Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated Director's Cut
Release: Nov 27, 2010 - Author: Doc Idaho - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB


Introduction


The demands of Revenge, based on the same-titled novel by Jim Harrison fromvon, were pretty high. Many well-known directors wanted to make it into a movie in the 80s, and when Tony Scott and Kevin Costner finally got the green light from the studio, it wasn't predictable how many problem they were going to face, how disappointed the movie audience was and escpecially how slim the amount of money was they were going to make at the box office.


During the shooting, director Tony Scott and producer Ray Stark clashed with each other very often, almost daily. Stark, who was 30 years older than Scott, was shocked and angry about the many explicit sex scenes in the movie. But that wasn't the only issue they were arguing about. The story of Revenge isn't easy to consume anyway, escpecially the question who took revenge and why was a tough one. Stark, at least that's what Kevin Costner mentioned afterwards, wanted to shoot the movie differently to make it likable to as many as possible. Scott's intention on the other hand was to create it like he'd had it in mind. That's certainly not selfish but reasonable from the artistic POV. Regardless of the result, in most cases it's just not the right way to chum up with the audience. Movies without that intention are usually more interesting. Stark was supposed to win and "his" version, which was still anything but mainstream, was shown in movie theaters.


Years later, Tony Scott got the opportunity to create his Director's Cut and release it on DVD. Even though that label released a lot of crappy different versions from several movies, the releases of many versions is really a welcome opportunity for movie lovers. Furthermore it's nice that, after so many years, director's do still care about it and restart working on old movies.


Scott's Director's Cut is a real Director's Cut with a lot of differences and it's really worth being watched. Nevertheless it's not the version Scott was going to release 15 years ago. Instead it's new version according to his current ideas, similar to Helgeland's Payback.


Possibly fans of the old version wouldn't like the new one because a lot of scenes from the Theatrical Version have been removed. He thought this footage wasn't necessary, so he cut out the details to come faster to the point. Due to the shortening and removal of many scenes, the Director's Cut is appox. 30 min shorter. Due to the modification that were made, the love affair of Cochrane und Miryea seems different in the Director's Cut. One could get the impression that it's just a fling, not real love, as the characters become aware of later on. Furthermore the ambivalence of the story is less obvious in the Director's Cut. Because of the reduced time of the character Tibey with his wife, the distracted viewer could overlook that it was him who got betrayed. As a result of that he doesn't get the sympathy he gets in the Theatrical Version. This was a main issue between Stark and Scott.


Moreover the new version needs to earn the name Unrated, so all removed sex scenes have been put in again, added by a couple of violent scenes.


For many people, the biggest point of criticism was the long two first acts, which only deal with the characters. That's where Scott started and the Director's Cut come straight to point, which makes it more accessible. Nevertheless vengeance is not the main subject of the movie, that still is the friendship of two men and Cochrane's treason. Tibey's brutal reaction is understandable Cochrane knows about it long time before it actually happens, but she just can't let Miryea loose. He's aware of his guilt, that's why he finally does not avenge himself. A future with Miryea is granted for neither of the two guys.


Unrated Director's Cut: 100 min
Theatrical Version: 123 min
(tiny shortenings of the scenes and trivial differences aren't being mentioned in this comparision, due to clarity. .)

He says he could even accept when Jay says "No" to him and explains Jay was the only person he could accept it from. Then he says Jay had saved his life on a hunting trip and they were friends since then, that's why he owed him one. Miryea excuses.

Miryea is still afflicted. When he wants to know why she just replies he knew and explains she wanted a kid so bad but he doesn't want to because he already had a dozen before Miryea was even born.

He was married but he got divorced because flying was too important to him. Then Miryea wants to know why he'd come to Mexico and he replies because of tediousness. He didn't want to be in the army after 12 years and considered it as a new chance. Miryea can understand that. The routine gets boring sooner or later. Jay also mentions she seemed different at the beach. More casual, more open-minded, just not so cold as she was at the house. Miryea laughs and says it was an appropiate behavior with all the friends he uses to invite to the house in mind and explains Jay had seen all the guests that evening.
Then she wants Jay to show her the trick with Rocky. She can also make the dog getting the biscuit out of her mouth. They laugh and says she'd also realized Jay was different than Tibey's other friends.

The Director's Cut also contains a shot of Rocky, followed by the first part of Jay's failed marriage, but she doesn't say anything about Jay's reason for being in Mexico. As a result of that they don't come closer. It's also Jay who asks if she wanted to give the trick a shot (it was her proposal in the Theatrical Version). It starts raining after the trick worked. They look deeply into each others eyes, he strokes her wet hair out of her face before she finally says she had to go.

Jay and Miryea have just had sex in his beachhouse. In the Director's Cut she is still in bed and Jay says he wished he could have her for longer than only two hours straight. Miryea says that this might work. In the theatrical version, she dresses right after the sex. She tells Jay that Tibey had an affair and it seems like this is nothing special for Miryea. Then she goes on to tell Jay that she her only sex partner had been Tibey before. Jay is not surprised. They both smile a little bashfully, since it had sounded like he could have told due to her performance in bed. Subsequently, Miryea states that Jay would probably disappear soon and that it was simply too dangerous. However, now that she found something that really makes her happy, she does not want to lose him again. He, on the other hand, is cautious. He knows that taking another guy's girl spells trouble. She is persistant and asks him if he would spend time alone with her, whenever there is a chance – no matter if he considered it right or wrong. He says yes.

Subsequently, Miryea phones her sister in Miami and asks her to pretend that Miryea was visiting her there. In the Director's Cut, the phone call is much shorter and one can only see Tibey bending an ear. In the theatrical version, one also sees Miryea first. Furthermore, she says that she had fallen in love with Jay and that she knew her husband Tibey was made. Here, also, Tibey is eavesdropping.

Jay talks about an incident he was involved with during the Vietnam War. Miryea asks why Jay would shoot an elephant. He replies that it was only an accident. They had the order to do it, since the elephants were used to carry the Vietcongs' goods. However, Jay rejected the command. The one time he shot one was an accident. Jay had a bad conscience, so he painted a small elephant on his aircraft, even though his boss did not like it. Jay says he needed the picture as a reminder of what that war was about: Killing this without knowing why – because nobody had a plan.

Then Miryea asks Jay if he loved her. He grins and says that he never intented to fall in love with her. „That's not an answer,“ Miryea replies, sits down on his lap and tells him to say „I love you, Miryea.“ They laugh and then he really says it. Again, the lie on bed next to each other. Miryea says that now she has no place left to hide. Jay tells her to stay with him.
