BIG GAME is an action adventure in which a 13-year-old boy has to protect the US President from terrorists when Air Force One crashes over a remote area of Finland.

Violence

There are scenes of fighting throughout. The strongest scene shows a character being head-butted, before being punched in the face, elbowed in the back, and then garrotted under water with a piece of wire; the violence is crunchy but there is no strong impact or injury detail. A man also has his head slammed against a metal surface, and there is some blood on his face.

Injury detail

Dead bodies are seen lying on the ground, and floating in water, with blood on their faces and clothes.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('motherf**ker'), which is only partially audible, as well as uses of mild bad language such as 'God', 'damn', 'shit', 'Jesus', 'Christ', 'hell', 'bitch', 'piss', 'balls' and 'ass'.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally seen for advice, at which stage the company was informed it was likely to receive a 15 classification but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a single use of a strong term ('motherf**ker'). When the film was submitted for formal classification, this term had been partially obscured and the film was classified 12A.
