And the strangest part about Streets of Fire is that it got a PG-rating despite the aforementioned violence, as well as several S-bombs, a trans-gendered dancer, attempted rape, and a sex scene in the second half.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 9 2:54
Interesting point. if anything it's more like a PG-13 film, than anything else.

Go figure.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 9 15:32
Lest we forget, Jamie, is that this movie came out sometime before the invention of the PG-13 rating along with The Temple of Doom and Gremlins, therefore it could've been rated R. Then again, I guess it got PG since there isn't any moderate or heavy bleeding. In fact, I can't even remember if there is any bloodshed.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Oct 9 22:40
For me, it seems pretty odd that Red Dawn, considering how violent it was, got the PG-13 rating.
