Violence
There are frequent scenes of intense battle violence between large armies, including sword fights, cavalry charges, the use of projectile weapons from bows and catapults, and various fantastical creatures such as trolls. While there are frequent moments in which characters are stabbed or slashed, horses are shot or trampled on, and characters are crushed by falling masonry, sight of blood and injury detail is limited throughout. In one sequence a man is set on fire, but this is not shown in detail. In another scene a character's finger is bitten off, with subsequent sight of blood on his hand but no graphic detail. There is also a scene of strangulation in which a character is killed.
Threat and horror
Frequent scenes of moderate threat and horror include characters being pursued and attacked by a giant spider, severed heads being catapulted into a city, characters experiencing nightmarish visions, and a man attempting to burn his son alive on a funeral pyre. There are also scenes involving ghosts, which take the form of translucent decaying corpses, but they ultimately present no threat to the protagonists.
