DH4 officially PG13

Jun. 13, 2007by:

There were some who were still holding on to a glimmer of hope that it wouldn't happen but, alas, dear schmoes, it has. Bruce Willis' upcoming fourth and presumably final hurrah as terrorist obliterator John McClane, LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, has been given a PG-13 rating, as per the notice on the film's official site. It seems McClane is intent on living free but is only willing to die with the minimum amount of hard cursing and violence suitable for those thirteen years or younger. Click on McClane's brooding stare to see the PG-13 Stamp of Doom live on the site. Thanks to Ryan and Iamnotyous for the heads up.

Live Free or Die Hard

Extra Tidbit: The film's French name is DIE HARD 4.0: RETURN TO HELL. Huh?

skynet, its not like the mmpa rates all movies compared to one another. They dont sit around and say "Shit this movie is more violent than Harry Potter, it has to be R or the system makes no sense!"
A movie can be very violent and not get an R as long as it doesnt have visible graphic violence or something.

I am so infuriated it's beyond words.

This is the worst thing the DH:4 team could have done to it's fans.

Hate when they screw w/ sequels ratings!

I can't believe that the studios are as big as a sellout as they are. It pisses me off that they are willing to screw w/one of the best frieking lines in Movie History, so they can let ignorant know-it-all little 13 year olds (I know I was at that age) to go see this movie! That means they probably haven't seen the original or don't know how to appreciate it! But thank god for the most hated rating that the damn MPAA could have created so that not even high schoolers can go see movies they

That means they probably haven't seen the original or don't know how to appreciate it! But thank god for the most hated rating that the damn MPAA could have created so that not even high schoolers can go see movies they don't understand! God this is practically sacrilege for movies. I was glad to hear that Bruce Willis which the original movie made him a star was pissed about the rating change as well! That screws everything I love about movies and how they are becoming dumber and dumber and yet people are so stupid these days especially us Americans (Can we say "Wild Hogs" Box office is $244 million worlwide!) they are. It pisses me off that they are willing to screw w/one of the best frieking lines in Movie History! Yes that line.(Yipee-ki-a-Mother-f#$ker) Can he even say it now? But thank god for the most hated rating that the damn MPAA could have created so that not even high schoolers can go see movies they don't understand! God this is practically sacrilege for movies. You can tell it angers a lot of people with all the posts here. Even w/ all the ignorant little tweens and teens that now infest this site, I still consider most of the people that visit this site more of the intelligent of the movie fans. It sure puts the piece of crap AICN site to embarassing shame. I'm ashamed that people sell-out so easily these days, they are going to lose a lot of fans w/this really poor move.
I will have nothing to do w/ this. Boo Fox! Oh the seeds we sow.

DO NOT SEE IT

Thanks for the credit Omar. You never forget, I respect that. And as for Live Free or Die SOFT, Please.. everyone that is against this.. just don't see it. Now I know it will still do great in the box office, but please dont see it cut. Even if you get the idea of: "but its Die Hard...." Don't do it.

My geek request is over with now.

Fuck this shit!!!

Those who think Die Hard 4 will be OK with a PG-13 rating are just plain delusional! Remember how Aliens VS. Predator went??? Yea that didn't go so well!

Anyways, Die Hard 4 is dead to me and I am not definitely going to be in line to see this neutered shit.

Yeah it sucks...

...but you know what, it's still Die Hard. And the "Sexual Situation" is probably
"the line" since that would be considered used in a sexual way. The MPAA considered "motherf...." to be a "Sexual Sitation" as stupid as that sounds. PG-13 is different than it was years ago, and this will definitely be action packed and have lots of foul language. Just give it a chance.

I've never seen so much bozz about a movie being rated PG-13. Everyone should calm down and see the movie first before they have a heart attack.

What the fuck does it matter? Hell, man, Willis saw the film and he said its just as good as the original, so who cares if a few curses go? So long as there's plenty of action, I don't give a good goddamn about the rating!

die hard... with an adolescent

obviously this is just an opinion, but Id rather see it as rated R, so that it would have the freedom to be more raw, bloody, and outrageous. Plus it would keep unaccompanied teens out of the theater. Hopefully it won't affect the final product too much. I agree though, Fuck the MPAA ratings!

As long as Willis has witty one liners and there are great action scenes, then I see no problem. Besides, remember the last time Bruce Willis played a cop? It was a really gritty action drama and got (deservedly) good reviews despite the ok box office and it was called 16 Blocks. Yet, what rating did it get? Exactly. I'll just take the "wait and see" approach although I'll definitely see this on a weekday to avoid the "eMpTyV" crowd.

