I'd say the violence was rather different from what you'd see in mainstream movies. It was perhaps the same amount
, but not the same sort
First, it was neither humorous, nor were its effects understated, as normally tends to be. Second, the context intensified it all greatly. Most of all because of the Capitan character and his frightening, cynical sadism, but also considering that the protagoist was only a little child.
SPOILER: That said, the clear view of humanoid fairies having their heads bitten/torn off by the Pale Man didn't make anything better. Normal sort of violence? Not for me.
