    R1 enables one to access 3 versions of the movie via seamless branching.

    R2 features just the one version, I think the slightly longer director's cut.

    Personally I dont know which one is best as I have not seen the region 2 version in action but I have been the owner of the region 1 version of the film for a few months now and all I can say is

    AMAZING!!!!...

    You will be more than happy with the job they did on the 2 disc set :) :D :) :D :)

    I don't know, but that T2 news items was posted the day we got the official press release. Some retailer and info websites were still wrongly saying it was an 18 at that point.
