Anybody know why this was banned in Australia?

I'm running down the list of movies banned in Australia - Cannibal Holocaust, Pig F!cking Movie, Faces Of Death...stuff you would expect. And then this B-Grade action flick that would appear to be no different from anything Chuck Norris has made suddenly pops up! WTF??



Hey Mate,

The original version of this film was refused classification by the censors until the distributor made cuts to some of the more violent scenes in the film.

So really the film was toned down to get an R rating, the majority of the cuts I believe center around scenes of sexual violence.
