In X-Men: First Class there is a scene where Havok is learning how to control his special power and uses mannequins for target practice. These mannequins presumably have nipples or a chest of some sort but the Emirates censors have blurred them out.
Being androgynous headless torsos it was impossible to tell what we were missing out on, which I guess is good censorship, however it seems very heavy handed.
Mannequins aren’t the only things to be redacted, swear words in other films were dubbed like a film shown on ITV in the 1980s (mutherfunster anyone?). Excessive uses of cuss words in say an argument meant that the scene is edited out all together with a quick snip of the censor’s scissors.
What the fuck?
