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.
This movie was awesome! I don't remember the last time I enjoyed a martial arts movie as much as I enjoyed this. The fighting is sensational and the performances of the actors are very convincing and even touching in parts, rare for a B martial arts film. I can honestly say I enjoyed this more than the first and consider it the best of the first two. I cannot comment on the other sequels since I haven't seen them but I will definitely check them out. If you are looking for a great authentic action and martial arts film that is chock full of mindless and brutal violence, then look no further. As I was watching the movie, all I could think was how did this film managed to slip through my fingers? Anyway, if you are into this type of thing and see it at your local video store, give it a rent. You'll be glad you did. Bottom line: this movie rocks!
