The original UK video version has an entire scene removed, at the end of the film the nunchuck display that Barry Gabrewski does as part of the competition is missing due to censorship rules in the UK at that time. Additional cuts were made to other nunchaku and throwing stars footage, bringing the cuts total to 4 mins 38 secs. See more »
Aaron Norris delivers a wonderful blend of kung fu fighting, day dreams and high school angst in this underrated family film. Jonathan Brandis (who was having a banner year in '92 with this and Ladybugs) dreams of being Chuck Norris' 'sidekick' in fighting terrorists, evil dictators and various other cardboard cut-outs. Why Norris you ask? Probably because they couldn't get Stallone or Schwarzenegger. This is surprisingly watchable if you don't let logic get in the way.
