Nerd yourself dude.  The reason I was disappointed with the ending is because I wasn't trying to figure it out, I just knew it had to happen.  I'm not saying that it's so incredibly predictable.  Most people probably won't see it.  I'm just saying I did, and my expereince was not as pleasant as a result.
I should clarify something: When I said the thing about the "this movie is too predictable" complaint blah blah blah, I wasn't referring to this movie and you specifically, but in general.

Then I take back my horribly offensive and well thought out insult of "nerd yourself".

No more violent than Del Toro's other movies. Which is pretty violent.

It's really very violent. The main villain is a captain in Spain's fascist army and he spends most of the movie trying to put down a rebellion, that should give you a good idea of how violent it is.

I'm trying to to give away too much... but expect to see blood, death, disfiguration and dismemberment. Sin city type violence, I guess, but not as much of it.

I would add that it's more graphic than Sin City because it's not b/w manipulated images.  And I've had friends on both sides of the "pointless violence" issue.  It comes down to personal opinion on the matter.

If violence is the point, can the violence really be pointless?

Interesting little paradox.

Or "Gratuitous violence," if you will.
