Anti-American Tripe

Weak storyline. The main character drinks, and drinks, and drinks, and can't function without drinking. The "f" bomb is there about 4 times, mostly in subtitles. The Soviets are shown to think Americans are immoral due to slavery, women being in the home, and blacks not drinking from the water fountain while Soviets are actually for freedom. The plot jumps around. The acting is mediocre at best. There are a few extremely gruesome scenes, like when a lady's neck is cracked and she's later seen crammed in a closet with other dead bodies all contorted. There are disconnected references to the Cuba missile crisis. Dumb. At least there's no sex.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
