    Been wondering which region to choose with this one.

    The R1 version is out on the 15th and the R2 version is out on the 25th.


    Is the R1 uncut like the R2?

    i dont think it is but the region 1 can be brought for half the price of the region 2 so you have to decide whats more important

    Rented the R1 last night. Thought it was very good. Something different. Reminded me of Seven (perhaps not quite as good though - found Gary Elwes a bit weak). And what sound !! I had to switch the sound over to DD 5.1 after watching the 1st 20mins in DTS 6.1 - it would have scared the neighbours.

    I saw this at the cinema, and thought it was brilliant.
    From reading up about the 2 versions, I think I'll go for the R2 PAL.
    Great film

    There's a comparison here of the R1 version vs. the two R2 versions.

    No problem. Personally, I plumped for the R2 uncut version as it's....uncut. However, the DTS on the R1 would be nice and the cover on the R1 is better (sad I know). :suicide:

    i went for the R1 months ago as it cost £7 from DVDSoon, i would prefer the uncut version, but it's only 8 seconds so i think i can live with it! Plus the US version has lots more extras and DTS sound, oh and a nice looking custom case, which may well just be an amaray with no paper inside it ;)

    does anyone know what extra footage the R2 contains as the above link just says it's uncut. I presume it's just longer gorier scenes?

    Whats weird is the R rated version had 2mins cut by the MPAA to avoid the NC17 rating - so what has happened to those 2mins ?? Why is the so called uncut R2 dvd only 8 seconds longer?? Unless of course they used substituted
    scenes??

    Pal DVD's run faster than NTSC DVD's. So you can have a PAL disc which has a few more minutes of footage, but still have almost the same running time as an NTSC one.

    Yes i know that but that still doesnt explain why the MPAA cut 2mins from the USA (which is in NTSC) version yet our UK 'Uncut version' (Pal)only runs 9 seconds longer than the R rated UK version(Pal) ??
    Has anyone done a scene comparison of the 2 UK releases ??
