    Does anyone know anything about this?

    already have the R1, but liked the film, so wouldn't mind getting the DTS, but worried about what the picture is like! I don't know who the distributor is, so hard to tell if the quality will be any good.

    The smell is strong with this one. Its slipped under the radar which normally means horrendous. But for £5 you cant complain, will give it a go.

    It is much better than the first film, although it does lose its plot now and again, but overall I liked it.

    Although I wouldn't have bought it if it had been double the price!

    just ordered mine for £5.49. Not many extras, but looks like it should have a nice box.

    Gave it a spin the other day. Sound track was Quite nice, good metal songs in it :cool:
    Picture quality seemed decent, although only watched it on 32"tv
    And the actualy film wasnt too bad either. Definatly worth whatever i payed, + disount.
    Quite long also, was it over 2 hours?
    You think there will be a sequal?

    Anyway, my copy wont be going on ebay, I'll be keeping this one!

    Ps. What rating was this at the cinema? Quite abit of stabbing scenes and unforgiving violence, its definatly not one for the kids! Which in quite happy with ;)

    It was rated 18 in the UK.

    Is it true that this title is Region Free as its looks like a perfect xmas present for my brother along with the ROTK EE but he can only playback R2 discs so if anyone who has it can let me know it would be really helpfull.

    PowerDVD says this:

    Player Information:
    Player Region Code: 2
    Current Drive: F:
    Title Region Code: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

    And box says Region ALL, NTSC.

    So make sure thge dvd player and the tv are both capable of playing NTSC. The dvd player will probably be ok. But many old TVs can't, Most new ones can. -Just realised you probably dont need to be told this ;)

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for making sure it was Region Free, will be putting in a order for it now.

    Also, thanks for the warning but already aware of that and my brother shouldnt have any trouble with it as he only bought a 32" Widescreen TV last year.

    According to dvdcompare, this is what the Region 0 and Region 1 versions look like...

    So if you want a DTS track, get the Region 0 release but if you want more extras then get the Region 1 release.

    the R1 looks like a better DVD, but can't get that one for £5.49! Plus the movie isn't quite good enough to warrant watching loads of extras about it, i got mine for the price, and the funky box :laugh:
