There's a lot of highly praised movies I've skipped because I knew they'd be too violent for me - The Patriot for instance, or Braveheart.

Take away the violence in either, and you have taken away the story as well.

I will admit that I saw both of those movies, yes I did see them edited. Then to see the difference I saw the original Braveheart. Again I will admit that I like the edited one better.
I didn't feel like I missed the story. They are such powerful movies
I am not going to get on a biased rampage promoting edited movies but I enjoyed them.

Surely the violence can be shown less explicitly - someone is shot and dies - I would rather not see his head explode - but the story is still there.
