Alternative / Additional material in the international DVD/HD master
13:48-14:04 / 15:02-15:17

When the hotel owner tries to kick the mouse, we can see an alternative take. The VHS version seems more fluent regarding the man's body position.
The subsequent shot of Bolt begins earlier on the German VHS.

No difference in time.

14:28-14:32 / 15:41-16:03

After Bolt's 10,000 dollar offer, the international DVD/HD master just shortly shows the man behind the counter, followed by Bolt a little earlier.


The German VHS instead shows the man shouting into the sideroom: "Front! Throw this bum out."
The old bellhop comes in. After he shortly looked at Bold he replies "No." and leaves again.
The hotel owner looks rather surprised and in this take Bolt already says his sentence.


German VHS 18.3 sec longer



14:45 / 16:15-16:19

The next shot of the hotel owner begins earlier and at the beginning he sarcastically says: "Look...I'll give you a break."

14:57-15:02 / 16:31-16:35

After the conversation both versions show a soft transition, yet the international version fades to an alternative shot.
After that, it continues with the shot of the VHS version. The German VHS in return starts this shot eralier and almost makes up for the lost runtime.

24:36 / 25:46-25:54

During the earlier shots, a few frames are already lost. At this point, there is a longer part missing.
Molly (pretty friendly): "How do you feel now? Feel a little better?"
Bolt (admits): "A little better, yes."
Molly (now aggressive): "Good, then get out!"

7.7 sec




Alternative / Additional material in the international DVD/HD master
26:19-26:35 / 27:33-28:03

There is an alternative shot in which Bolt asks if he could get something to eat nearby.
On the VHS, Molly answers "Yeah. You can eat in the curbs, you can eat in the streets, you can eat in the alley. All you need is the food."
Bolt: "Where would I find 'the food'?"
Molly: "That narrows it down to either..."

The comment about the garbage bin/mission can be heard in both versions, yet the shots are a little different. Additionally, Molly's comment is a little shorter in the international version: "(What do I look like, a tour guide?) You're throwing me way off my schedule. This is my lunch break."

German VHS 15.4 sec longer

Again, the international version includes an earlier soft transition, yet this time it includes acut. Actually, the scene inside the office with Vance is longer. He hums and in between one of the shareholders looks into the room.

Roughly two minutes later (after Sailor's death) there is another slightly different soft transition: It begins roughly at the same time, yet the effect lasts a little longer on the VHS. This (along with a few more moments with only slightly postponed transition-effect) will not be mentioned again with individual screenshots.
