  • A man is stabbed in the back, no blood.
  • A man's many scarred over blade wounds suddenly burst open as new, blood pours out of them, the man is covered in blood.
  • In yet another fight between swordsmen, both are repeatedly and brutally stabbed and sliced over and over, one man is seen with a dozen blades sticking out of him, he graphically pulls all the blades out of him, the sound effects are especially brutal.

  • In a very long action seen, 156 people (exact count) are killed by being slashed, stabbed, or otherwise butchered by bladed weapons. With a fairly large amount of blood with each kill. Bodies cover the ground and blood is in pools.

  • A man falls down a waterfall, hits a rock, and explodes into a cloud of blood.
  • During another sword fight, men slash and stab each other as they slip around on other people's blood. At this point there is blood literally everywhere.

  • A character is seen smoking what can only be opium from a pipe.
  • A character is smoking what seems to be opium from a pipe.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The entire movie is extremely intense, with very few calm moments. Hundreds of people die in very violent ways.
  • The First 10 minute Fight scene and the closing 20 minute fight scene are the heaviest and incredibly graphic scenes with the body count sky rocketing.
  • In some ways, this is just as (if not more) heavy than Batoru rowaiaru (2000).
  • A very gruesome movie, but nowhere near Takashi Miike's most.
  • Many people fight and die near the end of the movie.
  • The implied rape and attempted rape scenes are disturbing.
  • The main character fights in many battles and is often injured.
  • The main characters are in danger during much of the film.
