The Thailand theatrical special version added a fight scene between Huo Yuanjia (Li) and a Thai boxer called Bei Cha (portrayed by Somluck Kamsing).
The Original Director's cut was released in region 3. The run time is 140 minutes and contains many significant changes from the region 1 "uncut" dvd. It also contains the original subtitles and not dubtitles like the region 1
The American PG-13 version is cut for violence. All of the shots of graphic bone-breaking are edited or shortened and the amount of blood is reduced (such as when Huo kills his family's murderer or when a fighter coughs up a lot of blood at the end at the climactic battle).
