My overall opinion: I did not find the violence to be too much or any worse than I was expecting, having read the books several times. However, according to this site, the violence is worse than on most PG-13 movies. Just saying. I enjoyed this one at least as much as I enjoyed "The Fellowship of the Rings" and recommend it highly! A word of warning: read the books a few a times first. :) Great movie! I hope to read the movie guide books and see the last one soon! Oh, and Gollum made an appearance in this one at long last. I (ahem) kind of like him. Sometimes he's quite funny and even a little cute! Totally a CG character, which is amazing.
Okay, now you really think I'm crazy, don't you!
