to OP:
and either one you get is gonna be a great movie... judging by the North American release i have there shouldnt be a big big difference... i mean... theres no swearing you'd be missing out on, there for sure way more than 13 minutes of action so there shouldnt be much thats cut out

The UK version (121 min) corresponds to the theatrical version (R-Rated) which was released in the US only on DVD. There were in fact three different DVD versions in the US: The R-Rated theatrical version (121 min), an unrated extended version (134 min), which I both have, and a Superbit edition that contained the R-Rated version only (121 min). On blu-ray just the unrated extended cut was released in the US, thanks Sony, not the R-Rated version. In the UK Sony apparently released only the R-Rated version. Might have something to do with the good work of the BBFC maybe, I don't know.

I think the only difference I can remember between rated and unrated versions of this film was a little more sideboob from that blonde, that's about it. I didn't remember any extra action. Sweet freakin' movie!!!

I've got theExtended Cut version (Italian) and movie lenght is 134 min + 2 hours of special contents. Quality is top level. I'm pretty sure is the same then US edition. Video 2:35:1, Audio PCM 5.1, Dual Layer disk.

The UK version is encoded in mpeg2 and not mpeg4 like the US version.
The menu lets you choose Dolby Digital 5.1 when the disc only contains a DTS version of the sound track. (The US version contains Dolby Digital 5.1 and the better PCM uncompressed 5.1).
Also the UK film is very grainy so I would get the US version like i did and if you don’t want to wait to long to get it buy from playusa but it will cost more, remember you don't pay any import tax on anything under the value of £18

http://www.playusa.com/DVD/Region_1/...-/Product.html

or from here but takes about 1 1/2 weeks from amazon.co.uk

DON'T BUY THE SHIT UK VERSION!

Definitely get the US version.

It's a better cut, better encode, better overall package. You'll be very sorry if you pick the UK cut, for these and other reasons.

And, c'mon, with an avatar like that, you should know more about the version history of Underworld.
