Suicide Squad rated PG-13 - to the surprise of no one

Suicide Squad may have undergone some late in the game reshoots but they haven't changed the overall tone of the film, it has just been rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

In the wake of Deadpool there were a few rumours that the film was going to be pushing for an R-rating but honestly that was never going to happen - it was already in the can long before Mr. Pool had his way with the box office and it's a stablemate of Batman v Superman and the overall DC cinematic universe.

These are films with massive budgets which have to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, so it was always going to be rated this way.

That said, you can get away with a fair amount with a PG-13 rating these days, especially if you have the might of a major studio behind you. From the trailers so far there's plenty of violent action and the use of some clearly non human enemies which can be sliced and diced without being too disturbing for young eyes.

That doesn't mean we won't see a different cut of the film on home video - Bats v Supes is getting an R-rated cut - but on the big screen at least things are going to be mostly age appropriate.

Now we just have to wait and see if the film lives up to the potential of its early trailers, and hope that it's just a little bit more fun than Batman v Superman. Beause movies are supposed to be entertaining y'all!

Suicide Squad is in cinemas on the 5th of August, 2016.
