'Face/Off (UK Import)' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of the 'Face/Off (UK Import)' has been posted. He says this UK Blu-ray edition is strong, with impressive video and an excellent PCM 5.1 audio track. Whether it's worth importing depends on how much you want the supplements.

Nice review, but you probably should have noted that the UK edition is cut, having had seven seconds of John Travolta's character playing with the butterfly knife (glorification, apparently) excised from all versions, including this one. The footage is in the Paramount HD DVD.

FYI,

I own the German BD of "Face/Off" at that's definately uncut, i.e. the knife scene is presented in full.
Otherwise it's identical to the UK disc.

I really think the review should mention this. I can vouch for the fact that the footage is indeed cut on this disc.

I guessed you haven't watch enough movies.

Anyhoo, I was wondering if any of the people here who are reviewing HD/Blu-ray movies have a Blu-ray/HD player on their computer. That way it's better to judge the video quality by saving the images.

What import versions of the Blu-ray are all-region & uncut besides the German version?
