VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - There are several full-scale sword battles, and a few one-on-one sword fights. The violence is not explicitly graphic, but there are the expected stabbings, pummelings, etc. A man is beaten to death by a mob (some blood visible on his face). A man is impaled upon a sharp piece of wood. He suffers visibly, and the gaping chest wound is shown. A man is shot through the chest with an arrow. A man is towed through a forest by a flying dragon and smacks into several trees. He is also hit by the dragon's tail. The skeletal remains of a man's arm (with some flesh still remaining) is caught between the dragon's teeth. A man is stabbed in the shoulder. The dragon smacks into a shallow pool headfirst. A man is shot clean through with a large, harp projectile. A man is killed by a runaway weapons launcher. A woman kills a man with a battle-axe (though the impact happens just off-screen). Several men are knocked off horses by a large log swung from ropes. A man kills his own mother (off-screen).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
