperses justifications of twisted morality with graphic scenes of ghastly mayhem. Frequent bloody violence, including torture and mutilation, much rough and some crude language, and a few uses of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O — morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
