  • If it is really good. Sure. Besides, it is all special effects. It isn't real. A good example would be Eastern Promises. +5
  • Absolutely! Sorry to say I'm a blood-thirsty little git so violence doesnt 'turn me off' at all.
  • It bores me to tears Rosie. It turns me off so much I turn the movie off.
  • I can enjoy almost any amount of violence in a movie if it is conducive to the story line. If the violence is irrelevant and unnecessary though, I'm turned off.
  • A good bit and could keep me from buying it or watching it again.
  • The more violence the better, now, I hate watching Women being raped, even if it is just a movie, It disturbs me.
  • I don't have a problem with violence in movies, gratuitous or otherwise.
  • I don't like violence. Even a little bit, really. It disturbs me. So I doubt I'd enjoy a film that was extremely violent.
  • Violent movies and video games don't bother me in the slightest. I was raised on them, and I turned out perfectly fine. I still like movies if they are violent as long as the acting or story is good.
  • Yes I am, and violence doesn't turn me off at all, as long as there is also a story-line too.
  • Senseless violence turns me off. If the violence is a part of the story, then I have no problem with it.
  • i like a godd gritty violent epic as well as other movies it depends what mood i'm in.Last night i watched platoon.
  • I like violence. I enjoy gore. I've seen so many things that I rarely get shocked anymore. In fact, I look for a movie that can shock me with it's content.
  • if it's in context with the story then anything goes but if it's gratuitous for the sake of it then it turns me off
  • There is plenty of ugly violence in the world I don't feed on it for entertainment so if it is truthfully depicted I will tolerate a whole lot more.
  • No, if there is enough violence, I turn the movie off, or leave the theatre. I've done it lots of times. Sometimes a violent scene has to be there. But too often it's just too much for me. I much rather be laughing than be grossed out.
  • I like movie violence, the more, the better, despite the acting.
  • I like violence in movies. Pulp Fiction is one of my favorite movies. A movie can be based on violence for the most part and that's good with me. A good story is also a must.
  • I have a high tolerance for movie violence. I can usually enjoy it so long as I'm watching it by myself, and am not having to worry about how the other people in the room are reacting to the movie. That said, I can tire of violence done for the sake of pushing the envelope... shocking in order to shock is never shocking.
  • They don't bother me, not that I would ever recommend them to kids, but when my kids were little, we used to watch "R" rated movies, and had them turn away (and they did, or they'd never be able to watch those movies) when certain scenes we didn't want them to see (usually sex or nudity) came on. I pointed out the special effects, stunts, etc., and they KNEW they were only movies. I also watched quite a few "making of" movies back then, with them, so they could see how it was done. The ones that bother me are those that are not only violent, but true stories. (And yet, I can watch "Trauma, Life in the ER", CSI, the cop-chase and capture videos, etc. without any problem. Again, though, the TRUE stories affect me more than any other.) Yep... Not only will I enjoy it, but I may want to watch it again, so I can see more of how it was done. Saw 1-4 were fantastic! ;-)
  • For me violence will always overpower good acting and story line.
  • Ive never had anything turn me off except for the hills have eyes.... When they raped the woman, shot the baby, killed the mom...and just played on a persons emotions, I thought it was pretty sick. It wasnt gross like COOL gross, it was just twisted sick gross. I shut the movie off and never finished watchin it. only movie of all time I have ever shut off...
  • I loved "no country for old men" (except for the ending) it had a lot of violence good acting and a good storyline, Javier Bardem won an academy award for his role!
  • there are a few acclaimed movies that I enjoy and are violent. A few come to mind, but there are a lot more... 1. Scar Face 2. Se7en 3. Fight Club I consider those pretty violent
  • It is not that I enjoy violence, but if it is an honest depiction of true events, I have no qualms with it. Violence, unfortunately, is a true depiction of our sinful world. I do think, however, that violence for the sake of entertainment, is grossly over done, and certainly does not edify our culture.
  • i knew the difference between real and fantasy violence before i knew how to read. although i abhor real violence, fantasy violence is fine with me. some of my favorite movies include the star wars trilogies, conan the barbarian, the terminator, Rambo: first blood, and one of the greatest fantasy movies ever made "the sword and the sorcerer"
  • Yes, I am able to enjoy a violent movie, unless the violence overpowers the plot and acting. If the violence is gratuitous with the plot as an afterthought, it bothers me. Otherwise, I don't think violence detracts from good acting, writing, etc.
  • Yes. Guilty as charged. But the storyline absolutely must justify the violence-- which can often be a tough sell. So many storylines are written just to glorify the violence that it is hard to find a quality movie that is not gratuitous in its violent depictions.
  • It depends use violence to make a movie more dramatic but don't go overboard and make the movie only appeal with violence........ SPL/Killzone is a perfect example of a great storyline with alot of violence but its done right
  • I agree with the poster who said the story line must justify the violence. Gore for gores sake is just bad story telling. There is something else that I don't care for in movies and that is the cleansing of violence. There was a tv show in the 80's called The A Team. I wouldn't allow my children to watch it. Why? Because of the unrealistic depiction of violence. There were shots and the bad guys were rounded up. No blood, no pain...none of the real results of that sort of action were shown.
  • I think of many of director Michael Haneke's movies -- especially his original 1997 " Funny Games " ( I didn't see his recent American remake of his own film ). Haneke's films are incredibly uncomfortable and disturbing but very, very little -- if any -- violence is shown on screen. Sort of imagine Hitchcock on speed. I truly believe Haneke can be addressed in the same caliber as Hitchcock. In short, as disturbing as I find Haneke's films, as a viewer, I know I am watching a master at his craft, and, in that, I can find enjoyment of a very different kind. +5
  • Hmm...I just watched Kill Bill last night with my boyfriend. I had never seen it before. It seems to be a movie where it's overly violent. I'm not thrilled about people's limbs being cut off and blood squirting out like a fountain. It's not really my kind of movie to tell the truth.
  • Actually; I kind of enjoy VIOLENCE, Blood, 'n Guts in a movie ... kind of takes the hum drum existance away for awhile .. +5
  • If the violence is pertinent to the story I can stomach it. But films like the Saw series and hostel just made me queasy.The gore was hard to watch and really made no sense. It was just how gruesome can we make someone suffer. Violent films such as Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction had a way of incorporating the violence with the story.
