The Sonic Movie Gets A “PG” Rating

by January 14, 2020 4 comments

The Sonic movie has gotten a rating, courtesy of the MPA Classification and Rating Administration. It has a rating of “PG”, or “Parental Guidance”, a rating given when some material in the movie may not be suitable for children. The reasons given were “action, some violence, rude humor and brief mild language”. The Sonic movie premieres next month.

    what happened to the pg-13 action movie they said we’d get? They said there’d be no focus on humans, but then Tom is a main character. They said it’d be an action movie, but we got a comedy. They said it’d be pg-13, but now it’s pg. what happened to Sonic Adventure the Movie which I was hoping for and that they said we’d get back in in 2013/2014?

    Well, i’m glad its not a G rating movie since this movie is coming out in 31 days. At least now, This movie would be a more suitable rating like the transformers film series.

    Most games like Mario, Pokemon and Zelda has action and violence in there series even so Nintendo is treating there brands and series as kid friendly like SEGA and Sonic Team did the same for Sonic.

      Unlike the ESTB, the MPA is a laughing stock and is no serious bar for determining if a movie has enough action or violence. They rated 1959 Ben Hur G and it has a lot of graphic violence including a man with gaping wound exposing bone and flesh and yet Frozen is PG. Yeah, per the MPAA, the PG rating is so “logical” in particular that it can have from 0 to over a 100 occurrences of profanity. I rely on CommonSenseMedia and the British Board of Film Classification for getting accurate information whenever I need to verify movie content.

    Can’t wait for the scene where Sonic says “oh shit” as he’s running away from Eggman’s missiles
