The american cut is badly dubbed and clipped. Painful to watch.
8 March 2004 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Tongs (1986) I saw this movie several years ago on videotape. It was a clipped dubbed copy of the movie. From what I saw it was a bad and incoherent mess. It was all over the place. The worst part was the dubbing. Any seriousness was gone because the voice actors were terrible. I might look upon this movie differently if I saw it in it's original format. But for now all I have to say is the english version blows big time.

Mildly recommended for a few cheap laughs.

Simon Yam's still the man!
