    The listing for the region 2 version of this film is 95 minutes but for region 1 it is 167 minutes. Have they really chopped 70 minutes off the region 2 film or is this just made up of extra features?

    Accrding to IMDB, this film runs 165 minutes. On that basis, 95 for r2 is either a mistake or a very edited version.

    Thanks for that. I've done a bit more checking and although just about every site says 95 minutes it is in fact 165. It seems that the packaging is wrong and the websites have reproduced what it says on the cover (not surprisingly). I've read some reviews rubbishing the region 2 because of the length issue but I have the feeling they haven't actually watched it as they make no mention of whats been cut. Anyway I've ordered a region 2 copy so I'll soon find out.
