It’s Official: ‘Avatar’ Has PG-13 Rating

Will you be okay with this rating?

Well, by now you probably have noticed that my prediction (I know, I aim high, right?) for “Avatar” getting a PG-13 rating wound up being true. In case you didn’t:


We will have the pleasure of sharing the auditorium with any kid over 13 without the need of a parent (as if the parents being there helps all that much).

Again though, we shouldn’t flip out and feel that we are only being given a water colored version of a vivid picture. No, PG-13 has been given increasing lenience over the years by the shady MPAA and we have “The Dark Knight” as a shining example of that rating, among others (ahem, “Drag Me To Hell”).

What exactly did James Cameron’s newest and most expensive epic yet get the PG-13 rating for? According to the film’s IMDB page, “intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking”.

Must have been that damn smoking that kept it from getting the PG rating. Man those MPAA guys are nitpickers.

Sarcasm aside, let’s hope that Cameron’s vision is just as good as his other marquee science fiction films: “Aliens”, “The Terminator”, “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”.

I mention those films to remind people (mainly the critics of the unreleased film) that the man knows how to create a great film and an even better franchise– recent missteps out of his hands aside.

Look for the Na’vi and other natives of the colorful world of Pandora to invade US theaters nationwide in 3-D on December 18.
