To me, this is ok as it is the only way to get the full uncut version of the film.
Goldblatt provides us with an excellent commentary. He knows how to tell a story, his story, and he does it very well. We learn about all sorts of things here and he expands on some of the stuff from the featurette that his is in. I had no idea, until this release, that this film was shot, wholly, in Australia. When I looked at the licence plates I can tell, but before that, never knew. He also talks about how he loved shooting in Australia and how they got some of the stunt men from Hong Kong. Great commentary.
THE PACKAGING [3 out of 4]
Umbrella Entertainment has given us a nice package in the form of this blu-ray. We get the 3 versions of the film (two are not in the best of shape, but are watchable) and we get some worthwhile extras. The picture and sound are good and the film is cheesy 80s goodness. I would recommend this to anyone that likes action films and/or 80s action films. Definitely worth the money.
