might be in black and white kinda but it isnt the average superhero movie. bloody and kinda of brutal. like the part when the octopus explodes and his rib flies into the wall and a chunk of meat falls off the rib. pretty bad sexuality. and violent gunwise. but what the hell!!!! it was a great movie i loved it!!!!!
