Fifty years of Bond. That makes me feel old, as I reflect on my first cinematic Bond experience, ‘The Spy Who Loved Me.’ The various elements subject to censorship have been relatively consistent over the series.  As for the newest release, the general consensus is you need to be at least 13 years old to see this film, with Ontario and British Columbia being exceptions. As always, the MPAA notes sexuality in the advisory.
