    Rent it first.

    It's like a HBO TV Special. I felt no sympathy for the characters as they were all just a bunch of violent thieves who were arguing over land that isn't theirs. And of course violence created by disagreement over which religion they follow.

    Thank you for the advice. I think I will wait and rent it when it comes out on region 2.
    I can buy Phone Booth, DareDevil, Just Married and Final Destination 2.
    I am not working at the moment so can not buy as many as I woul like.

    I would also say rent Daredevil, same mate also seen it. Replace Affleck with a plank and the plank will probably do a better job at acting!:laugh:

    This is a review on DD..

    i personally thought it was an excellent movie, and is also a perfect addition to complement goodfella,s and casino.the sets were amazing and i found the actual historical events interesting.lastly i noticed a few cuts in the region 2 version[am i right?]and if so does the r1 differ atr all?

    hamtaro - I saw the the movie twice in the cinema and now have the r2 dvd, can you be more specific in the cuts you think have been made, maybe it will jog my memory.
