    Graphic violence, grisly images, strong sexual content and language?!? Sounds like a great movie to me! One person's trash is another person's treasure :-)

    Stromboli's was great! Movie was the worst for graphic violence, some grisly images, strong sexual content and language.... I cannot even imagine why anyone would want to make such a movie or present such terrible ideas to other deranged minds.

      I too was very surprised.
      I'm pretty mad, (at the promoters), because I'd seen the trailers and read descriptions and those were much softer than the movie, (quite the opposite of how most trailers show "The Highlights")..
      I'm upset that it was less an action-drama movie I'd expect from Ridley Scott and more like a Tarantino shock-flick showcase of torture & kill special-effects by some really twisted characters.
      I know some like this type of flick, but not me. I'm just glad we had a fun dinner beforehand.

      Maybe the trailers had to be tamer due to children seeing them... As the day after my limited amount of sleep, I have become absolutely convinced that the reason actors and actresses of the caliber in that film had to be literally sending a message about the horrors of drug trafficking.

    Have decided to take comfort from what appears to be the message in "The Counselor" of how horribly gruesome the drug world is, especially outside the USA. Showing famous, beautiful, talented people multilated and humilated and literally reduced to trash...presents a very clear picture that the consequences of such association is nothing short of sheer degradation!

    Stromboli's was nice. Slow in getting the food out, but it was pretty good. A good choice for a quick (but not fast food) meal, like right before a movie.
