  • Is the new Papillon more violent than the original?

  • "You're under arrest for the murder of Roland Legrande."

  • You better believe it.

  • In this intense prison remake, a wrongly convicted man serving time in an island jail refuses

  • to be broken or stop trying to escape.

  • "There's no way off."

  • "There's always a way."

  • The violence here is off the charts.

  • We're talking brutal and bloody realistic fistfights, stabbings, and beatings.

  • Plus there's an attempted rape, a disembowelment, and a beheading.

  • The swearing is constant throughout, too, with plenty of F-bombs and the S-word.

  • For even more iffy stuff, expect to see lots of naked men and women,

  • including brief male frontal nudity.

  • "If I ever got out, I'm going to live a different kind of life."

  • Common Sense says Papillon is OK for teens 16 and up.
