4.0 out of 5 stars CUT!!!, 20 April 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Commando [1986] [DVD] (DVD)
Ok. Firstly this is a class action movie with Schwarzenegger at his bestbut.........its cut! Its not a subtle cut at that. Your left wondering if theDVD player just glitched.
I sat down to watch this epic and was gutted when I saw that the scene inthe aeroplane where he breaks a guys neck is removed (badly). I stoppedwatching and fast-forwarded to another commonly removed scene where hechops a guys arm off and yet again its badly cut. After that I gave upwatching it, I was wanting to see the 'greatest story ever told' not a cutup version fit for a seven o clock watershed. It gets four stars itsreally a 5/5 movie but this cut down no extras DVD brings it down. If Iwere you check out the American version it probably isn't cut. Why didthey cut it?...now that's a million pound question.

I have got the US director's cut versions which include the theatrical version and the director's cut version and these versions are the nearest versions to being uncut that you will find including never before seen footage on the director's cut version. I truely reccommend it to any die hard Commando fans. Bin the UK version buy this one.

I think it is disgraceful why adults in the UK cannot buy films how they were intended to be totally uncut. If the board of classifications think 18 is too young to watch the film uncut add another certification e.g a 21 certificate and put out a milder version of the film for 18 year olds.

They seem to do this alot. I bought 'School of Rock' and that too is badly cut. You may not like that film but there's a scene where Jack Black holds 3 fingers up and says "read between the lines!", he folds the outer two fingers down to leave his middle finger still sticking up. Thus giving his ex-band mates the bird! But you don't get to see him actually flipp them off. The scene is cut quickly and killed.
