Additional Notes: Many "artistic" reviewers have commented on the high levels of graphic violence in this film. As an example, Peter Howell of the Toronto Star says, "It's a total-immersion battle experience for eaters of red meat, worshippers of the male physique and lovers of extreme violence... If you wince at the sight of skewered bodies and decapitated skulls, then your money is better spent on a repeat screening of An Inconvenient Truth."
