Best of the Best II (1993) Poster

Alternate Versions

In the UK, the unabridged version was released on DVD in 2005.
For the 2007 American DVD release, the few seconds of previous cuts were wavered (such as the half second close up shot of James's left ring and pinkie finger shot off) and the film maintained an R rating.
The 18-rated UK release of this film had 1 minute 31 seconds pre-cut by the distributor. The cuts are as follows:
  • The duel between Tommy (Philip Rhee) and the Asian, ponytailed gladiator has been severly shortened for the U.K prints. A lengthy segment of the fight in which the gladiator uses two pairs of silver nunchakus is missing.
  • The scene lasts twice as long in the uncut version, which has been shown in the past on Sky. The version currently screening on Bravo, however, appears to be the same as the video except for an extra shot of James (Tommy's native brother) having his finger blown off - which isn't in Sky's print.
The close-up half-second shot of James's fingers being shot off has been cut from the American video releases, but has recently appeared in the ActionMax (Cinemax's partner channel) version on cable TV.
