Comparison:

  • BBFC 15 BD / UK Theatrical Version
  • UK DVD
Release: May 01, 2012 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Mr Miau - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the cut British Blu-Ray (main movie: BBFC12A, additional material rating: BBFC15) and the uncut British DVD (BBFC 15)


- 34 cuts
- total cut length: 90,6 sec (= 1:31 min)



In Great Britain, this movie had been cut in order to achieve the more lucrative BBFC12 rating, however, only the uncut US Theatrical Version was released on DVD (tagged as "Director's Cut"). The later BD release turned out to be a bad surprise: despite the BBFC15 rating only the shortened BBFC12 version could be found on the disc!

This could also be verified with the help of our reader Gavin Salkeld, who is a composer and movie maker that takes a special interest in censoring issues and supplied us with details about the Theatrical Version of the movie.

This movie was cut quite thoroughly. The removed parts are quite often only a few frames long, yet still the total cut lenght of 1,5 minutes is quite remarkable. Almost all of the really violent bits were removed, some framecuts during shots showing guns towards the end were added as well.
A comparison of the soundtrack, however, showed no difference at all. That is, of course, if the scene even made it into the cut version...


Viewers from Britain who want to enjoy the movie in HD and uncut can order the German Blu-Ray, which features the uncut US Version.

Very short cloe-up showing the fingers of the guy getting hit by the whip.

Travis headbutts Beck but just hurts himself.

1,2 sec

After getting punched in the face, the bad guy staggers around a bit until Beck puts a pistol in his mouth.

1,8 sec




25:55 / 24:55-24:56

Another shot of the pistol in the mouth.

1 sec




26:02 / 25:04-25:06

Beck turns around, forcing the guy to follow the movement.

2,4 sec




26:03 / 25:07-25:08

The shot starts a moment earlier and Beck's legs hitting the guy's chest can be seen.

0,4 sec




45:51 / 44:06-44:16

The first rather long cut: Beck's enemy looks angrily, then two of his colleagues beat up Beck further (in slow motion shots).

10,5 sec




45:55 / 44:20-44:35

The kick against his toros can be seen, then more rebels attack Beck. He can partially defend itself but is being brought to the ground by another attacker.

Beck receives another kick.

0,8 sec




47:01 / 45:40-46:03

At this point, a large piece was removed quite intelligently. After the leader came jumping along the British Blu-ray instantly shows Beck throwing him to the ground.

In the original version, Beck grabs his legs and throws him to the side when another rebel takes a burning stick and attacks him with it. Beck can disarm him and "extinguish" the burning end with another attacker's head. When two more opponents use lianas to attack, they get to feel the stick as well.
Eventually, Beck's first enemy of this part gets up again and holds a knife but Beck can grab his hands.

1,2 sec




81:09 / 78:55-78:57
