Comparison between the cut UK VHS by First Independent (BBFC 18) and the uncut FSK 16 DVD by Kinowelt (Theatrical Version).
Time difference is 8 seconds in one alternative cut.
In Great Britain a scene had to be cut in this excellent ghetto drama because of the alleged danger of imitation. In this scene one can Caine and O-Dog break into a car.
O-Dog is prying open the door of a car while Caine stands beside him and watches the procedure. The UK version shows a shot of the parking lot guard instead.
FSK 16: 9 sec
BBFC 18: +1 sec
