The US television version maintains the same running time as the theatrical version (to the second), but eliminates much nudity, violence and swearing. To compensate, a number of extra scenes have been rescued from the cutting-room floor. It is this TV version that was used for the British video release (on three different labels - EMI, Warners and Lumiere), with more footage cut by the distributor.
The UK cinema version was cut by 1 min 10 secs by the BBFC to edit the subway attack scene and remove all footage of nunchakus, and this same print also appeared on early video releases. The 2000 and 2007 UK DVD releases featured the edited U.S R-rated print which alters some sexual dialogue and removes a montage of attack shots.
The Greek video version is the fully uncut and so is the Dutch tape. Finnish version is pretty heavily cut.
