On its first run past the Australian classification board, the film was rated R. To garner a wider audience, Hoyts removed approx. 1 minute of footage so that the film could get an M rating. The footage removed included the "condom" scene with the old jailer, all references to homosexuality and snitches being "turned out", the scene outside the porno theater where the Nicky Carr's right-hand man guns down the bystanders after the cops and the Russian roulette scene in the police station. this footage was never reinstated for the film's VHS or subsequent DVD release.
$3,017,800 (USA) (8 May 1988)
