The Transformers movie Bumblebee which is showing in the school holidays is likely to appeal to children, but parents should be aware that this film was originally classified as M, but was modified, and downgraded to PG.
ACCM feels that it should have retained the M classification due to the volume and frequency of violence. Parents should also note that there are now two versions of the film released, one is rated M and the other rated PG. In addition, it is likely that when the film is released on DVD it will be the ‘M’ rated version.
