running time is 138 minutes according to Amazon Japan. It will be the extended cut with the extra Esteban scene



my comment on that: the extra esteban scene is only 48 seconds longer, so the minutes data from amazon is worthless

Crikey, the box-art is so kick-ass!!! I’d get it just for the cover.















Then again, maybe not. But it’s still a cool cover.

I got the Pai Mei version when I bought that premium box set. Believe or not, I got it for less that 35€ (including shipping). Now I need to get Vol. 1 box but I can’t find it for a reasonable price.



These’s not much difference between R1 and R2/JP dvds. JP dvd has the same main menu (in japanese) and the same chapter stops. Extras are otherwise the same but there’s a couple of japanese trailers for the film and biographies (in japanese). Optional english subs mean that you either have to keep them on the whole film or turn them on and off when there’s non-english dialogue. (I actually prefer watching movies with subs even if the language is english). No difference in picture quality.



The extended Esteban scene is nothing too special. There’s just more footage of the area. I think the “normal” version works a bit better when it comes to that scene.

I like the Elle one best.
