    Well, the comparison says there are no cuts, just that the black & white section is in colour on the Jap / Korean versions, but how come the R1 runs for 111 minutes, and the 'uncut' Jap version is 113 minutes, according to info on CD Wow?

    I have read that the Asian versions have 2 extra minutes, no idea if they're extra violent scenes or merely talkie additions.

    What I'm hoping that means is that the Chinese subs are optional, and that the subs burned into the actual movie would still be in English. I haven't actually seen the film yet, but I gather the subs in the movie are English, to cover Japanese spoken language?

    But if its an asian release the subtitles would have been replaced with Japanese subtitles unless its Hong Kong in which case it might have english subtitles burned in as Hong Kong is also an english speaking place.

    The main audio on the Region 3 is DTS English, so when the Japanese spoken bits come up, they wouldnt have Japanese subs burnt in. It would be either English or Chinese and from experience of other R3's Ive had I would put money on English. The fact that only Chinese selectable subs are on the disc (apparently) would back this up.

    Still for £6.99 from cdwow who cares!

    Wuold be interested to know about the R3 but the R1 has two sets of English subtitles, one for the whole movie and one for just the Japanese speaking parts. I wonder if CD-WOW could confirm what the R3 has (if they have received stock yet)?

    To be fair £6.99 was with the benefit of a couple of codes before the price went up to £9.99.

    I suppose we cant be sure until it arrives on someones doormat but surely if you are watching the movie in English, via the DTS sound then there must be some translation for the Japanese speaking bits, I would think burnt on, rather like watching it in UK cinema.

    CD wow would probably have it in stick tomorrow (Tues) as its released on Weds 7th in S-Asia territories. As soon as my comes I will post on it.

    I think it's just to get us talking about it, like the contents of Marcellus' briefcase.

    No, neither do I, but I had kind of gleaned from the discussion that the probability is that the R3 version from CD Wow has optional subs, apart from the parts burned into the movie. :confused: If not, it will be on e-bay quicker than s**t through a goose! :laugh:

    Which version are we talking about with the bleeps? :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Considering the amount of fuss over the lighting effects in Saving Private Ryan, I imagine these beeps and the Black and White fight sequence will have people returning their DVDs in their droves.

    I am still unsure wheather to buy the Jap version or go for region 1 because I saw the film at the cinema and thought it was good, the price is £10 cheaper and I can put that towards Payback and last samurai.
    The only reason I opted for the jap version was because thought it might be worth money in later years and most people would be getting region 2 so miss out on the 2 extra miniutes but will the extra 2 miniutes and a cartoon in full colour be worth the extra £10?

    The beeps are in all versions including the theatrical releases. Just QT being QT.

    I thought the B&W sequences were quite good and featured in all releases other than R3. This was a decision made by QT.
