"The Corruptor" (R) -- an appropriate title. "The Corruptor" indeed possess properties to corrupt wholesome ethics and righteous morality. So much so that I wouldn't stay for the whole show. I left when a porno shoot session came on screen -- 37 minutes after the first scene. But as proven with other partial viewings, the CAP media analysis model works as well on partial viewings as it does with full viewings. So, I'll give you the numbers after the executive summary.

Murder. Sex. Nudity. Lies. Beatings. Booze. They are all there. Murder by bombing and point-blank up-yours gunfire started the movie. The language typical of R-rated movies flittered out of the speakers like white on rice. Gang warfare and sex murders also jumped out at you. Prostitution, punk brutality, vulgar sexual references and innuendo, and more murders slammed into your eyes within minutes. After several scenes of multiple nudity, beatings by police, and more murders came the pornography photography session. Need I say any more?

    (1) As noted in CAP Special Report-001, "Investigation Area and Scoring Trend," of the six CAP Investigation Areas, Impudence/Hate was the strongest presence in all four movie classifications. It has a strong revelation about the entertainment media.

    (2) The use of the three/four letter word vocabulary without God's name is incorporated into the Impudence/Hate Investigation Area. The use of God's name with or without the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Offense to God Investigation Area. There is no duplication. As required of the Holy Scriptures, unless God's name is used with reverence to His glory and praise, its use is considered in vain, whether literal or euphemistic.

    (3) Only portrayal of successful murder or suicide are incorporated into Murder/Suicide. Presentation of attempts to commit murder or suicide and deaths by police action or war are incorporated into Wanton Violence/Crime.
