    It actually has a PG-13 rating in the United States, not PG. It had to be submitted to the MPAA board four times before it finally was downgraded from an R rating.

    As long as the theatrical release is on the disc too - i'll say go for it. (I really want the theatrical release of everything in my collection)

    (See the long Star Wars thread, or smaller mono soundtracks, Beauty and the Beast etc threads [​IMG])

    I know, but I didn't want to edit the quote, since it was from the director himself....maybe he categorizes all ratings that start with PG as PG.

    Hopefully the new cut will include the scenes where Urich was working with the police chief to expose Fisk. One of the few things I didn't like about the theatrical cut was that all of a sudden everybody knows Fisk is the Kingpin and there is no explanation given as to why (except for Murdock himself knowing due to Bullseye).

    Having just seen this last night, I can't wait for this disc. I loved the movie, but it did seem like a lot was cut out. I will be getting both releases. I really want the Director's Cut, but I'll need the theatrical to tide me over.

    Since Jon Mercer (see below) asked me very politely not to rain on any ones daredevil parade.. I have decided to move my DD opinion to the correct spot. Thanks for not being rude.

    Just in case you were wondering though...

    I didn't really care for the movie, partly because it felt like there was 20-30 minutes of important footage left on the cutting room floor. So if this so-called Director's Cut restores all of that, it could be a much more coherent film and definitely worth getting on DVD. But I'm not gonna get my hopes up that we'll ever be seeing it. Fox and Brian Singer had two chances to release an extended cut of X-Men and chose not to.

    It is interesting that the theatrical version will be a 2 disc edition as well. What I'm curious to know is if any of the special edition material will overlap with the eventual director's cut edition or if it will be like the LOTR releases.

    Daredevil, frankly, felt like they went into production a draft too early, everything was there, but the usage and pacing was off.
    Indeed there were many plot holes and eyebrow raising moments that made me feel like a great deal was cut out. I'll be very interested in this director's cut.

    I can honestly say I had no problem with the fight scenes, except for the one at the beginning, which was just a bit too dark, but mainly was just not edited very well. As for the rest of the movie, there did seem to be significant cuts made, and I look forward to the director's cut.

    I really think Fox must have tampered with this flick.

    If they had not, would there even be a "director's cut"?

    Since it had to be resubmiited to the MPAA so many times over the violence, I wonder if the first fight scene was darkened just to muzzle the figting on screen and appease the MPAA. Just an out there idea.....such things have been done before.

    Howie - not trying to start anything here, but if you didn't like the movie you should state that in the movie section, this thread was obviously started by and for the people who enjoyed the movie enough to care about the DVD release (which you made very clear you are not)
    I for one enjoyed the movie and will look forward to the directors cut.[​IMG]

    While the "Director's Cut" will contain 30 minutes of addition footage, I wonder if he will take some out as well. Like they did with Pearl Harbor.

    Hmmm....If it was just adding scenes and not taking any away, I would only go for the extended edition, but I may have to buy both, if they take things out of the extended version.
