Rating of Spectre
The movie Spectre, which was rated 12A, received 40 complaints for its violent scenes. The British Board of Film Certification received the most number of complaints for the movie Spectre.
Reasons of Complain
The new Bond movie had a battling criminal syndicate. The distributor of the movie has questioned that how could the movie manage to get a 12A ranking.
BBFC gives its explanations
BBFC in its annual report gives its explanation to the distributors for rating Craig’s movie a 12A.
“One scene involving an eye-gouging was slightly too strong for the company’s preferred 12A classification. We therefore suggested reductions to this scene. What remains in the classified version of the scene is a brief implication of what is happening, with only limited visual detail.”
Another scene showing the bloody after effect of a suicide was similarly reduced. The BBFC further said that a torture scene in the movie which as it lacked details managed to remain a part of the movie under the 12A rating.
Kingsman: The Secret Service starring Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton and Michael Caine, generated 38 complaints. This 15 rated movie received complaints particularly due to a fight scene in the church. U-rated animated comedy Minions received 16 complaints. The complain was mainly based on a scene set in a medieval-style torture dungeon. In the movie Minions the scene takes place in an unrealistic, comic and slapstick manner, which makes the scene light and familiar for the young generations. The realistic risk of harmful imitation is very low in the movie
