Lloyd Kaufman planned for the film to be rated R for theatrical cult status: "It was our answer to Rambo, Reaganomics, to the new interest in war. We based the violence in the movie on 'Die Hard' and 'RoboCop.' Michael didn't think there would be one cut from MPAA. But the end result was the movie was totally disemboweled, totally disemboweled, to the point where bullet hits were removed, men on fire were removed, Siamese twins were removed. In order to get an R rating, the movie was rendered unwatchable." Following the film's poor critical and financial performance, Troma experienced financial hardship and jettisoned the company from the Hollywood mainstream. See more »

The BBFC 18 VHS cut has 13 minutes and 57 seconds removed (the equivalent to the R-Rated cut) - eliminating much of the graphic violence and the rape scene. See more »
Typically low-rent action fare, full of repetitive action scenes that are neither exciting nor funny. I guess you have to get in the right state of mind to enjoy a film like this, otherwise the annoying characters, cheesy humor and stupid plot just might exhaust you. (*1/2)
