    It says it was banned for only children under 11 to see it. So basically it was rated a PG-13 film. Not that big of a deal.

    Those 1983 social anxieties sure seem pressing and relevant.
    Way to get on this when I was thirteen, TS

    lol, what kind of a reason is that for banning a movie?

    Mean adults as antagonists are a staple of kids movies (or at least they were)...

    We had some idiotic movie laws back in the day, but this example is just retarded. Do you consider a movie "banned" when it is PG-13?

    I remember when Robocop came to Finland and the version they showed here was like 7 minutes shorter than the original version, because all the good (bad) parts were censored. I was livid.

    I remember a version of that movie that was broadcast here in England in the early 90s. Every swear word was censored and dubbed with something tame e.g. dickhead > airhead, bullshit > baloney, fucking > freaking.

    They also censored the majority of the violence as you described.
