I confess that a) I have not seen Suicide Squad, b) the trailer left me with no desire to see it, and c) I still can’t remember which comic characters are Marvel and which are DC, let alone what they did in their last movie. That said, I did find Deadpool a guilty pleasure, so maybe this would be fun. Meanwhile, let’s look at the ratings.
It’s PG across Canada, except Quebec, but there is no PG there, so this is as consistent as we can get. All agree it’s not for young children, and language and violence are the concerns. Both within and outside Canada, agencies aren’t sure whether there is any sexually suggestive content. South of the border the rating is up a notch, as usual.
Other agencies are split, with some recommending no children (Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa), some requiring adult accompaniment for younger children (Ireland, Brazil), and some prohibiting young children (United Kingdom, New Zealand). Hong Kong offers two versions, both with the same rating, but one apparently removes the coarse language.
Hi, I appreciate the work you do! I see that there isn’t any South American classification authority in your reviews. Are you interested in putting information from Brazil’s (I am from there)? I could help translating it and explaining the rules.
Thanks. I’d be happy to add Brazil’s rating – you can let me know what it is, and the meaning, in a comment.
Classification: 12 – Not recommended for under twelve’s (meaning children under twelve years-old can watch the movie only if accompanied by their parents)
