What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Quick and the Dead is filled with Western-style violence in the form of shoot-outs, gun and rifle play, fistfights, knife fights, and hangings. There also is a scene in which the rape of a young girl by an older man is strongly implied, and, in a flashback sequence, a young girl is forced to shoot a gun at her father, who is on the verge of being hung by bandits, and accidentally kills him. Although the general violence and mayhem isn't much different from classic Westerns, this movie does not shy away from showing, for instance, the hollow space left in the head after a bullet blasts through it. There is profanity ("chickens--t") and drinking and smoking. Families with older teens who enjoy Westerns will get a kick out of how this movie both celebrates and plays with the conventions and tropes of the genre.
