First things first I love this movie. One of my fave Arnie movies but this version is cut to shreds. It has always been an 18 (going back to video days)so why the cuts in this version?
The cuts are as follows (that I could tell);
The guy with the bins at the beginning gets shot but the part where Bill Duke approaches him and fills him with more lead is removed.
The guy getting his neck broken on the plane has been removed but the elbow in the face remains.
Cooke getting impaled on the table leg completely removed.
While Matrix is setting the bombs around the buildings he grabs a soldier from behind and stabs him quite fiercely in the stomach,the stab is removed.
Silly things like Matrix discarding empty guns (pump action and a handgun) have been removed.
Some of the huge shoot out at the end (Matrix vs endless amount of soldiers) is edited and trimmed badly.
The tool shed scene may as well been cut altogether, the fork in the chest, arm cut off with the axe have been completely removed and crap edits to the buzzsaw blade throwing.
The fight between Matrix and Bennett has been poorly edited.
The steam pipe through Bennett has been completely removed.
It is some of the worst editing in a film I have ever seen.
Because of the above reasons I have now bought the region 1 version which runs at 90 minutes (region 2 85 minutes) If they had left this movie alone I would have given it 5 stars, but as it has been said before this feels like a 1992 we wont let you see any action tv edit. Another great film ruined by the UK censors.
Save your money or buy region 1.Commando  [DVD
