The Raid 2 - Only R-Rated on US Blu-ray and DVD

Only the Censored Theatrical Version on Home Video

It's a rare occasion that film fans outside of the US can pity American film buffs. Most of the time, the US get the complete and longest versions of movies while other territories aren't always so lucky. But the case of The Raid 2 is a remarkable exception. Already being censored in order to get the "R" rating for the theatrical release, one could have expected that the home video releases would solve this unfortunate situation and offer fans the unrated version of the movie. This was especially interesting for US customers since other markets such as Germany and the UK got the uncensored version from the beginning and are not affected by the MPAA censorship.

And while the first film, The Raid: Redemption, was censored for the theatrical "R", as well, and got its uncensored unrated treatment on DVD and Blu-ray (see comparison), the home video announcement for the sequel brings disappointing news. As is clearly visible on the cover scans published by the distributor, there is only the theatrical "R" version on board. The release date for the US is July 8th, 2014.
