Comparison:

  • Chinese TV Version
  • French VOD Version
Release: May 22, 2016 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the cut Chinese TV Version and the French VOD Version.


- 25 cuts
- Length difference: 427.8 sec (= 7:08 min)



The Shaw Brothers film Killers on Wheels is obviously based on Straw Dogs: It is about a biker gang harassing a harmless trio in general and the two women in particular. Besides humiliation, rape and vigilante justice are also on the table. Unfortunately, there are only a few releases worldwide. Considered uncut is the French Version available via Video on Demand on Virginmedia.fr with hardcoded French subtitles. This version was also used for the following comparison.

The Chinese TV Version is worth checking out - due to a lack of alternate international releases. This version is based on the restored Celestial master, Chinese and English subtitles have been added. Contrary to the French subtitles on Virginmedia.fr, those do not pop up in the actual images permanently.

But due to the huge amount of cuts, the Chinese TV Version is not exactly recommendable: While violence was not an issue, any implication of nudity was cut. This went so far that even a yellow graffiti of breasts on a car window was censored. All in all, worth documenting due to its curiousity.

At the beginning of the shot, a female gang member opens the window.

1 sec




26:21 / 26:58-26:59

The camera pans longer over the beach: Besides a few tents, the two dancing girls are back. They slowly undress. The boys are then having fun with their bras and push themselves in the middle - any kind of pass gets rejected though. One of them is arguing, the mountain on which the race takes place in the following scene (in both versions) becomes an issue.

84 sec




35:46 / 38:03-38:54

The girl on the ground is attacked by some guy. Another girl has to fight off several guys as well. In both cases, it is not clear what exactly is just partr of the game and what happens against the girls' will.

50.9 sec
