Really? So much was cut from the original cinema release in the UK I'm surprised the UK got extra bits.

They included them to cover the shots they cut, mostly Mikey's nunchucks. The UK had areal problem with nunchucks for some reason.

The apartment fight, in the form the UK distributors initially released, plays like an early work print cut. It is sloppy. You can see all the warts. The pacing is sluggish. Shots go on for too long. One of the foot soldiers, the one who signals them for the axes, has a moment of cartoony anger. The only moment that is interesting is a little tidbit where April pulls the carpet from beneath a foot soldier.

TMNT Movie, a site which no longer exists, put it up on their You Tube channel. It may still be up.

Honestly, watching the two versions of that same scene side by side just goes to show the importance of good editing. The film's real editor, Sally Menke, went on to work with Quentin Tarantino until she passed away. She was a fantastic editor.

Video still exits on their YouTube page. Gotta admit how weird watching this (I've only seen the American version of the film). There is no cohesion to these shots and as opposed to being on extensively long scene it feels more like 4 separate fights mashed together into one big mess. Definetly seems like a work in progress than the finished film.

That version of the scene plays like an assembly cut. Nunchucks were a "no-no" in Britain at some point. Maybe they still are. I dunno.

Weird things happen sometimes when films are localized. We (the US) used to butcher foreign film with lazy dubbing, choppy insertions of American actors, swapping of music, etc.

Allegedly, one country edited Batman '89's ending to jump cut from Batman kicking the Joker over a ledge to the Joker falling, losing the final battle on the ledge.

This should be on the DVD along with the actual deleted scenes.

Why do you guys think they laughed when Micheal Angelo fell? He could have fell to his death.
