    Should I go for the Region 1 or Region 2 version of 'LOCK, STOCK ...'. Picture
    quality, supplements and audio comparisons please if possible. I understand that
    the Director's Cut is actually an inferior version of the film than the U.S. Theatrical
    Cut! Is this correct? Thanks.

    Not sure about the R1 version, but the R2 Directors Cut has a softer image than the R2 theatrical version.

    R1 version has a nice and sharp picture with a very yellow colour cast,the extras are o.k,the cockney rhyming slang dictionary is fun.

    The film actually makes more sense in the DC version, and a lot of loose ends are tied up. The original R2 theatrical edition also had lip sync problems in the first section ("Right, let's sort the buyers from the spiers, the needy from the greedy...").
