This was originally filmed in direct-sound English. This was very rare for Italian movies at that time, but necessary due to the large number of American actors. When Anchor Bay released the uncut version on DVD, the scenes were dubbed into Italian with English subtitles. Apparently the original soundtrack could not be located. The scenes are in Italian because the English-export edition and the Italian edition were edited with different shots. The English-export edition (released in theaters in the US) used "cleaner" versions shot at the same time as the "gorier" versions. It was not a matter of cutting down the gorier shots to make them less gory, as the producers actually filmed two different versions of the same scenes. Anchor Bay was a bit sloppy putting together its release, as one shot with Karen Black dubbed into Italian can be found in English on earlier VHS releases. See more »
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 »
Gore haters, cut and run from this unexceptional actioner
Cut And Run is a shockingly violent film, that I've just seen, where even back in it's time, would of been over violent, like some of those one off shockers of the 80's. I almost regret not seeing it back in the 8O's, where with the not most inviting of covers, it would of been interesting to see my reaction back at 15, whatever. Even, in it's explosive start, it's shockingly violent, but worse comes later, believe me. The cover actually falsifies Berryman, as if one of the major stars. Like other flicks, his ugly dial only appears at a couple moments here, where he's mostly doing harm. The movie has a bad script, with plain dialogue I couldn't believe, as if through bits of it, a three year old stepped on board. It has some bad actors, where I think you can pinpoint them out. Lisa Blount as an impulsive reporter, Fran, is the real acting strength in this film. She and her cameraman, are on this mission to fly to the lush Columbian jungle to track down the boss's son Tommy (Aames, miscast) who's been used as a muel in the drug smuggling trade, with a hot young Brazilian honey, her nubile nude body, used as sexual collateral. Also, if she's lucky, Blount will score an interview with a enigmatic figure (Lynch) who escaped the Jonestown Massacre which saw a suicide pact of over three hundred people, an interesting angle to a sometimes disjointed story, or lack of it. I'll be honest, this is a bad movie, but it's bloody gruesome too. There are some good action bits and exciting ones, but other parts are slow and dull, you'll almost want something to happen or turn off, as the direction story isn't really one that grabs you, where judging by that, the future of the story doesn't look that much brighter. Being an Italian exploitation flick, the music again impresses, too, the score at the explosive opening. When finally seeing Richard Lynch, again it's worth the wait as the fine late great actor, again doesn't disappoint. I wish I could say more positive stuff about this film, a similarity shared to the director's earlier pic, Cannibal Holocaust is the run ins with deadly reptiles, etc.
