Manhunt 2 Grabs A UK Release

15 03 2008

The BBC‘s reporting that the Video Appeals Committee has upheld their decision to let Manhunt 2 hit UK shelves – well, the edited version at least.

After taking their politically motivated censorship fight all the way to Britain’s High Court, ostensibly because no one else would think of the children, it looks like the BBFC’s finally had their dicks proper slapped.

Oh, and they aren’t happy about it, and I love it. From the article, David Cooke the director of the British Film Classification Board responds saying

“However, the Video Appeals Committee has again exercised its independent scrutiny. It is now clear, in the light of this decision, and our legal advice, that we have no alternative but to issue an 18 certificate to the game.”

Q-Fucking-Q. Next time maybe don’t waste British taxpayers money. Especially on a pretty tame property like Manhunt… that sold mostly on hype from this type of crap… that isn’t even that good!
