The film has had a checkered UK censorship history. For its original cinema release, 54 secs were cut for a 12 certificate, removing all footage of nunchakus during the Rambo scene and editing the spoof Basic Instinct (1992) sex scene in the apartment. The video was rated PG and the cuts were expanded with a further 1 min 7 secs of additional edits to remove a single use of 'fuck' and the complete removal of the bedroom scene. The same print was used as a basis for the PG-rated DVD, although the distributors made a further two minutes of edits including the removal of Ramada's line "Wild, free, passionate, unbridled sex. I'd fondle you in ways you can't imagine" and even the already PG approved scene in the limousine. The UK Blu-ray version reinstates the previously cut footage and was passed 12 uncut in 2013.
