The distribution of the project was then put on hold by Universal for almost a year, while debates went on as to whether the film would be released theatrically and then go to video, or if it should be released straight-to-video. After a very limited theatrical release in 1994 ( in Japan, and festival screenings in North America, Belgium, and Argentina ) , the movie went straight to video in 1995.

The 1994 UK Guild video release featured the R-rated print and was further edited before submission by the distributors to remove all footage of nunchakus. The 2005 Anchor Bay DVD was the complete and uncut version.
