In an art imitates life, and life imitates art, since violence is part of the reality in our world today, it has become part of the films too. However, those films that show unnecessary violence are guilty of glorifying it. Many films have been banned due to the excessive bloodshed they depict. Movie-goers who are interested in a thrilling film can get their entertainment, but of the art’s sake and for an average movie fan, too much violence is always uncalled for.

Such movies are not suitable for wider audience and for the faint hearted. Here are top 10 most violent movies of all times. If you want to download violent films from internet then should choose any of the movies listed here.

Violence

10. The Passion of the Christ

Directed by Mel Gibson and starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus Christ, this controversial blockbuster is full of blood everywhere with scenes of torture and violence that will take away a viewer’s sleep. It is the highest-grossing Non-English language film of all time.

9. Battle Royale

It is a Japanese action-thriller film based on a novel of the same name by Koushun Takami and it is the last film directed by Kinji Fukasaku. The film is about a boy coping with the passing away of his father, and he gets forced by the government to kill other students. The film faced a large hue and cry due to its content full of violence. However, it is one of Japan’s highest-grossing films ever.

8. Kill Bill

Quentin Tarantino is known for violence in his movies, which is most of the time uncalled for and exaggerated. If one that is a signature mark of the director, it is this movie. Starring Uma Thurman as the man lead, the film is homage to Hong Kong martial arts films. Though the fighting scenes have been brilliantly choreographed, but the violence that comes along with it makes the film an uneasy one to digest.

7. The Wild Bunch

The film is directed by Sam Peckinpah and stars William Holden and Ernest Borgnine as the main leads, who are outlaws trying to get their score settled. The film depicts a lot of gun violence and despite this it is still considered one of the best Hollywood Western movies and is a classic, receiving a ranking in several best films lists.

6. Hostel

The Dutch were really disappointed to see their tourist-attractive country portrayed in such a negative light by the Hollywood, which is typical of the American film industry, and for this reason the film was received poorly in the country. The film takes place in Amsterdam with a group of travelers unwitting getting in trouble with gore. Thus the film is full of blood and violence in almost every scene.

5. A Clockwork Orange

Stanley Kubrick’s films are a classic in every which way and despite all the violence shown in this movie, the film is still ranked as one of the best flicks ever made. It shows a sociopath and his gang doing all the dirty work one can possibly imagine, with torture and violence as the film’s main themes.

4. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The film is considered a classic in the slasher film genre and inspired many other films subsequently. Its main character, Leatherface, became the ultimate bogeyman. Since its original release, the film has been followed by sequels and a remake, none of which came close to the violence shown in this 1974 version.

3. Reservoir Dogs

Another one of Quentin Tarantino’s most violent films, it covers the story of a diamond heist, with Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, and others as its main cast. It is considered one of the greatest independent films of all time, despite it being laden with violence. However, the film has been received really well by the critics.

2. Saw

There are many serial killer movies and this one comes with a uniquely twisted mindset of a killer that plays odd and deadly games with his victims. The film is full of gore and blood all around and even for a fan with a taste of horror and thriller flicks, it is a bit edgy. It was released a decade ago but this movie is still downloaded by hundreds of people daily which means how much people love violent movies.

1. Django Unchained

Another controversially violent film from Quentin Tarantino, it tells the story of a bounty hunter and slave both out to get what they want and during that whole process both receive and perpetrate violence. This movie earned 4 times more than its actual budget. It was one of the most watched movies of the last year. The plot of this movie makes it world’s most violent movie of all time.

    This list is really very pedestrian. Granted each movie on it has some serious violence, but whoever compiled it has not expanded beyond what can be considered “popular” films. Any number of zombie films or martial arts action movies could easily replace every title on this list. How about under dog indie movies like ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’, or Uwe Boll’s ‘Rampage’? I think you can come up with a better Top 10 “Most Violent” list…
