Fearless (Huo Yuan Jia)

    

    This is a complex one and unfortunately I cannot be completely categorical. There are four cuts available of this film; a US theatrical cut, a US unrated cut, a Thai cut and a director's cut. It would seem that the theatrical cut is what is included on our DVD (I have no comprehensive evidence for this) but the differences between the theatrical and unrated cuts are reported to be very small. The Thai cut includes an extra fight with a Thai style fighter and the directors cut runs about 40 minutes longer. None of the cuts seem to have specifically been made due to feedback from censors.
