John Wick 2 Only Censored in UK Cinemas

Cuts for the BBFC 15 Rating

While John Wick: Chapter Two got its “R” rating (for strong violence throughout, some language and brief nudity) by the MPAA without any censorship necessary, the UK cinemagoers won’t be so lucky. The action thriller was rated “15” by the BBFC due to the following reasoning: strong violence, gory images, suicide scene, language.

As it turns out, teenagers in the UK are only allowed into the screenings because the violence has been reduced by the distributor Warner Bros. in order to avoid the BBFC 18 rating, which would have been available for the uncut version. The BBFC database has the following entry:

Company chose to reduce bloody injury detail in a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 18 classification was available.

23 seconds had to be removed in order to get the lower rating and after Warner Bros. submitted the film in that form, the BBFC stood by its word. We’ll see what that means for the DVD and Blu-ray that come out in a few months. Before that, John Wick: Chapter Two starts in UK cinemas on February 17th, 2017.
