"Max Payne" director John Moore won his battle with the Motion Picture Association of America and the film now has a PG-13 rating according to Cinema Blend .
Initially rated R by the MPAA, Moore strongly criticized the ratings board in an interview - calling the ruling unfair.
Moore and his editors "trimmed some frames more for the sake of trimming frames"
The director also tells the Game Daily gang that he is planning a "Gamer Dedicated Cut" of the film:
"It's a little slower and a little more atmospheric. There are some rougher edges on it, but it's not going to be a bloodfest. I want this to be the Max Payne that I set out to shoot. It's not that I wanted to release one version in the theaters and make a cheap buck by following up with a blood-drenched DVD version. The movie you see in the theaters will be an intense experience and the movie you see on DVD will be as intense an experience with some extra sensibilities for people who really adore the game."
The DVD has become the problem solving friend of the filmmaker in situations like this....
