The local Korean version of this film is approximately 90 seconds longer than the International release; a sequence was removed near the end of the film (at about the 100-minute point). This is reflected in the DVD releases, as the Tartan R2 (UK) release and the Columbia/Tristar R1 (USA) release use the International cut of the film, while the Bitwin R3 (Korean) DVD uses the original cut.
