Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • German VHS
Release: Mar 17, 2013 - Author: Eiskaltes Grab - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut R-Rated DVD by New Concorde and the uncut FSK 18 VHS by VMP.

57 cuts = 11 minutes and 2 seconds.
1 alternative scene = no difference in running time.

This cheap action B-movie was released in the US in a heavily cut R-Rated version. Many scenes were shortened by a total of 11 minutes in order to tighten the movie. The violent scenes are all still intact. So far, an uncut version has not been published in the US, therefore the German FSK 18 VHS has to serve as point of comparison.
