The BBFC noted:

  • Cut required to scene of sexual assault on young girl to address the specific danger that video enables the scene to be used to stimulate and validate abusive action.

Further details were supplied after an email query to the BBFC:

The cinema version was passed '18' uncut following expert legal advice. Nevertheless the Board was concerned by the film's climactic scene, which shows an under-aged girl - played by a 13 year old actress - being raped. Our legal advice confirmed that the scene was not indecent within the meaning of the Protection of Children Act 1978 and the Board therefore agreed to pass the scene intact.

The Board also took the opinion of a leading consultant clinical psychologist at the time of the original cinema submission. He expressed a concern that, in his clinical experience, the rape sequence could potentially be used by paedophiles to 'groom' their victims. The Board was satisfied, however, that this concern about potential abuse was minimal in the context of an adult cinema release where the possibility of children being taken to the cinema for grooming was remote.

Videos, by contrast, are more easily accessible for personal use by abusive individuals and the risk of the video's use for grooming was felt to be far higher. Furthermore, the potential for the scene to be played repeatedly and out of context on video concerned the Board far more so than on film. It was felt therefore that, on video, the scene presented a particular problem as both stimulus material and to validate abusive behaviour. The Board's concerns were confirmed by a further opinion from a second consultant psychologist specifically in relation to the video release, which echoed the opinion of her colleague. The scene was therefore removed in its entirety on video.

12 cert UK: The Extended Explosive Edition/Extended Cut was passed 12 for one use of strong language and moderate violence after BBFC suggested cuts for:
Note that the 15 rated UK release is due to one of the commentary extras being 15 rated rather than being an uncut version of the film.

The BBFC cinema cuts to 2 uses of 'fuck' still apply. The extended version introduces a 3rd occurrence of 'fuck'. This has been allowed to remain and is noted in the BBFC consumer advice.

See pictorial version details from movie-censorship.com:

The Extended Cut provides many extensions to flesh out the narrative and reduce the overly frantic pace of the Theatrical Version. The 'fucks' in Adios, motherf*** , removed from the Theatrical Version, have not been re-integrated into the movie but there's a one scene that now features an additional 'fuck'.

  • 2010 cinema release.

The BBFC commented:

Two reels from this film were originally shown to the BBFC in unfinished form to consider language issues. The company were advised that two inadequately obscured uses of motherfucker would result in a 15 classification rather than the requested 12A . When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, the two uses of the term had been further obscured and the film was classified 12A .
