  • Theatrical Version
  • Director's Cut
Release: Mar 04, 2010 - Author: LJSilver - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut. On the old korean DVD you can find the Theatrical Version, while on the new Limited Original Edition Box you get to see the Director`s Cut.

The Director`s Cut is about 500 seconds longer.The new Director's Cut was almost completely re-dubbed, patrially they hired new voice actors. This effort was necessary to correct some flaws in the story, giving the movie a more fluent plot in many scenes.

Examples:


  1. At the first meeting of Jay and Shua on the ship one could in the Theatrical Version get the feeling, that Jay might already have turned his back on Ecoban. In the DC with the new dubbing she simply says that she thought Shua was dead. Shua responds, that she will should leave and never come back. Therefore, the movie lays more emphasis on the scene in the sewer where Jay goes over to the rebels.


  2. In one scene, Woody calls Jay Shuas friend. At that point he can't even know anything about Jay.



The differences of the footage mainly concern smaller bits of the plot, a little more violence and a few scenes to boost the tension. Also, the huge music sequence and a few stylistic extensions offer a lot of things that are just nice to look at. In a few extended dialogues the producers tried to deepen Jay's and Simon's relationship (a point of criticism in the Theatrical Version).

00:00 min. - 00:30 min.



In the DC, the credits roll a little earlier and on a black screen, before the narrator starts to tell the prologue.


Duration: DC 30 sec. longer.









4:17 min.



The take, where Crane threatens the second worker with the gun, is minimally longer in the DC.


Duration: DC < 0,5 sec. longer.









04:23 min. - 04:27 min.



You can still see the twitching blood-smeared hand of the first worker who was shot. Then he is beared away.


Duration: DC 4 sec. longer.









10:07 min. - 10:19 min.



The conversation between Jay and Simon is a little longer in the DC. Jay say goodbye and leaves the screen. After that, there are fireworks for all the party-goers.


Duration: DC 12 sec. longer.









10:29 min. - 10:41 min.



Jay is under the shower. The scene seems well-aimed in the DC (in the Theatrical Version it starts at about 10:50 min [DC Timecode]).


Duration: No difference in time.





11:28 min.



After the alarm is sett off due to hacking the Delos-System, a short shot of the hacker wearing a mask was cut out in the DC.


Duration: Theatrical Version 1 Sec. longer.









11:47 min. - 12:08 min.



Several reedited cuts. The hacker tries to logg on to Delos. In the Theatrical Version he's succesful, in the DC he isn't.


Both shots with the bikes in the tunnel immediately follow each other in the DC, while in the Theatrical Version they are separated by the scene, where the hacker gains access to Delos. Obviously, Shua's hacker attack was unsuccsesful but he could steal some data anyway. This is shown later on in the hideout in a (re-dubbed) conversation with Dr. Noah.


Duration: DC 4 sec. longer.




DC:





Theatrical Version:






15:37 min. -15:57 min.



Simon's unit runs along the tunnel a little longer until they reach the end and face a huge abyss. Simon asks himself if the bastard has wings. The scene seems placed a little better in the DC (in the Theatrical Version it occurs at about 16:12 min. [DC Timecode]). Besides, the scene is longer in the DC. In the end of this scene there is a camera panning around the tunnel's exit to show a little more of the environment.


Duration: DC 6 sec. longer.









18:01 min. -18:03 min.



After Simon heard the shot he runs after the shot (leaving the screen). In return, the scene where the handcuffs are shot is not included in the DC. It raises the tension and seems to be a good decision.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.




DC:





Theatrical Version:






18:54 min. -18:56 min.



Jay's colleague finishes her sentence in picture in the DC (in the Theatrical Version she only finishes from off the camera)..


Duration: DC 1,5 sec. longer.









24:44 min. - 24:46 min.



The tall of the three layabouts gets miffed at Woody for trampling the cigarette.


Duration: DC 1,5 sec. longer.









25:05 min. - 18:56 min.



Moe, the small layabout, signals Woody to hide. Besides she tries to fob Shua off but finally opens the door because Shua sticks to his guns.


Duration: DC 9 sec. longer.









25:49 min. - 25:51 min.



Another shot of Moe.


Duration: DC 2,5 sec. longer.









25:53 min. -25:55 min.



Another correction of a illogical scene of the Theatrical Version:


In the Theatrical Version, the tall layabout asks for his small propeller and Moe holds a wheel out to him. Woody in fact did steal a small propeller in the Theatrical Version.



In the DC tha tall layabout asks for his little wheel (new dubbing) and Moe holds the wheel of the Theatrical Version out to him. In the following, Woody has (correctly) stolen a little wheel and not a propeller.


Duration: No difference in time.




DC:





Theatrical Version:






26:01 min. - 26:02 min.



Woody is (in the DC) shocked, that Shua reproaches him because of the theft.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.









26:07 min. - 26:14 min.



Longer shot of Woody. After that a longer shot of Shua as well as a longer shot of both of them.


Duration: DC 5 sec. longer.




26:19 min. - 26:24 min.



Woody feebly says that he understood (Shua's accusation).


Duration: DC 4,5 sec. longer.









27:10 min. - 27:44 min.



Flashback: Shua knocks at Jay's window. Jay gets up to let Shua in. He asks if she forgot where the door is. Shua tells him about Gibraltar, Jay is obviously bored. But Shua has a map.


Duration: DC 34 sec. longer.









28:09 min. - 28:11 min.



Fade out and black screen, in the Theatrical Version there is a direct transition to the next scene. In the following scene, some CGI-fog that made the scene look very "milky" was removed in the Theatrical Version (not included in the timecode).


Duration: DC 2 sec. longer.





29:55 min. -30:21 min.



