The Hard R Rating
The fact that so many people are petitioning for a PG-13 version of Deadpool goes to show just how hyped everybody is for this movie. Let’s face it though, if you want to character justice you have to push for the hard R rating.
Deadpool is notorious for his gratuitous violence, filthy mouth and who-gives-a-damn attitude in the face of adversity, all of which would be completely lost if the movie were toned down to accommodate younger views. It goes without saying that adapting this as anything other than R rated flick would have done a disservice to the very essence of the character.
Kudos for the filmmaker’s for sticking to their guns and playing their part in bringing the Merc with the Mouth to life.
