Local Movie With Steven Seagal Gets '15-and-Over' Rating

2004/05/02 | 593 views | Permalink | Source

An upcoming local film with Hollywood action star Steven Seagal will be reduced by eight minutes in an attempt for a lower rating.
"Clementine", starring South Korean action star Lee Dong-jun, actress Kim Hye-ri and Seagal, received an "18-and-over" rating last month from the media ratings board. The filmmakers then cut or rerecorded eight minutes of the film that the board found objectionable, which mostly had to do with crude and sexual language, and was able to get a "15-and-over" rating last week.

The film was reduced to 100 minutes from 108 minutes and many scenes with comedian Kim Yong were taken out, according to Pulse Star, the company behind the film.

"Clementine" stars Lee as a martial arts expert who, after unfairly losing a taekwondo championship match to Seagal seven years ago, is forced to do so again after his daughter is kidnapped.
