Lord Of The Rings Deemed Unsuitable

The first movie in the 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy, 'The Fellowship Of The Ring' will carry warnings that it is unsuitable for young children in the UK, even though it got a PG(Parental Guidance) rating, reports BBC.

It will be one of a very few PG movie to carry extra advice which is aimed at children under eight, over battle, and horror scenes.

The PG certificate does not stop children from watching the movie but suggests parental guidance.

Entertainment Film Distributors has agreed to include the advice that the film contains scenes which may not be suitable.

The British Board Of Film Classification says the film "was not strong enough to take it into the 12 category, but it is at the top end of the PG category which is why it will carry the consumer advice."

It added: "The board considers that while the battle violence and fantasy horror in The Lord Of The Rings is likely to be enjoyed by children over the age of eight, younger children could be frightened or disturbed."

It is due to receive its world première in London on 10 December, 2001. And general release on 19 December, 2001.
