    I've heard that future DVD/video versions of this film will have the closing scenes - where the terrorist bombs knock down all those NYC buildings - edited out.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    I doubt it. They're only editing new movies, becuase old movies are a product of their time

    The movie doesn't take place in NYC, and those buildings aren't in NYC. But, you never know with the censorship people. Also, if they edit it out, then the ending would be for nothing. It would be ruined. Unless the go with the orignal, book ending.

    Even if Peter hadn't just confirmed that the film would be left intact, think about what you're saying for a minute. You would have to cut the entire ending to really keep those buildings from being blown up--and the film wouldn't make much sense either.

    And some of the buildings, though re-arranged, are in Century City (LA).

    That kind of reminds me of the Kentucky Fried Movie.

    When the news was describing Osama Bin Laden's terrorist network as a group of independent cells, it reminded me of the scene in Fight Club when Jack spills his guts to the cops:
    "This is a tightly regimented organization, with many cells capable of operating independent of central leadership."
    Pretty chilling. [​IMG]

    The difference being that they were taking out the international credit/banking centers, not kill innocent people. In FC they made sure that the buildings were vacant before blowing them up.
