The 1994 UK video certificate was initially rejected by the BBFC. It was then passed later the same year after 7 minutes 32 secs of distributor edits and a further 1 min 28 secs of BBFC cuts which removed nearly all the violent fight footage including head kicks and punches. The cuts were fully restored in the 2004 Hollywood DVD release. See more »
Rowdy Roddy Piper stars as tough guy police officer who joins forces with martial arts expert/vigilante Billy Blanks to bring down mobsters, who have kidnapped Piper's journalist squeeze(Bobbie Phillips) and Blanks's sister much action and karate chops fly. Billy Blanks and Roddy Piper's charisma (notice I didn't say acting) lifts what would be just another throwaway action flick which consists off the team up two tough guys with different styles, however as expected Back In Action features tons of admittedly spectacular action sequences which always offers a big bodycount. Admittedly all of this is silly, most of it predictable and derivative but Back In Action certainly lives up to its title and fans of the genre will enjoy the big bodycount which compensates for all the shortcomings Back In Action contains.
