Comparison between the theatrical version (rated R) and the canadian Extreme Version (unrated). Both versions are on the Canadian RC1-DVD from Alliance Atlantis as well as the US-DVD from New Line Cinema.
This unrated version joins the likes of "Underworld" or "Hellboy". Although there are some added fight scenes, this version is not necessarily a more violent one. Besides some gags and an alternative ending, the main part of the added scenes are plot-wise.

The Extreme Version is 9 minutes and 25 seconds longer than the theatrical version!

The TV-Show with Dr. Vance and Chief Vreede already appears here and is much longer than the later version in the theatrical version.

One can see shots of the city and the rising moon, then of a mouse running around the storehouse and passing an explosive charge, detonating briefly afterwards.
