Added DiffLines:

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 5, primarily due to the brutality of the acts of violence, although there is a fair amount of blood. A thug is impaled by a thrown machete (some blood), a couple of goons are smashed by a giant barrel rolling towards them (with its bloody aftermath briefly shown), and [[spoiler:Joe/The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood)]] is cruelly beaten by the bad guys.
