For those of you who know the books, a PG seems awfully mild for what these films are capable of. The books begin to deal with more adult subject matters and therefore should be for a more adult audience. I would LOVE to see a rated-R Harry Potter, although I know that will never happen. I expected this film to at least be a solid, if not pushing boundaries PG-13 film. But no, the film had been given a PG rating for “scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality.” How scary can something be with a PG rating? My 4-year-old brother can watch PG films and I expect more from my Potter!
What do you think? Do you think this film can be done properly with less than a PG-13 rating?
