Kingsman: The Golden Circle banned in Cambodia

Postby YaTingPom » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:38 pm

"Cinemagoers, be warned: the blockbuster sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle won’t be playing in a theatre near you after all, with government officials yanking the action flick from the Kingdom’s screens over an allegedly negative portrayal of Cambodia deemed unacceptable for local audiences.

Simon Choo, the distribution director at Westec Media, which purchased the local distribution rights for the film, took issue with the ministry’s reasoning.
“I think it’s a very childish or immature decision,” he said."

Nice knowing you Choo. Goodbye. :facepalm:

clear reference to Cambodia as a location in which the fictional villains are living and producing drugs

Obviously pure fiction.

Well to be fair this country doesn't actually produce many drugs. It's more of a distribution center.

I think it's fair to say that the movie portrays Cambodia in a negative way. Banning the movie serves to confirm that the authorities see a shred of truth in that portrayal.

All the movies that show the British and Irish as the baddies should be banned in the UK too.

What's wrong with Russian baddies?
