    Anyone know where I might find an uncut, English 5.1, anamorphic version of this film for sale? I've heard the German version is a good bet but I can't find anywhere to buy it from! If anyone knows of another version that I may be able to find fairly easily then please let me know. Not interested in the UK release though!

    Cheers

    The info there is wrong, they seem to have got the R1 USA and R2 UK releases mixed up.

    I own both, and the UK one featurs heavy cuts - lots of blood edited out in various scenes. Most notably in the Rocco/Lakeview scene, and the Hotel/Brothers/Rope scene.

    The US NC-17 version isn't cut at all.

    What's NC-17? Is that some kind of US clasification? I managed to get a US version from a guy trading on Amazon but it's rated R. It has the same cover as the one in the link but no mention of NC-17 anywhere!

    In answer to your question Figgy D, the film is about 2 brothers who decide to rid their town of the lowlife scum after a run in with the Russian maffia. It's very violent but also funny and well worth seeing. I'd never heard of it either until last week when a mate came back from Germany raving about it. One of the best films I've seen in ages!

    Just seen this on Amazon.ca and works out at about £7.00. Does say Rated R in the comments but is the same picture posted prev.

    And in the links it is the only US version Shown.
