US version rated 'R' (released in vhs, laserdisc, and dvd in the US) is cut (totalling 13 seconds) as follows:
The party in the pool lost a shot of an Oriental man walking with a topless woman
Several shots of Yoshida caressing Angel before choping her head are deleted
The exact chopping of Angel's head is shown in two different angles, but only one in the R version.
When the coroner opens the body bag, in the unrated version we get to enjoy two shots completely of Angel's seperated head, but the R has only one intact.
When Kenner stabs the fat guy under water, one brief shot of Kenner twisting the knife in the stomach while blood pours out, is removed. The cut FI-version is based on the full, unrated uncut version, so it features almost all material cut from it!
Another stalwart effort from the director of Commando
Surely the rating should be higher? This is one of the better Dolph Lundgren-takes-on-all-comers movies, and its got Brandon Lee godamnit!
Ok, so it gets predictable, but isnt that why action movies are so well loved? Its got enough of a storyline not to resemble Red Scorpion in any way, but only just little enough to make it a totally enjoyable flick. I mean, for 1991, what were you expecting? Considering that this was the director who brought us Commando, this is the ultimate in bloke films. If you want to clear the women away, put either one of these films on and enjoy a mens night in!
So its not Minority Report, its not The Shawshank Redemption but its redemption at its best, feet first!
Oh, and Tia Carrare in a hot tub. Gets it at least one point. ;)
