The 18-rated UK release of this film had 1 minute 31 seconds pre-cut by the distributor. The cuts are as follows:
The duel between Tommy (Philip Rhee) and the Asian, ponytailed gladiator has been severly shortened for the U.K prints. A lengthy segment of the fight in which the gladiator uses two pairs of silver nunchakus is missing.
The scene lasts twice as long in the uncut version, which has been shown in the past on Sky. The version currently screening on Bravo, however, appears to be the same as the video except for an extra shot of James (Tommy's native brother) having his finger blown off - which isn't in Sky's print.
Eric Roberts and Phillip Rhee return as the two karate champs Alex Grady and Tommy Lee who team up to take on a Schwarzenegger style brute named Brackus (Rolph Moller) who kills their friend Travis Brickley (Christopher Penn), they begin training with Lee's uncle (Sonny Landham) who is the only one who can teach them the ways to destroy Brackus in this mediocre yet definitely improved sequel. Good fightscenes and a scene stealing performance from Wayne Newton make this one watchable.
