| Ruggero Deodato delivers in this violent action-adventure
From the director of Cannibal Holocaust - undoubtedly one of the most impressive movies ever made - comes this action packed thriller about drug dealing and ruthless murder. The film has also a strong adventure-oriented impact that makes other adventure-films as the Indiana Jones-trilogy look like The Adventures of Winnie Pooh (oops - I'm not even sure how to spell this cuddly bear...). Michael Berryman and Richard Lynch give fine performances, and make sure you get the strong uncut version of this film: unfortunately, it was released in two different cuts, the more common one looks like an arbitrary action movie, while the rare version is packed with gross gore FX that strengthen the impact of this enjoyable pic.

Goofs

During the intro titles as the camera is following the woman holding the baby, as she steps onto an escalator there is a man behind her wearing a grey T-shirt who is carrying a shoulder bag with a red strap. However as the camera shot changes to show her getting off at the end, the man is suddenly now in front and can be seen stepping off and walking ahead of her.


Alternate Versions

There were 2 different versions of this film made for different markets. The first version was a straight forward action film, which was made for the US market (to get an R certificate) and for countries like the UK where censorship restrictions where problematic. However the director filmed several additional extra gory scenes for use in Italy, Japan and other countries that demanded a "stronger" version. These included alternate takes on the intro fight scene, the drug house massacre and the raid on the jungle camp, which featured additional violence nudity and gore. The US DVD by Anchor Bay is of the extra gory version, however the extra gore scenes are presented in Italian language with English sub-titles. They claim that the the extra-gory version was never dubbed into English (actually the whole film was primarily shot in English in "live" sound recording), however the Hong Kong VCD of this version was presented in English, indicating that full English language prints of this version did exist.
