To mark the latest Arnold Schwarzenegger, actioner Terminator Genisys, Gavin Salkeld looks back to the BBFC cuts to achieve a 12 rating for Kindergarten Cop.

The BBFC seemed to be struggling a bit with the new 12 rating as the cuts spoiled a few scenes, whilst not really achieving much change to the level of violence.
