This action film was released in the US in both an R-rated and an Unrated version. In the UK, the VHS we're reviewing here was based on the Unrated version, but it was also somewhat censored due to BBFC guidelines primarily related to weapons use. The British DVD, on the other hand, was and is uncut.
