The film's distributor actually self-censored the British theatrical version before submitting it to the BBFC. In addition to the footage the BBFC demanded cut, the UK theatrical release also tones down the electrocution of a villain, edited footage of visible bloodletting during the finale, omits some footage of Lopez being riddled with bullets, another head-butt, a throat chop, a villain pushing his fingers into Cash's blood wound, and Cash putting a grenade down a villain's trousers. All footage was reinstated for video.
