UK cinemagoers left questioning whether new film should have higher certificate

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has explained its decision to give 自殺分隊 a 15 age rating following confusion from cinemagoers.

Those who went to see ジェームズ・ガン’s new DC film in the UK were left surprised by the violent content, with many believing it should have been given an 18 評価.

Social media over the weekend was filled with messages from people questioning the BBFC’s decision, with one audience member calling 自殺分隊 “one of the goriest films I’ve seen in years” and “literally disgusting in places”.

に応答して 独立者のコメントのリクエスト, the BBFC said: “Whilst comparatively more violent than the last film, the violence is mitigated by the film’s humour and the action-packed fantasy context.”

It said that the “the violence and gore were sufficiently mitigated” due to “the focus on action within a comic, fantastic, superhero context”.

自殺分隊 wasn’t edited in any way to achieve the 15 証明書.

"で 15, our Classification Guidelines state that ‘violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury’,” the BBFC added.

Its classification guidelines are based on “large scale public opinion”, which is reassessed every four to five years in studies conducted on more 10,000 人. This last occurred in 2019.

Films with an 18 certificate tend to not perform as well at the box office, meaning studios generally try and tailor big-budget releases to conform to lower age rating criteria.

The highest-grossing 18-certificate film is フィフティシェイズオブグレイ, which amassed box office takings of $569.7m (£409.6m) when it was released in 2015.