The very beautiful tracking shot from the bright sky to the dark slums of Marr is shown completely in the DC while in the Theatrical Version it starts roughly in the middle (you can't see the sky anymore).


Duration: DC 26 sec. longer.









30:38 min. - 30:42 min.



The ending of the tracking shot is also missing in the Theatrical Version.


Duration: DC 4 sec. longer.





31:14 min. -31:18 min.



Moe's conversation with Woody (who in the end disappears behind Moe's back) is longer.


Duration: DC 4 sec. longer.









31:53 min. - 31:55 min.



The shot of Shua and the forger is a little longer.


Duration: DC 1,5 sec. longer.





31:57 min. -32:06 min.



After Shua left the forge he tells the forger that a "muscles job is definitely for younger ones". Then follows a slightly different order of scenes::


In the Theatrical Version Shua takes a step on the street, then some Ecoban troups arrive (which occurs in the DC at 32:52 min.). In the DC she first sees Moe, not Shua. After the troups have passed, we see the Shot of Moe from the DC in the Theatrical Version.


Duration: no difference in time.









32:24 min. - 18:56 min.



In the DC we don't see how Shua picks up and carries a huge plank as a sign (occurs in the DC at 32:56 min.).


Duration: Theatrical Version 7 sec. longer.





32:41 min. - 33:03 min.



Again a different order of scenes:


After Woody left, Moe quickly hides behind the protective wall. In both versions, Woody then picks up the glasses. Then both versions have a different shot of Moe's horrified reaction. After Woody putted on the glasses, an Ecoban soldier stands in front of him with his gun produced [DC].

Then follows another change of scene and the scene from the Theatrical Version where Shua takes a step on the street, followed by the scene with the plank from the Theatrical Version.


Duration: DC 16 sec. longer.




DC:






34:11 min. - 34:40 min.



We see some befogged windmills. The DC has some more scenes underlaid with sad acoustic music. The part that is identical in both versions (not included in the Timecode) again has a little less CGI-fog.


Duration: DC 29 sec. longer.









35:17 min. -35:26 min.



You can see Jay's bike driving around in the background before the movie cuts to the cockpit.


Duration: DC 9 sec. longer.









37:02 min. -18:56 min.

37:09 min. - 37:16 min.



Jay sneaks inside the ship.


Duration: DC 7 sec. longer.









38:03 min. -38:07 min.



In the DC, the conversation between Jay and Shua is shorter because of the synchronization. In the Theatrical Version Jay now already says that the Marrians are not their enemies. But that is a little unreliable at this point. In the DC Jay says that she thought he was dead. Shua asks her to go, never to return!


Duration: Theatrical Version 2 sec. longer.




40:06 min. - 41:42 min.



The music sequence is in the DC accentuated by psychedelic dreamlike pictures in the style of Mangas.


Duration: DC 96 sec. longer.









45:41 min. - 45:41 min.



Flashback: Simon stabs in the brutal instructor's back.


Duration: DC < 1 sec. longer.









46:03 min. - 48:19 min.



In the DC, Shua's nightmare can be seen in one piece, in the Theatrical Version it is interrupted several times by Ecoban troups that storm the ship. In the DC, these scenes follow the nightmare and are a little longer. E.g. the cool bike-scene (in the Theatrical Version after the theft of the truck) can be seen now in the DC. The DC's cutting is way more harmonic and and more fast-paced.


Duration: DC 50 sec. longer.




48:42 min. - 48:42 min.



The tracking shot begins a little earlier in the DC.


Duration: DC 0,5 sec. longer.




49:48 min. - 49:49 min.



Moe asks how they should take over the truck.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.









50:21 min. -50:26 min.



Moe searches for the documents a little longer. He points to the back where the tall guy holding a knife already waits for them.


Duration: DC 5 sec. longer.









53:25 min. - 54:10 min.



In the Theatrical Version now follows the bike-scene (in the DC right after the nightmare-sequence). In the DC, the three layabouts eat steaks. The storekeeper complains about the fact that they are unable to pay. After that you see Shua and Ecoban troups creeping up on the hideout where the truck is currently unloaded.


Duration: DC 13 sec. longer.









54:20 min. - 54:27 min.



In the Theatrical Version now follows the scene of the Ecoban troups sneaking up. In the DC Moe says something before the tall guy tells him to open the box.


Duration: DC 3 sec. longer.









60:37 min. - 60:45 min.



A short relaxing scene of water dripping from a pipe.


Duration: DC 8 sec. longer.









60:59 min. - 61:00 min.



Shua wipes away some blood from his labial angle.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.









61:52 min.



In the DC the scene of water shooting from the pipes is not included.


Duration: Theatrical Version 2 sec. longer.









62:10 min. - 62:11 min.



But the shot of the water floating out of the pipe is a little longer in the DC.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.









62:27 min. - 62:32 min.



Alternative shot of Jay and Simon facing each other in silence. In the Theatrical Version Simon leaves, in the DC the rising water "floods" the scenery, followed by a change of scene.


Duration: no difference in time.




DC:





Theatrical Version:






63:36 min. - 63:38 min.



There's missing a shot of Jay, in return the next long shot is longer.


Duration: no difference in time.





63:57 min.



Again a missing shot of Jay.


Duration: Theatrical Version 2 sec. longer.









64:04 min. -64:13 min.

Duration: DC 9 sec. longer.










74:53 min. - 74:54 min.



A longer sequence of Shua's glider coming down.


Duration: DC 1 sec. longer.









82:28 min. - 82:36 min.



Jay's amazement was cut slightly differently. Besides some switched scenes it is importat that Jay approaches Simon when the shot is fired; also, in the DC you don't see how Simon lowers his gun. Therefore you might think that he shot first.


Duration: Theatrical Version 2 sec. longer.




DC:

DC:
