As of 2012, all UK home video versions are cut for violence, although the video is slightly more edited than the DVD. The workshop fight loses Ryback slashing a thug's thigh, causing it bleed heavily, before Ryback stabs him in the armpit. The death of the thug who dies in the band-saw is re-edited after Ryback pushed the thug onto the work surface. Ryback kneeing the villain in the groin and the blade cutting into his shoulder has been edited, so the thug now appears to fall onto the band-saw and die off-screen. In the DVD, some of the kneeing action is restored. Ryback ripping out a man's larynx is also removed entirely, and the final confrontation removes the shot of Strannix's bloody eye socket after Ryback gouges it.
