There are two known versions. One version features an extra scene where Jason and Kelly go up to the top of the Space Needle but this version also deletes a few of the other scenes. It's also possible that this extra scene is only in the UK print of the movie. This would be to make up for the lost "feature time" from the censored and deleted action sequences. One version of this movie is 85 minutes and the uncut version is 95 minutes (but missing the Space Needle scene). See more »
I most start this off by saying, I think this is one of the best movies every made, its in my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I watched this movie like everyday after shcool when I was a kid. its great.. its so entertaining, and never gets old. it has a great story, great action scenes, great music, and memereble lines and characters. I still watch this movie all the time. When lifes at its low points, and I'm feeling down, when I watch this movie, it gives me the inspiration to not give up and keep pushing on. I love this movie, its got me through some hard times.
