The 1994 UK video certificate was initially rejected by the BBFC. It was then passed later the same year after 7 minutes 32 secs of distributor edits and a further 1 min 28 secs of BBFC cuts which removed nearly all the violent fight footage including head kicks and punches. The cuts were fully restored in the 2004 Hollywood DVD release. See more »
Welcome to the 90's: Roddy Piper and Billy Blanks, direct-to-video stars.
Back in Action (1994) was another direct-to-video-movie that starred two of the biggest players in the rising rental market. Billy Blanks plays a former decorated solider who's sister is mixed up with a local gangster. He knows that he's no good and she'll end up in trouble or worse. Roddy Piper co-stars as a hung over drunken cop who crosses paths with the enraged Billy. How will theses two be able to help each other out? Roddy wants to bust the mobster and Billy wants to put them six feet under. Will these two hot heads be able to work together and take a bite out of organized crime?
Roddy Piper and Billy Blanks found new careers in making low budget direct-to-video-action-films. This was a few years before Mr. Blanjs struck gold with the Tai-Bo gimmick and no longer needed to play in these cheesy films. Another underrated action duo. Blanks and Piper made a very interesting team.
