I received this DVD this week from www.blackstar.co.uk. It is released by FOX/Pathé and sports a terrific 16x9 transfer which smokes the R1 release. It also is DD 5.1. I have compared the R1 against the R2 on my 7.5 foot screen and I no longer own the R1, I sold it the day after the comparison. The transfer of the R2 is absolutely stunning. The UK release also has the commentary track and the trailer which the R1 had so there was no reason to it.
