Goofs

During the intro titles as the camera is following the woman holding the baby, as she steps onto an escalator there is a man behind her wearing a grey T-shirt who is carrying a shoulder bag with a red strap. However as the camera shot changes to show her getting off at the end, the man is suddenly now in front and can be seen stepping off and walking ahead of her. See more »

Superb jungle mayhem by Deodato
26 May 2010 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Another short comment from The Vault, dated 2006/10/11:

"Now we're talking business! Finally I was able to purchase the shiny uncut and uncensored Anchor Bay edition of "Cut and Run", Ruggero Deodato's notorious 'drugs & jungle'-fest. And yes, it's violent, it's gory, and misogynistic. And it even manages to tell a pretty decent, dual plotted story. An ambitious reporter (Lisa Blount) is after the story of a lifetime when she discovers a renegade colonel (Richard Lynch), who supposedly died years ago, is currently in the drug traffic business, producing cocaine in the jungle. Also, the son of a rich American TV-producer disappeared in that very same jungle. We pretty soon learn that he is held against his will by the colonel to help him fabricate and transport drugs. Further more, the colonel is helped by a ruthless native tribe. You guessed it: there's plenty of room for decapitations, disembowelment, dismemberment, violations of women,... This all boils down to some pretty cruel jungle mayhem. If you see it, then make sure to watch the restored uncut version, because otherwise you'll miss out on some of the fun stuff and even a few additional plot elements."
