Crank: High Voltage

Written and Directed by: Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor Starring: Jason Statham, Amy Smart, Dwight Yoakam, Efren Ramirez, Art Hsu Rated: R for frenetic strong bloody violence throughout, crude and graphic sexual content, nudity and pervasive language. Parental Notes: To say this film is not appropriate for children is an understatement. Teens will likely enjoy the frenetic action, but parents may find the content problematic.

In Bruges

Written and Directed by: Martin McDonagh Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Colin Farrell, Ralph Fiennes, Clemence Poesy, Jordan Prentice Rated: Rated R for strong bloody violence, pervasive language, and some drug use. Parental Notes: This is not a film for youngsters. The violence in it is graphic in a realistic way rather than a cartoony one, and thus fairly disturbing.

The Fountain

Written and Directed by: Darren Aronofsky Starring: Rachel Weisz, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis Rated: PG-13 for some intense sequences of violent action, some sensuality and language. (edited for re-rating; originally R) Parental notes: This is a reasonable PG-13 film, but because of its philosophical nature it will likely not appeal to preteens.
