The British label Hongkong Legends has put on the market some really great DVD releases for fans of Asian movies over the years. But among these releases are also some black sheep, with Snake in the Eagle's Shadow being one of them. This version had to be cut due to the guide lines of the BBFC. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.Snake in the Eagle's Shadow is almost 7.5 minutes shorter in Japan. There's no violent footage missing, some plot elements were removed though. Basically, it's the typical Hong Kong humor that's missing but one could speculate for what reason the visit to a brothel was cut. Irritatingly, a few quite harmless fight / training scenes are missing, too. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
