Sex & Nudity

  • In the Miramax version there was only one scene involving a woman bathing, but you only see the back side of her in the tub. While in the Re-Cobbled version, you a couple more shots of the woman bathing, but only above the breast line was shown in the movie.
  • In the Re-Cobbled version version, ZigZag presents the sultan with a woman from Mombassa. She is referred to as a "plaything" and she is hidden behind a curtain.
  • In the Re-Cobbled version version, there is a scene that implies that she and the Sultan are having sex, but you don't see anything happening in that scene due to the curtains being drawn.
  • Also in that version, during the polo match the Sultan sticks his hand in the curtain and the woman's pleasured laugh is heard. The curtain is still present in the Miramax version of this scene, but the hand action is cleverly edited out.
  • In the Re-Cobbled version, when ZigZag enters the One-Eye's camp, there are scantily clad dancing girls who form a chair for One-Eye to sit on when he commands "Throne!" They are still seen in the background as a throne in the Miramax version.

Violence & Gore
