Bummer on the lack of Unrated cut. It will still be mine.

Never saw it in theatres, but this is a Day 1 purchase for me.

The deleted "Gang War" scene was uploaded on vimeo by the director. As a warning, it is quite violent and bloody so NSFW

The Raid 2: Berandal (Deleted Scene: Gang War) from Merantau Films on Vimeo.

Day 1 purchase. Big fan of the movie. Was very happy to see this in theaters. Probably one of the best international action movies recently.

Big fan of the first but didn't get a chance to catch this in theaters. Think I'll pick this up blind.

Didn't like this one at all save for the fight scenes. I'll drop $5 on this like the first one.

Where the hell did you find a $5 Blu?! Weird as hell that there's no unrated cut, and disappointing too. Double-dip? Wonder how long it'll take for the price on this to go down at work?

Re: The Raid 2 7/8/14 no unrated version

The Sony titles are often on sale, and those prices drop usually pretty fast. That's how I got the first one for $5.

I didn't hate it or anything, but this let me down too. I'll probably pick it up cheap down the line for some of the action scenes as well.

Re: The Raid 2 7/8/14 no unrated version

Does anyone have a Twitter account? Any word from Gareth on why the unrated version was omitted?

Good question. But if you did get a foreign import, you wouldn't be able to redeem the UV code here, would you ?

no, I wouldn't think so.

I'll just wait this out and see if an unrated HK release happens.

Re: The Raid 2 7/8/14 no unrated version

There was a panel discussion with Gareth, Iko and Julie that I watched on YouTube.

He mentioned that even though cuts were made (and scenes omitted), the Theatrical Cut is his preferred cut.

I personally don't think so.

personally I can't stand director's that placate to the demands of the MPAA when it comes to watering down violence, sex, et.al.- last time I checked the MPAA aren't filmmaker's and bowing down to their standards would not constitute 'preferred' in the mind of most directors. Some studios have the pre-screened MPAA edit as the defacto 'director's cut' not the sanitized for the masses version. Secondly MPAA ratings are only applicable for the US theatrical/home video release of films, NOT for international releases, but because some studios are cheap, they don't edit two versions.

EDIT:

someone over movie-censorship.com has stated: "Gareth Evans posted on Twitter that the UK will get the full uncut version of the movie!"

Re: The Raid 2 7/8/14 no unrated version

I was about to say, UNRATED was meant for movies like The Raid.

Don't get me started on the MPAA

Damn, so if I want the unrated cut, I have to forfeit my UV copy . That sucks. I'm sure that getting this into wide release meant the MPAA was going to force them to compromise, but I assumed that as with the first movie, there'd be an unrated video version. Damn. Rock and a hard place . At least I'm region-free.
