  • R-Rated

Release: Mar 14, 2011 - Author: gecko666 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
The new Kickbox Champion Eric Sloane goes to Thailand to fight in Bangkok but Tong Po is out of his league. He finally ends up in a wheelchair after he got beaten by Po. His brother Kurt (Jean-Claude van Damme) is determined to take revenge. To prepare for the fight with Tong Po, he gets trained by the exentric old fighter Xian Chow. He lets Kurt in on the secrets of exotic martial arts and how to stand the worst pain. Kurt completes killer training with strict discipline but the fight with Tong Po comes closer and closer...

The German Version (rated FSK 16) is longer than the R-Rated Version because it contains more plot scene. But then again some fight scene have been censored. The reason for that is pretty simple: the Producers offered the movie to some right holders before the official assignment of permssions because they needed the money to bring it to Cannes etc. That's why Germany has a version based on a version because the final cut was made. The censorship was made by the German right holder to guarantee an FSK 16-rating. The UK Version is based on that early version as well and also censored, just like the German Version.

Cannon Film Distributors in the US got a version with a tightened plot. The violence remained unchanged but some nudity scenes were removed. Probably for the R-rating but it's also possible that the nudity scenes were just removed with the other plot scenes, which means it's actually no censorship. Who knows?

Compared are the German Version (FSK 16) and the R-Rated Version, both on the German 2 Disc Edition by Splendid.
In the R-Rated Version, the Lionsgate logo is being displayed. Furthermore title itself is being displayed differently.
