    Saw this last week at the cinema and liked it so much I ordered the R3 version on DVD, watched it last night and noticed 2 cuts, the first when the girl is shot in the back it suddenly jumps from when he gets the shotgun to a top down view, whereas in the cinema I'm sure there was a slow mo shot of her getting shot. Also when the boss hits one of his men over the head with a kosh in the warehouse again the scene jumped. Has anyone else noticed this and also are other R3 DVD edited because if they are I won't be buying anymore as this was my first purchase.
    I just find it strange in what is ideally a violent movie these 2 scenes were cut or is it because it was realistic in relation to the over the top fight scenes in the reat of the film?

    How do you think I would stand with CD Wow about getting an uncut copy for my cut copy I'm sure it doesn't state cut version on their web site?

    Think you should email them then.

    The one on their website says it is uncut and that is the one I got from them. It has got the scene with the girl getting shot and being propelled foward onto the floor.

    They should exchange no problem. Bought the R3 Kill Bill from them when they listed that it had english subs and it didn't. Opened it, watched it and they exchanged it as it was their error.

    Got the replacement yesterday put it on, and it's the edited version again!! The thing is how can you tell apart from playing it that it is cut or not? Surely there must be something on the packaging. Needless to say I 've informed CDWoW ofthe problem and hope they can resolve it.

    According the DVDCompare the only cut release is the R3 HK PAL version so as long as you have an NTSC release you should be ok.

    If it is the NTSC version you have that is cut then their info is wrong.
