Shaolin Soccer was censored? If so what was censored?
I doubt kung-fu hustle was censored - remember, shaolin soccer was released by MIRAMAX, a studio notorious for delaying, editing the hell out of, and then delaying some more, of their international properties. recently, miramax also did a hack job with hero (lol jet-li with a katana on the movie poster).
thankfully, sony picture classics is distributing kung-fu hustle (SPC also released house of flying daggers and crouching tiger, hidden dragon), and with their given track record, I don't think anything was cut.
REMEMBER: this is all pure speculation on my behalf, going on assumptions of previous releases.
in any case, go watch this movie NOW. it was freakin' great.
ABOUT MIRAMAX'S SHAOLIN SOCCER: I never saw the US release (thankfully), but from what I heard, about 30-40 minutes were cut, including the flashback sequence in the beginning with the coach.
