Censuring The Censors

Predator

    As far as we are aware, the master used to create this DVD has come from an Eastern European country - exactly which one we aren't sure of as yet. This has left us with a slightly cut version of the film, despite both the UK and Australian censors passing this film uncut for theatrical release.

    From what I can discern, the only cut that occurs is at 25:46, where the scene ends early as another soldier is about to attack Dutch. But, as the next scene shows, he is walking out of the base with Dillon. This ruins the film in my view, as the (in)famous "Stick Around" line has bitten the dust in this cut.
