James Bond - Diamonds are Forever: New UK rating

BBFC raises the rating from PG to 12

The James Bond movie Diamonds are Forever starring Sean Connery came out in 1971 and was shown in UK cinemas with an "A" rating (suitable for minors aged 5 or above, advised (not binding) for minors aged 14 and over). Later, in the 80s, the film got the new "PG" rating for the home video releases since the "12" rating didn't exist when the film was rated. All this time, the BBFC viewed this Bond installment as being suitable even for children under the age of 12.

For the upcoming Blu-ray release (see the overview here), the BBFC rated all Bond movies once more and came to the conclusion to increase the rating for Diamonds are Forever. Instead of "PG", the film is now rated "12".

Responsible for the increase is a scene in which Bond rips off a bikini top off a woman's chest and strangles her with it, a very aggressive use of the word "bitch" and the general treatment of the gay assassins throughout the film.
