Compared are the shortened R-Rated DVD from TVA Films and the uncut UK-DVD from Anchor Bay (BBFC 18/"Unrated").
Difference: 8 minutes and 35.5 seconds in 46 scenes.
A pretty boring and cheesy trash flick which has absolutely nothing to offer that would make it worth being watched. The only reason (of one could call it a reason in the first place) are the very attractive female actors as amazons.
In the US, a cut version with more than 8 min of missing footage has been release as R-Rated Version on VHS and DVD. Most of the cuts affect dialog scenes. Surprisingly, the versions on the US VHS and DVD aren't equal. Both version contain the very same plot scenes being removed but some violence has also been censored on the DVD.
