    Not having purchased the Die Hard Ultimate collection yet, as I already have the R2 versions,<br />I was intrigued to notice the run times of Die Hard 2 R1 and R2. Now stay with me on this one,<br />both have the same run time of 123 minutes, but we all know that R2 run times are approximately<br />4% shorter than R1 due to the difference in frames/sec.<br />So if the R2 run time is 123 minutes then I would expect the R1 to be approx 5mins longer ie<br />128 minutes, or the other way round if R1 is 123 mins then R2 should be 118 mins. <br />What I want to know is a; is the R1 version actually shorter or b; have they simply quoted <br />the incorrect run times on the covers on one or both of these DVD'S.

    The run times are incorrect.

    Hi,

    Dirk's correct. On the Region 1 editions:-

    "Die Hard" runs for 131 minutes approx, and

    "Die Hard 2" runs for 124 minutes, if my memory serves me.

    Pooch

    <br />P.S. Don't get annoyed if my info is not as accurate as you would like. I'm young, nieve, and my memory ain't that great! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
