U, PG or 12 in the CIVILISED world- R in the USA
Nothing can prove just how scary and depraved are American cultural values than the rating given to this film in the USA.
Many nations rate this film U, for heaven's sake, while the USA gives this film the exact same rating as vile, evil torture porn like 'Hostel'.
The US war machine, the largest war machine in Human History, with a budget that significantly increase every year, is the effective fist projecting US cultural thinking across the rest of our planet. Do we want a people that think that non-sexual nudity is 'worse' than allowing children to see graphic scenes of women being tortured to death enabling a hyper aggressive military force dedicated to exterminating all that 'oppose' the USA on our Earth?
America, alongside The Ukraine, has the greatest number of serial killers per one million of population than any other country. The 'land of the free' is the land where an extraordinary number of people dedicate themselves to preying on other Humans in the most elaborate and depraved crimes. And yet every American is trained from the earliest age to chant "our culture is the best there can be- America is no.1 and always will be".
The recent remake of 'Robocop' boasts a sequence showing US robotic death squads invading Iran, and unlike the original version, the remake makes it clear that such US war crimes would be a GOOD thing. Google is currently engaged in a massive investment to make such robotic war machines viable- buying up every company currently involved in the field of military robot design.
When the German people went collectively mad, they did us the favour of promoting such unsubtle evil, that every decent person realised the Nazis would have to be dealt with. The USA is vastly better at PR, and sugar coats its national psychopathy to such a degree, that the rest of the world is constantly giving America the 'benefit of the doubt'.
This wasn't so dangerous, when the US public were largely anti-war in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s. However, the carefully crafted events of 9/11 (as 'requested' in the infamous PNAC document) allowed the general population of the USA to be coerced into a continuous pro-war position.
Little things, like the R-rating given to this film, should be giving us the worst nightmares, because of the implications.
