The release from Manga, in the US and UK, was edited to remove the more offensive scenes of rape, cannibalism, violence and so on; this is in addition to the cuts made to the film by the BBFC for its UK release. Right Stuf sub-licensed it and released it uncut under their Critical Mass label. See more »
To its credit, I did watch this anime all the way through. Most of Go Nagai's productions have that effect on me. But if you're a fan of anime, keep in mind, not all anime that makes it to this side of the Pacific is good.
There were some half-hearted attempts to bring some sophistication to this story, but personally, I was quickly distracted from those attempts by the gratuitous breast shots and the fountains of blood.
There is also an attempt to build Savage Jack into a anti-hero, which doesn't completely succeeds, and winds up making him more of a thug than anything else.
