Several rape references, very violent, and just a bad movie

There is an unmissable and graphic description of little boys being violently abused including being raped by broomsticks. Extremely violent throughout. Several quite disturbing and terrifying characters and images. The film tries to juxtapose the Sheriff of Nottingham with Hitler or Mussolini with its imagery but it is quite wooden and unsubtle about it and glories in cruelty (a finger jammed in a wound, fingers jammed into eyes, kicking chained prisoner etc.) Very large plot holes as well and the only named/speaking female character in the entire movie (apart from one extra) is treated like an accessory and repeatedly threatened with rape.

This title has:

Too much violence
