Summary
  The Hong Kong DVD is the Japanese version of the movie, not the original release. As Kuo sold the movie to Japan in the early 80s, he added the child scenes and scenes with his then current actors like Jack Long to the movie � knowing that Japanese love childs in movies and thus giving this movie more hit potential. He may have shot scenes especially for that new version, but in general he always shot much footage for his bronzemen series which not necessarily was finally used. There are still deleted scenes or still photos on lobby cards, in magazines or in the trailers. Some special info here: The German trailer for 18 BRONZEMEN consists of well-known scenes, but all are shot from a slightly different angle by supposedly a second camera
