MPAA Adjusts Rating Description for "Deathly Hallows: Part 1"
October 27, 2010, 05:01 AM
As you may recall, the MPAA rated "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" as PG-13 for "sequences of intense action violence and frightening imagery." They have since amended their reasoning for giving "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" a PG-13 rating by adding "brief sensuality."
"Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be released November 19th.
Not sure the PG-13 rating really means a darn thing. Valeria-Johanna has the right idea if you are unsure see it first then decide it is okay for the kids to see, rather than relying on anyones rating system.
Probably the locket scene. i’m in the US, so my copy isnt as accurate as some others may be. they change a lot when they americanize some things. i mean, look at anime for example!
obviously they could’ve easily gone all out on the action and darkness and even language and earned themselves an R rating, but first of all…it’s Harry Potter and the majority of the audience is younger kids…2nd, JK Rowling most likely wouldn’t let them do that
Yeah.. it might be the locket scene… and might be the battle scenes…. but I think, other children would complain about it, since they also love harry potter….
Come on people, Harry Potter is associated with children, so it makes sense that for the parents who might not be aware of the more “adult” sexual tension and scenes that exist in the book will be in the movie as well. I personally am not letting my eight year old see these films, b/c I know what is in them. Granted he won’t like the “kissing” stuff anyway, but still this is one film that will wait a year or two for him to see until he’s a bit more mature. JMO as a parent of young kids. That is the job of the MPAA to warn parents of children what is in the films…
