    Viewers who sit through Exit Wounds should at least do themselves the favor of staying for the end credits, which feature some truly funny off-color banter between Anderson and Arnold on the latter's ostensible talkshow.

    Los Angeles Times Gene Seymour

    It's a pastiche of pulpy elements culled from all the "Dirty Harry" movies you can think of.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    In its low grade way, this blithely brutal cops and drugs thriller is an efficient hot wire entertainment.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Pause for kids 16 & under

Very violent honest-cop corruption story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the movie is very violent, with graphic injuries and the death of at least one major character. There is also the obligatory nightclub scene with erotic topless dancers smearing something all over each other. Characters use strong language and there is even stronger language in the soundtrack, including repeated use of the n-word.

  • Families can talk about real-life cases of police corruption and the temptations presented to people who risk their lives for low pay and little thanks. They may also want to talk about how we decide whom we will trust, and what happens when that trust is violated, and about "anger management" and how it works.
