The UK cinema version was heavily cut for a PG rating with edits to shots of impaled bodies and the puncturing of a ring containing an eyeball, and to remove all footage of topless nudity during Kiri's bathing scene. The video certificate was raised to a 15 but early Warner releases mistakenly featured the cut cinema print. The 1998 Five Star Directors Cut video and all subsequent releases are fully uncut.

The Beastmaster is one of those movies that you watch when you're bored and there's nothing else on. It's got silly lines, a host of B-actors, and a really outlandish plot, but that all adds up to a fun couple of hours.
