Circumcision taken to new heights

The movie Watchmen is being shown on the big screen in the UAE. Only problem? Censors cut the main character from the final 20 minutes due to a lack of a wardrobe. I would have thought maybe some strategic blurring could suffice.

'Strategic blurring' is a very easy procedure when dealing with video content and can be implemented fast and without any significant extra cost.

But adding blur to motion picture film would be a major task, quite beyond the scope of a local exhibitor or distributor.

As for those who feel the need to excise an animated blue willy... well, they must indeed be sad and conflicted people.

Since the character is CGI and the studio had to know that this would be a problem in large parts of the world, I was surprised that they didn't just make an alternate version that had the character animated with some shorts.
