Brawl in the bar (0:13:06)

Nico has just hit his elbow in the face of the guy with the blue shirt (without sleeves) twice.

Blood is running from his nose and his face is wreathing in pain.

Before Nico kicks open the door to the room in which he finds Lucia and her friend the British version does not show her lighting a crack-pipe.

Nico takes care of head-bad-guy Zagon (1:29:00)

In the British version Nico "only" breaks Zagon's neck. The following can be seen in the uncut version:
After Nico has hit Zagon in the face powerfully a close up of Zagon's face is missing in the British version. We see his smashed and bleeding nose very clearly. After that, Nico uses his right hand to grab Zagon's right wrist and breaks the arm down in the opposite direction of the elbow. Zagon screams in pain. Here, the British version joins in, again, and shows Nico breaking Zagon's neck.

77 frames are missing, that equals 3.08 seconds.
