FILM FACTS: Max Hell Frog Warrior verses Toad Warrior:
The film Toad Warrior was initially released to Malaysia, the Philippines, and Japan for theatrically presentation only. This film was never supposed to be released in the U.S. as the filmmaking team of Jackson and Shaw never liked the final cut. For this reason, they held back on its U.S. release while they went on to create other feature films—planning to eventually reedit it. During this interim, somehow a distribution company got hold of a copy of Toad Warrior and illegally released the film. Eventually, this version was taken off the market. But, as the film was already in wide distribution, all Scott Shaw could do, to protect the integrity of the film, was to release an Official Version of the movie.
So yes, Toad Warrior and Max Hell Frog Warrior are two films based upon a similar source. They each, however, have unique segments of footage that the other one doesn't have and the two films present a somewhat different conclusion.
For the record, Max Hell Frog Warrior is the recommended version of the film.
You can now own the four separate versions of this film: Toad Warrior, the original edit, Max Hell Frog Warrior, the intended release version of this film, Max Hell in Frogtown: A Zen Speed Flick, and Max Hell Frog Warrior: A Zen Rough Cut. Each film presents different scenes and a slightly different storyline.
