Comparison:

  • TV-Version
  • Creator's Cut
Release: Feb 09, 2010 - Author: Mike Lowrey - Translator: Gladion - external link: IMDB
The TV movie of the all over the world popular TV-real time series 24, subtitled Redemption is supposed to fill the gap between the 6. and 7. season and was released on DVD only few days after its TV premiere.

Aside the version shown on TV, the DVD was shipped with a longer version, called Creator's Cut which added almost fifteen minutes of new footage.
This is mostly put together from scene extensions and additional scenes, sometimes decorated with alternate footage. The relevance of these scenes varies from insightful to irrelevant. There are also a few small violence-extensions, but calling the Creator's Cut an unrated version that goes beyond of what is possible on TV would be presumptous.

To keep this cut report clear, it was intentionally chosen which changes are relevant and/or should be listed because of their length. Differing shots that last only a few frames which don't have any censorship background or are of useful nature have deliberately not been listed. They were considered when calculating the total runtime difference, though.

The CC on the other hand shows the president's husband, standing in the hallway and waiting for her. The assistant of the current president is coming from the briefing room and is being asked by the president's husband what was happening and says his wife would miss her inauguration. The assistant tells him that he could not talk to him about that, but he was clearly allowed to talk to his wife about that soon. The husband is not pleased with this statement, though, and so he tells his adversary that he had only asked a simple question. It'd be acceptable if he couldn't answer the question, but he should not tell him he was allowed to talk to his wife. The assistant shuffles out of this situation by making clear he had to clean his bureau.
