Spiderman UK certificate

Saw a trail for Spiderman on tv last night. Thought I saw it had been rated 12( for strong fantasy violence). Can't see it on the BBFC site. Is it not early to get rated?? and did i see right??? My yougest son is gutted, once again we've been caught out by the 12 rating. I never thought Spidey would be a 12!!

ah well!

If you lived in Ireland parents can bring their children to films rated 15PG. It's a new rating system started about 6 months ago.

I got into 12s when I was 9, especially with parents. Maybe worth a go?

But it's NOT a shame that we don't have the R-rating style system over here, which I'm sure you'd agree with if you'd sat next to the terrified little kiddie some hideous parents took to see The Cell on a rather large screen. I nearly covered his eyes for most of it, and not because it was one of the worst films I've ever seen either.

Cool

That is pretty irresponsible - as The Cell is very disturbing in parts (especially for ickle kiddies).

I had the same problem when I saw Sleepy Hollow in the US.

There were some young kids in there(between 3 and 6 years old) with their parents. You cant help but feel sorry for them, it must have scared the crap out of them when heads started being chopped off all over the place.

To be honest, and TOTALLY selfish, hope it IS a 12.
Just read episode 2 is being cut to give it a pg. Sure Spiderman would be the same...
"Oh no, you cant show him actually HITTING someone, thats violence".

Case of over protecting kids I think.

Even worse, my brother-in-law sat next to one poor man, after the film finished, lights went up and my B.I.L asked the gentlemen if he would allow them to pass, no response - to cut a long story short the old man was pronounced dead at the scene. He'd passed away sometime during the film.

The BBFC do actually have plans to make the 12 rating advisory. It's been tested in some parts of the country. I don't know when that's going to start though.

However I think anyone under 15 should be banned from all weekday performances in termtime and weekend and holiday performances after 6pm. Let the little buggers have their own screenings and spoil them for no one but themselves.

I think cinemas should have a no idiots / morons / brats rule, and you should have to pass a stupidity test to be able to buy tickets in the first place. Mobiles and anyone wearing a shell suit should also be banned outright.

That'd cost you a fortune in DVD's though!

When I went to see the x-men movie the cinema was packed with kids and it made it a lot better as an experience as they all cheered along, although it did make me feel very old, so I guess you shouldnt have much trouble smuggling him in, I have been told that there isnt any strong language in the spiderman movie, but there may be a little bit of bloodshed, anyway I hope he manages to see it somehow.

Which Batman? 'Forever' and 'Robin' are cinematic excrement, but the first two are superb!

"Where does he get those wonderfull toys..."

Well said, Mr Nicholson, who knew that you'd visited Northampton!
