Jack Reacher Trimmed For UK 12A Certificate

The BBFC have classified Christopher McQuarrie‘s Jack Reacher and the final result is a 12a rating for a film cut by 2 seconds.

Or rather, the BBFC have reclassified the film. They originally handed Paramount Pictures a 15 certificate for the full, intact movie. The cuts came when the studio decided that the ‘offending material’ was less important than the patronage of those aged 14 years old and under.

Or rather, the money spent on tickets for those aged 14 years old and under.

According to the extended classification information, the material removed was:

a woman being suffocated by a man and a man being hit over the head with a rock.

It’s not clear how those two seconds of footage were unsuitable for under 15s but I guess I’ll have to wait for the DVD or Blu-ray release to find out.

Incidentally, the film now comes in at 130 minutes and 12 seconds. Despite the cuts I still look forward to every frame of what remains, and then onwards to seeing the film that the director actually delivered once commerce allows.
