Max Payne noir-ly gets an 'R,' MPAA settles on 'PG-13'

Director John Moore has confirmed that the film adaptation of Max Payne will receive a PG-13 rating when it releases Oct. 17. Earlier this month, the director admitted he was in a fight with the Motion Picture Association of America after being told his movie "feels R."

In an interview with GameDaily, Moore states that they merely "trimmed some frames," but didn't make any major changes. It's certainly amusing that a kid will be able to purchase a ticket to the movie adaptation of an M-rated game s/he shouldn't be able to purchase in a store.
