I'd like to know how long this "unrated" cut is. From what I've read, it wasn't cut for a rating, it was cut for being something like four hours long. Granted, this movie (which I liked) doesn't need to be four hours long, but I suspect this unrated cut business is just some lazy marketing B.S.
Still might get it, though, via an eventual discount.
A let down considering the talent involved. I am looking forward to giving it a second shot with the extra footage, although I doubt 12 extra minutes will even begin to fix the problems with this movie.
Utter crap. Painful to watch. RZA should never have cast himself in the lead role. Only a couple of good support roles and that is literally the ONLY saving graces to an otherwise god-awful attempt at something decent.
