    Okay, Clones is a sweet movie, much better then Phantom Menace, and a homage to the original trilogy. But why has the region 4 dvd been fucked up...again? Phantom Menace had very dodgy editing (compared to the VHS release) and now Clones has come out. It comes with a 'limited edition' box (sweet) but low and behold, it had to be edited![​IMG] [​IMG] The R4 release is missing approximately 6 minutes, and gained an M (mature) rating instead of the VHS' PG rating!! [​IMG] [​IMG] This is the last time i buy star wars on R4!

    compared to the R1 release...no one has complained about small missing parts...maybe im just paranoid but still, i remember little parts that arent there...mainly any parts that had any REAL violence [​IMG]

    Could this be the result of PAL-speedup?

    PAL speedup drops approx 5.72 minutes. Bet that's it

    The R4 version is uncensored. The time difference is due to PAL speed up. I would have thought a search of the various R4 review sites would have cleared up any problems easily and quickly.

    The only versions which is cencored is the British R2 version. It misses 2 seconds on the headbutt of Jango Fett. All the other versions, including the R4 , are uncensored.
