Default Underworld Dutch Release

The Dutch release of the theatrical cut of Underworld has now been released and is available at Xploited for $26.95.


http://xploitedcinema.com/catalog/un...e-p-13236.html

Disc Features:
# Anamorphic (16:9 1080p Hi-Def) Widescreen (2.35:1) Version (Theatrical Version)
# English DTS-HD 5.1 & English 5.1 Dolby Digital Audio Options
# Optional Dutch subtitles
# "Fang vs. Fiction" documentary
# Outtakes
# "Look of Underworld" featurette
# "Visual Effects of Underworld" featurette
# "Designing Underworld" featurette
# "The Evolution of Underworld" featurette
# Filmclips 11 Cast and Crew Interviews
# Trailer
# TV Spots
# B-Roll
# Music Video

I personally have the German extended cut of this film and I'm impressed so far with the list of special features included on this Dutch disc. For a comparison, the German Extended Cut features zero special features.

Some people might be worried because this being a Dutch release with the possibility of a non-VC1 transfer, but I assure you the Dutch release of Saw III looked fantastic. I'm considering ordering this copy as well for my collection.

I must say that I'm personally impressed with the low priced import Dutch releases so far. Being able to grab these great flicks at reasonable prices isn't the norm in our "HD Import" era.

How much additional footage is in the German version? I'm debating which to get, and usually special features aren't as big a deal to me as additional, in-movie, footage. Thanks.

Spoiler alert..... The extra footage is about 10mins. Some extra stuff with Cravin and the blonde bimbo vamp, some extra footage with Kate in the libary, and a extended end battle. Nothing to out standing sadly. I had the extended dvd so I bought the German HD. I am so use to seeing the extra footage now.

Can anyone report on the quality of this if they get it? I was planning to get one or the other, and was frankly leaning toward the extended version (which I've never seen). I was also a bit scared off by this being a Dutch release. But if the extra/alternate footage doesn't add up to much--especially if it mostly features Kraven and the horrible actor who plays him (gag)--and this one looks fine, and it's cheaper...not much of a contest.

I got the German extended cut on HD DVD. Not big into extras.

Sorry but I'm not seeing what in the Dutch release features list equates to having the same length and the extra footage. Can you clarify?

Does anyone have both versions yet and can clarify if the Dutch version has the extended footage and whether one version looks better than the other?

that what I was saying... according to xploited both versions are the same length (could be a mix up). I personally have the German HD DVD, but it's currently at my apartment and i'm home on xmas break... so I can't check it out.

I know personally that the German release has very impressive PQ, but has "NO" extra features.

I have the Dutch release of Saw III and it has extremely impressive PQ as well...so I wouldn't be put off by this Dutch release. It is cheaper as well.
