Dr. Strange 2 has many people wondering about the film’s PG-13 rating. I’m Amy E. Feldman.
Reviewers of Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness have had much to say about the film’s PG-13 rating, which many people thought should have been rated R, because of bloody violence, gruesome kills, and as one person posted, body horror. Or as many say, the makings of an awesome movie. Many, but not those who took their elementary school age kids to see it. Which leaves many parents wondering: who enforces the ratings that guide at what age a kid can see a movie?
The answer: you do. The Motion Picture Association of America created the rating system as a voluntary guide to help people understand the contents of a film. It is not a law and it doesn’t mean that even if a movie is PG-13 the theater is legally obligated to prevent kids under 13 from seeing it. That is for parents who get to be real life superheroes and say: I’m going to protect you from this madness.
