True Lies DVD - Help with Information

Hi guys,
I’m now officially fed up with waiting for the Blu-Ray of True Lies to come out so thought I’d pick up the DVD to watch instead as I’ve not seen this film since owning it on VHS back in the day.
I’ve heard there’s an uncut widescreen anamorphic version available on R2 but I’m not sure which one it is as there’s a lot of different versions available (I’ve even seen a R4 Australian version which I think ticks all the boxes?).
Now I know most of these can be picked up for around £2 a disc but if anyone can shed any light on which version to get I’d be very great-full.
Thank you...

I have this one - can't find the receipt e-mail right now but probably paid something like a fiver for it several years ago:

The thumbnail picture on the back of the box is most similar to your third one. The listed specification states that it's 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen and after a quick spin of the disc I'm not inclined to disagree. The disc ID is 25639 / ST / G7 / R1.

Says at the bottom.

Ah perfect thank you, missed that!
So I take it I’m going for the red bannered widescreen version as this appears to be uncut (along with the fox release that I can’t seem to find) whilst the universal re-release is the cut version?

Yes I would say so. Current version on Amazon & HMV seems to be the Fox one, so would probably be ok to get that one (additional info on Amazon says Studio: 20th Century Fox).

To be absolutely safe, could get a foreign one which are all uncut eg Dutch or Spanish
