The Critic reviews George Lucas' notorious Marvel Comics adaptation.

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Duck boobs A condom (without a wrapper) is shown stored in a character's wallet. Some suggestive shots of a woman in her underwear. No nudity. Some intense flirting between characters with dialogue suggesting the possibilty of an interspecies relationship. A scene in a brothel showing people making out only in underwear. No full nudity.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Gun violence includes a lot of references such as "shoot to kill" and "dead or alive". Weapons are frequently mentioned threateningly, occasionally pointed at characters, and a few shots are fired. Duck hunters and hunting are shown. A lot of fantasy/science fiction violence through out, showing people incapacitated and injured through blunt force or with "rays", but without apparent fatalities. There's a bar fight where ice picks are brandished, and another fight in a diner. Characters are kidnapped, manhandled, and dragged. Some injuries are obvious, but not dwelt upon or bloody.

Profanity Reason
There are a few uses of "Hell," "damn," and "dammit." "Piss off" and "Oh my god" are used a couple of times. A couple of slurs are uttered: "jackass" and "jerkoff."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
A duck smokes cigars on occasions. There are some occasional scenes of people drinking in a bar. Beer is consumed socially.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Younger viewers might be frightened by a character's transformation into an evil being, and by some of the creatures from space. Scenes of dangerous driving and dangerous flying could be hair-raising, and result in accidents that would likely cause injury or death, but those consequences aren't shown.
