    I just thought that people with the ability to play region 2 discs might be interested to know that one of my favourite van damme movies,HARD TARGET is available on dvd in europe and australia (region 4) in the unrated version before the MPAA got their hands on it.In the r-rated version most of the gunplay violence has been reduced in length by almost half and the opening pursuit of binder and chances'final fight with fouchon have also been reduced.

    I can do PAL but I prefer NTSC. Is there an Asian NTSC release that is uncut?

    I'm not sure if there is an uncut NTSC version available.

    I seem to recall hearing a rumour that Anchor Bay might get the rights to release this uncut in region 1, no idea if it's ever going to happen though. Wishful thinking I guess.[​IMG]

    From what I understand, the HARD TARGET DVD's referred to above are definitely longer and more violent, but they still fall a little shy of Woo's full-length cut.

    Unfortunately the R2 version isn't anamorphic and looks like a straight transfer from a laserdisc. Amazing soundtrack though.
