    Hi,

    Okay. so most people know that the British version of "Daredevil" is not the most complete version that exists, and that the distributor's pre-censored the film for violent content.

    However, has anyone else noticed, that whilst the US running time of 103 minutes, and the UK running time on DVD is equal to 99 minutes, (which would be correct, including 4% PAL pulldown speed factor), that UK copies of the film have a blue sticker on the front, claiming "New Uncut Version"?!

    So, what's this all about?! i was under the impression that the UK VHS/DVD release was the same as the pre-cut cinema version, and the only way to get the original uncut version, was to import the R1, or R4 versions. Can anyone tell me what the hell Fox is playing it please?

    Pooch

    May mean it is un-cut from the cinema. Where as as Licence to Kill was cut from the cinema realise.

    This was already discussed in the thread about 'headbutts' recently.
    The r2 version is the same as the r1 version.The film was cut at the cinema here but reinstated for home viewing:eek:
