    According to the BBFC, True Lies was cut for video/DVD. However, according to dvdcompare, the uncut (ie European) version was released here in error. Evidently it was never recalled.

    The Region 4 is uncut and anamorphic. Nice transfer too. Why wait?

    I got the R4 version of True Lies after hearing that the R1 Special Edition had been cancelled.

    The R4 (australian) version can be ordered from here for around £8.

    It's uncut and anamorphic but the extras are pants.

    See above :) Also I don't buy R2 - stick with R1.

    Will only buy Predator , not Predator 2 (rubbish)

    Because it has Islamic terrorists like the Sept 11 guys.

    True Lies 2 was canned for the same reason. The special edition DVD of the first was to cash in on the release of the second.
