Warning - Deadpool is not a movie for children! February 16, 2016

Parents are warned to take notice of the MA15+ rating and the Australian Classification Board guidelines "Strong bloody violence and sex scene" for the movie Deadpool. The latest movie featuring a Marvel character is not for children under 15. ACCM have not reviewed this movie because of its restricted classification (our reviews feature all G and PG movies and M movies that are likely to appeal to children) but a review can be found on the website of US organisation Commonsense Media who suggest that it is best suited to viewers aged 17+.
