Kingsman banned in Cambodia over 'negative portrayal'

From BBC - October 12, 2017

Cambodia has banned Hollywood movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle over its alleged negative portrayal of the kingdom.

The decision was made last week on the grounds that the blockbuster was unacceptable for local audiences.

Authorities say the movie uses "Cambodian land as the place where the terrorists stay and make trouble for the world".

Meanwhile, the local distribution company called the decision "childish".

Since it was released less than a month ago the movie, which is a sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, has grossed more than $261m (199m).

The action-comedy film chronicles British and American spy organisations teaming up in search of the secret base of a drug lord.

Once they find the base, which is a temple surrounded by jungles in Cambodia, a showdown between the two sides ensues.
