Lethal Ninja(1993) Pre-Cut?

Postby Luke » 13 Feb 2017, 19:15

Recently obtained the HOLLYWOOD DVD release of the Nu Image actioner Lethal Ninja(1993). According to the BBFC site, all known submission were passed without cuts. After watching the film, I spotted a sequence where a ninja weilds two nunchaku. Now this must have been pre-cut surely?, looking at the BBFC site the run times for the VHS/DVD do not vary.

Can anyone confirm if the VHS was cut?, I've only seen this on DVD.

You are not mising much Mark, but the Hollywood DVD is UNCUT. There was no throwing star useage in this movie. It's not all that violent really, and the fights are poorly staged. It's another Nu Image movie, filmed in South Africa. Apart from the doube nunchaku scene, the BBFC may have trimmed a few neck breaks. One of the characters brandishes a crossbow, but the BBFC were more lenient on this weapon by 92.
