    Can someone tell me whether the R2 version has all of the extras of the R1 version?

    I was contemplating buying the R4 version but was told that some of the extras mentioned on the box were actually missing, is this the case with the R2 version?

    Thanks.

    The following extract from www.michaeldvd.com.au compares R4 with R1. It doesn't mention R2, however, many Aussie DVDs are identical to R2 (dual region coded) and their version of "Contact" has Arabic subtitles like ours does, which suggests that they are probably one and the same:


    Contact: Best Version - R1
    Reason: Extras-substantially more
    The R4 is loaded with extras but leaves out the best extra of the lot - a documentary on the making of the opening sequence.

    Thanks,

    The doc' on the opening sequence was the bit that I wanted.

    Suppose it is R1 then unless anyone else can tell me otherwise.

    Hi,

    Does the R2 version have the special features like the R1 version ?
    Or is it identical to the R4 version (without the features ?)

    The features I am talking about are;

    The Making Of The Opening Shot (20 minutes)
    The Making Of The NASA Machine Destruction (6 minutes)
    The Making Of The Harrier Landing (9 minutes)
    (these are missing from the R4 version)

    Thanks Russ
