    Yes, thanks to the BBFC changing policy, there will be a theatrical 12 rated DVD release and a 15 rated directors cut (same as US R rated version).

    Whether you like this film is not really the point. Its the fact that this policy revision could improve a good many new titles and re-releases of back catalog material.

    I agree with that except now you've got to be careful that you get the uncut version as opposed to the Cut one. If it means more titles get a little more adult and violent etc that can only be a good thing!

    Xusia,

    I was informed that:

    a) the Director's Cut will be given an "18" rating in the UK. (Can anyone confirm or deny this, as I've already seen adverts stating it to be an "18"?)

    b) that both versions are still rubbish. Having not seen the film, though, I probably shouldn't comment! ;)

    If the 15 / 18 UK version is the same as the US 'R' Rated version, then what's the US 'Unrated' Director's Cut?

    Couldn't agree more, and the DC will be a 15 acc to the BBFC website.

    Right, in the US Buena Vista is distributing KA. The Theartrical version was rated PG-13. The Direrctors cut is unrated. Am I right in thinking the Buena Vista have a policy of not releasing unrated material? Strange and contradictory.

    Anyway, as were not such a bunch of pussies here in the UK, the directors cut has happily got a 15, which seems to be the way for most violent action films these days. You seldom get an 18 rated movie in this genre. Last one I recall was The Punisher (and it's not difficulot to work out what scene earnt it that)

    Last I saw the US directors cut has an R rating, rather than being unrated.

    Thats what I thought, but I edited my post after seeing cover art on "the Digital Bits" showing an unrated version.

    Its the usual Bull**** from Buena vista - They did the same with Bad Santa they released an 'Unrated' Version as Badder Santa longer directors cut - But this directors cut was given an R rating by the MPAA. People see the Unrated tag on the box and thing they are getting someting really extreme and rush out and buy it :laugh:

    So can we clarify here, please, which is actually the least censored version of this? I'm a bit confused by the contradictions. :confused:

    Get either the R2 directors cut rated 15 cert Or the R1 directors cut rated R (labeled as Unrated :nono: ) Or there is a R3 as well plus there bound to be an R4 - so go for the cheapest one. I think ? The R2/R3/R4 come with DTS and the R1 doesnt? but not sure.
