The UK theatrical release was cut, after the uncut version initially received a '15' classification from the UK censor board; the distributors opted to remove moments of strong violence (shootings, stabbings, a pole being used to dislocate a man's arm and sight of blood dripping from a character's mouth) along with a scene of torture in which a man's fingers are extracted below screen were removed. This cut version was re-classified '12A' and was released into UK cinemas, however the film was later released uncut on DVD with a '15' rating.
