Daredevil Banned From Malaysian Cinemas[Friday, February 14th, 2003]
Malaysian movie censors have banned Daredevil from cinemas for being too violent, according to Variety. However the ban is said would have little effect as pirated VCD and DVD versions of the film are already available on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
Talking on the imposed ban Deputy Home Minister Chor Chee Heung is quoted as saying, "Most of the time, censorship is adequate if only some portions of the film require censorship, but if too much censorship is required, making the film meaningless, it is best banned,". Chor said 20th Century Fox had appealed to Malaysia's Censorship Board for a review of the decision.
The movies opens nationwide in the US this weekend.
