Beside the regular version (the so-called 'US-cut') which is the basis for most releases in other countries, there exists a so-called 'Hong Kong cut', made by Jackie Chan himself. For the release throughout Asia, he created several alternative plot parts and removed sexual content. Further, some scenes were changed and filmed again. The Japanese LaserDisc is based on this Hong Kong version. Additionally, it contains some more scenes and differences. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
The movie had to be cut at the time of the release in order to get the R-Rating from the MPAA, which demanded the removal of a few shots of the brutal bar shooting at the beginning. The later DVD release of the movie, however, contains the uncut version despite having the R-Rating. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
