There are several combat sequences in this movie, but most of them are neither brutal nor bloody. Mostly hand-to-hand combat, fist fights, mild kung-fu fights, and some use of varied weapons too (especially sword fighting). Some specific deaths, however, are bloody.

A man has a hatchet thrown into his face, and we can see it clearly hit him, even though we only see it from behind and briefly. Some blood sprays.

Two men's throats are cut and blood squirts briefly (no graphic wound shown).

A man is stabbed in the eye and dies, blood trickles. This is the most disturbing scene, although we do not see the actual stabbing nor the bloody wound, as they are covered by the killer's hand.
