The Die Hard R-Rating is a Lie

Clickonline writes: "But as other ratings boards around the world have taken a look at the film, the reality of the rating has come to light. It’s pretty clear, in retrospect, that the R rating in the States was little more than a cynical marketing ploy on the part of the studio." (A Good Day to Die Hard, Cinema)

Ummm...even in the argument he states there's four uses of the 'f' word. So yeah, it's an R-rating. It's not a lie, it's just that ratings systems differ.

It's officially been rated 12A in the UK, and to think the original Die Hard was an 18.

This article is bullshit. No research done at all. Its cut for other territories and NOT in the US.

I think it's one of those wait and see things. I'll bet it is an R rating.

The rule is only once use of the F Bomb is allowed...anything more than that in the US grants a R-Rating. I thought it was a real R rating, i might be disappointed
