Commando shot to heck


Ok i know this ones old and cheesy but i'm an Arnie fan so was quite pleased to pick up Commando on DVD for 3. I was soon pissed off though as i noticed that much of the violence had been cut out, even though it still has an 18 rating. For instance when matrix is on the plane and he elbows the black guy in the head then breaks his neck................well on the dvd he just elbows him then it quickly(and badly) cuts to the black guy being covered up. WTF? There are a few cut scenes on the DVD and i ain't got room to bitch about them all so i'll just ask if anyone else has noticed this and if so is there a special edition?
