Ahimsa Entertainment, the film’s UK distributor, provided a glimpse into what audiences can expect from “Leo.” They described the film as intensely raw and violent, featuring strong violence and gory scenes that exceeded expectations. The film was initially targeted for a 15+ rating but was ultimately given an 18+ rating by the BBFC, restricting it to viewers aged 18 and above.
*2min40s of graphic close-up shots of gory aftermaths will be trimmed. In cinemas, these changes will be unnoticeable and won’t affect the flow, core story, or mass moments. These shots make up less than 1% of the film's violence. Any additional change in runtime is from titles.
