The 1986 and 1990 UK video versions were cut by 1 min 38 secs by the BBFC to remove the rape before the fight on the roof and to heavily edit fight scenes including groin kicks, face slaps and a woman's head being hit against a window. Some fight cuts were restored in the 1998 MIA video release though most of the original BBFC edits were retained. The 2006 Anchor Bay DVD had been heavily pre-edited and was missing the BBFC cuts along with some other edits.
