Do you remember the film “2012” by Roland Emmerich? It is (another) disaster film about the end of the world, which has allegedly been predicted for 21 December 2012 by the Maya Calendar.
In the film, the earth’s core heats up, volcanoes erupt, millions die in earthquakes, floods consume whole countries, glaciers melt, tsunamis kill almost everybody who is still alive. All countries and continents are affected and destroyed, except for a small part of Africa. It is complete annihilation, an orgy of disasters, explosions and death.
And how did the British Board of Film Classification rate this film? The BBFC warns: “Contains sustained moderate threat and one use of strong language.”
“Moderate threat”? The earth is destroyed and 7 billion people die.
One just has to love British understatement! I wish the people at the BBFC were responsible for the terrorism threat warnings.
