yes, it is violent.
war is violent. it's about war.
this movie shows that every single person who dies in war, is someone's child.
it speaks to the causes and influences of war: the religion of a single god, or a group of "wisemen".., the laws, the pride, the fear, the futility, the propaganda, the politics of it, and how, when it seems done; it goes on.
I highly recommend seeing this film. A few I invited said they don't do violent films & they had heard this is "very violent". I respect that; I do not indulge in violent entertainment wontenly myself. However, I still encourage you to consider seeing this. It tells a good story, and one we're living, whether we admit to this or not.
Yes it is violent, but we can't pretend war : the wars we're in, are not.
