Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Movie Review


Just how graphic are the thrills in Once Upon
a Time in Hollywood? “Actors are required do a lot of dangerous stuff.” Well, this is a Quentin Tarantino film, so
you know it won’t hold anything back. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt headline this
comical but intense crime story, set in 1969 Los Angeles, about an aging actor,
his stuntman, and an infamous cult. True to Tarantino form, the violence can be
pretty shocking. There are scenes of a woman’s face being smashed
repeatedly against a wall, blood spurts, guns, and vicious dog attacks,
plus characters getting burned by a flamethrower. “Burn you nazi bastards!” [laughs] The language is equally extreme, meaning tons
of F-bombs, S-words, and everything in between. As for other iffy stuff, expect some crude
sex talk and women in revealing outfits, as well as frequent drinking, smoking, and
a little drug use. Common Sense says Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
is OK for teens 17 and up. To read our full review and tell us what you
