Tai-Chi Master (1993)
FAQAdd to FAQ (Coming Soon)
This minor classic from Jet Li's pre-Hollywood era (directed by Yuen Woo-Ping and also starring Michelle Khan) was - as happened with many HK movies - cut, redubbed and equipped with a new score for the US release (repsonsible this time: Dimension Films). At least there is not as much missing as is the case with other movies, besides one violence cut it is mostly the typical HK humor that was removed. Luckily, in 2008 Dragon Dinasty and Bey Logan released the uncut version on DVD and Blu-Ray in the US. Approx. three minutes are missing in the old US Version.
Also, there's a Taiwanese release where a fight scene is missing. It could be either due to editing errors or a deliberate removal because it is a fighting technique referring to Buddha that could have been perceived as critical in Taiwan. Edit (Coming Soon)
