Comparison between the theatrical Version and the Extended (Unrated) Cut.

The old Version is represented by the German FSK 18 - Special Edition (Columbia)

whereas the "Extended (Unrated) Cut" is placed on the identical called DVD as a RC-1. The new "Extended (Unrated) Cut" of the movie "The Replacement Killers"

is a new representative of the category "commerce-cut" by Sony / Columbia.

Most of the extended scenes are enlargements of the plot which are actually quite expedient but meaningless for the usual action-fan.

Anyhow, Mira Sorvino gets some more chances to swear and the characters acquire depth.

These points probably just animate true Chow Yun-Fat fans to buy this "Extended Cut"!

and adds: "but the chose me", the "cinema-version" shows Meg still in the room and John adds like before that he has to go to China

because otherwise his family would die.

The ending of this scene is nearly the same than in the "cinema-version",

but the old one lacks nearly every part in which the "Extended Cut" emphasizes the emotions of the protagonists.

**Extended Cut contains 68 more seconds**

**80:25 min. - 80:29 min.**

The "cinema-version" contains a longer view of the bullet in the magazine,

but therefore the "Extended Cut" contains John who says "I have the same problem with you".
