Ahead of its October 4 release date, the BBFC have officially classified upcoming action sequel Taken 2 with a 12A certificate after cuts.
From BBFC Site:
During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission. Detailed information on these changes is below but may contain plot details or spoilers.
This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 15 rating but that their preferred 12A rating could be achieved by making changes to three scenes. These were to reduce elements of violence and threat. When an edited version of the film was submitted for formal classification, the scenes had been reduced and the film was consequently rated 12A.
