USA - average bitrate video 27.0 mbps
UK release - average bitrate video 20.0 mbps

people are saying they are practically the same but on paper the usa version wins

The sound is terrible on my copy in a lot of scenes, makes the film unwatchable. Anyone else's got sound problems?

but the US 2D version has all the same issues as the UK version and so dose the Nordic version. so no matter which version you buy unless you can see it in 3D you going to be disappoint by the PQ

I understand that on paper the US version is technically the best option at this moment.

I disagree, the 3D version looks WAY better than the 2D on the UK release

So is anybody else having sound issues on the 2D version or have I just bought a dodgy copy?

There is only one track on the UK release. Doesn't matter if you are watching it in 2D or 3D. Could you describe the problem?

I think its safe to assume the US release has a better 3D encode as none of the US buyers are reporting any issues with PQ and say it looks great. Seeing as I got my UK copy using voucher I may double dip on US release but not at the moment.

I got the US version for the better extras and - so far - the PQ on the 2D version looks very good.

It's in certain scenes, it's like the sound is jittery, cutting off for 1second then back on again then repeat, keeps doing it through a lot of scenes through the 2nd half of the film. The sound is really bad during the mini gun scene.

Most likely its the audio drop out problem. Read back a few pages.

Yeah a few players are being affected by that issue even on the US disc.

Make sure, if possible, that your player's firmware is up to date. Is it a Sony player?

I have the LG BD650, don't know how much different of a machine it is but there were no audio dropouts for me on the uk Dredd disc. It did however occasionally make a disc whirring sound like it does when you search or skip which none of my other Blu-rays do.
