Wir berichteten ja bereits über den Ärger, den Regisseur John Moore mit dem R-Rating seines Films Max Payne hatte. Vorwiegend ging es ihm darum, dass The Dark Knight problemlos ein PG-13 Rating bekommen hat. Nun hat er den Film leicht verändert, sodass er es dennoch zur niedrigeren Altersfreigabe gebracht hat. Er betonte allerdings extra, dass der Film kaum verändert wurde. "I must say, and that's what's a little bewildering about this, I didn't have to change much. We trimmed some frames more for the sake of trimming frames than anything, but we got the rating without any major changes at all. I'm a little surprised that we changed their minds, effectively, but I'm happy about it. It proves that if you stick to your guns and you have the creative, and dare I say moral sense, that you're in the right, that you can get the right thing done."

Ausserdem kündigte er an, dass es einen "Gamer Dedicated Cut" auf DVD und Blu-ra geben werde, der den Film zwar nicht zu einem Schlachtfest werden lässt, aber ihn etwas langsamer und rauer macht. "There's what I call the Gamer Dedicated Cut of the movie. It's a little slower and a little more atmospheric. There are some rougher edges on it, but it's not going to be a bloodfest. I want this to be the Max Payne that I set out to shoot. It's not that I wanted to release one version in the theaters and make a cheap buck by following up with a blood-drenched DVD version. The movie you see in the theaters will be an intense experience and the movie you see on DVD will be as intense an experience with some extra sensibilities for people who really adore the game."
