Comparison between the UK DVD by Cine Asia and the Korean Blu-ray by Art Service. Both discs contain the theatrical version of the movie.

War of the Arrows, like many other new historical dramas from Asia, had to be cut in the UK. In comparison to other movies like Red Cliff or The Warlords, this movie has very few fight scenes with horses, but at the end there's a fall which falls within the scope of animal cruelty.

The English DVD additionally contains 3 fixed subtitle displays which are missing on the Korean Blu-ray, only when the subtitles are turned on they are displayed too.
