Release: May 28, 2018 - Author: Muck47 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the NL VHS and the Chinese VCD

- 9 additional scenes on the Chinese VCD with a total length of 158.8 sec (= 2:39 min) (in PAL)
- 7 additional scenes on the NL VHS with a total length of 348.1 sec (= 5:48 min)

Minor jump cuts with a length of less than 0.5 sec each have not been lised in the foloowing comparison.

Number one copycat Bruce Li in his first "own" Eastern: In Edge of Fury (1978), he plays a guy of good nature who starts working for some crook in order to support his mom financially. But when his boss dies, he gets sucked into a turf war and despite a lot of investigating, he gets to kick some butt as well. The result is a decent movie, nothing spectacular though.

In addition to the different versions on the French DVD and the NL VHS, there is also an Asian Version. The latter is available as Chinese VCD and it roughly censored: Every single nudity and/or sex scene is cut - or those have been intentionally added to the Export Versions. As compensation (if you will), there is an exclusively scene with Bruce Li while there is alternate, more harmless footage for two further scenes.