The PG rating for F4 on the other hand...that's a

oh my god

people grow up. It is just a rating. Patriot Games was rated R and when it's sequel Clear and present Danger was released it was rate pg-13. In my opinion Clear and present danger was still dang good with that rating. let's wait and see before we start hating on a movie we have yet to see.

Dear Fox...

I understand it is possible to make a good PG-13 action movie. Just don't call it 'Die Hard', you stupid fucking cunts.

Rated R post!

Attention all boneheads: A PG-13 rating matters, this is Die Hard. This is not an ordinary movie, this is fucking Die Hard.

Maybe if it was any other action movie, you could say the rating doesn't matter... but, this is fucking Die Hard - well, it was.

hey, i wanted to hear McClane's catch phrase too, but the way I look at it is this: it will be an action-packed movie for sure and I'm not gonna miss that experience on the big screen. I'll wait for the director's cut to buy, but I'll definitely be seeing it in theaters.

Disappointment

I realize that it is just a rating, but the difference between PG-13 and R makes for a different movie-going experience. You know how many obnoxious junior high kids are excited right now because they get to legally partake in this thrill ride? Every summer I anticipate at least one solid action movie with unrestricted explosive thrills. Looks like this installment of the Die Hard series will be watered down like Kool-Aid so the whole family can go. Does niche marketing even exist anymore?

WTF

I'm sorry that we're being true fanboys powerbomb. Some of us grew up with these flicks with Willis swearing like a sailor, blowing up shit and scenes of harsh violence. With the PG-13 rating we may get things being blown up but McClane will no longer swear like a sailor and the violence will not be harsh. FOX fucking hates us fans, they really do. They want to appeal to those 13 year old fans who did not grow up with this flicks. I'm not seeing this in theatres, I'll wait for DVD and hopefully

It really bothers me that all these people that supposedly are so knowledgeable on movie act like this is a huge deal when it's not.

It's really sad to hear everyone's reaction. I won't even bother getting into it. Just don't be so dumb people. Use your head. PG-13 means nothing in todays world. All it means is you can't say Fuck twice.

The subtitle "return to hell" comes from the title for the 3rd movie that was: A day in hell
(1st one was: Crystal trap, and 2nd was: 58mins to live)
They actually don't sound that bad in french

No blood, guts and curses aren't what make a film. But removing profanity take away part of the essence of the McLane character. The whole point is he's a normal guy just like the rest of us (OK maybe somewhat tougher lol) and he says what we say if we'd get shot at. This way it just becomes another action movie which happens to have Bruce Willis in it. It might be a good action movie, but I don't think it will be Die Hard.


We will have to wait and see.

Right On love broker...

Guy's right, you are a bunch of mama's boy fuckin' crybabies. Does anybody here seriously think that blood, guts, and profanity will make an intrinsically horrible film better?!? You think that more blood would have fixed the terminally flawed script and pacing of AvP? Would some heavy profanity have made Mortal Kombat: Anhillation watchable? Would hardcore blood and guts make Battlefield Earth less laughable? And would a few F-bombs have saved the crapfest of X3? Ask yourself how many horrible

Would hardcore blood and guts make Battlefield Earth less laughable? And would a few F-bombs have saved the crapfest of X3? Ask yourself how many horrible R rated films you've seen, and I think you'll know the real answer. It all lies in the script and the directing, not the graphic content or the capacity for verbal vulgarity. If Underworld and Underworld Evolution taught me anything, it's that Len Wiseman knows what he's doing behind a camera with a good action script. While I admit that I am unfamiliar with the script work of Mark Bomback, I have confidence that Wiseman wouldn't have done a film with an actionless story. And hell, even if the movie DOES suck, it won't be for a PG-13 rating. Time to start putting the blame where it belongs, guys. It belongs on bad directors and writers. If it kills you to not hear Bruce Willis say fuck a few more times, than you need to seriously reexamine whats important to you in a film.

Fuck you, FOX

If Spielberg could get Transformers moved from an R to a PG-13, I'm sure Willis could have convinced Rothman's dumbass to grow some balls and go for the R.

If the film wasn't cut at all and received a PG-13, I'd be fine, but we all know that's not what happened. And I don't care what site Bruce gets on and claims this is the best Die Hard yet, it's not like he's going to say it sucks....not yet at least, he'll wait until after it does all it's business, then he'll talk about how much it

Fucking cry babies.

It's going to be a kick ass movie. PG-13 or not. Deal with it. To be honest with you, the violence in the Die Hards wasn't that high it was the cursing. And honestly, it don't really matter about cursing. As long as it kicks violent ass -- and it will.
