No wonder people illegally download movies, (not that i do, cos i like the original artwork) I try to get the uncut stuff on blu ray, but if it's not available uncut on blu ray why bother paying for low quality 'uncut' on dvd?
I wish DVD and VHS would hurry up and become extinct, they are low quality sh and have no place in my collection any more..., I only hang on to DVDs that arn't on blu ray,
I'm trying to get rid of DVDs, not add to it..
Blu ray or HD digital downloads is all I'm interested in now
There is cut, and there is cut. The old UK DVD was heavily censored for violence. Pretty much butchered worse than what Arnie did after he got out of the shed type cut. Here is the cuts from it
R2 United Kingdom- Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment - Yes - 85:34 mins. Approximately 56 seconds of missing footage in total:
- 02:01 (4 sec.) Making sure the first target is dead by shooting him again.
- 21:18 (5 sec.) John Matrix snapping Henriques's neck.
- 45:31 (14 sec.) Close up of Cooke dying whilst impaled on a table leg.
- 66:50 (1 sec.) John cutting guard's throat.
- 67:09 (2 sec.) John cutting another guard's throat.
- 67:18 (5 sec.) John killing two guards.
- 68:35 (5 sec.) John shooting two guards.
- 70:20 (4 sec.) John shooting more guards.
- 71:36 (2 sec.) John stabbing a guard with a pitchfork in the chest.
- 71:40 (6 sec.) John using an axe and a machete to dispatch two more guards.
- 79:16 (2 sec.) Bennett gets a longer electric shock.
- 79:50 (1 sec.) Pipe hitting Bennett.
- 79:55 (5 sec.) Panning shot along the pipe protruding from Bennett's chest.
Although not labelled as such, the version of Commando showing on SkyHD is the actually the director's cut. I saw this a few months ago and was quite surprised when I saw the extended bit of Arnie talking about his past to Rae Dawn Chong.
