While I think this movie is very fun and trashy, the DVD has only the r-rated version. On video, one can buy the unrated director's cut, which has about 10 minutes added (this includes a little more nudity, dialogue and the ending is changed substantially). Just buy the video, and the film was shot at an aspect ration of 1:1.85, so you're not missing that much since it's not letterboxed.
This was a movie I absolutely loved (though dated) when it originally came out. It had the edge of "Basic Instinct" and of course the hot girl. But this is the second Blu-ray I've bought in two days, where the Blu-ray doesn't contain the director's (extended footage) cut (as in the just released "The Natural") and now this. I do own the unrated VHS version (107 minutes long, and the studio gives us a crappy R-rated version (95 minutes long). This Blu-ray is also going back to the store with the other one. What is the deal! Blu-rays can store more data on them, so again, there is absolutely no reason (in the case where there is both an R-rated version and an Unrated version) that we should not be offered BOTH versions on the one disc. You have the room for it--put them on there studios. A couple more duds like these and I will be through buying Blu-rays. And a heads up for the studios--please don't have the audacity to offer only one of the versions of Last of the Mohicans...
This film first intrigued me because I'm always interested in thrillers like "Rising Sun" or "Sliver", mostly because I really love those solemn-turn-to-explosive kind of films. I always seem to find a good amount of adreneline in these movies, even where most people only see uneventful and boring elements. In fact those scenes, which can be seen with amazing clarity in "Jade", have a subtle emotional intensity that brings out a sense of sophistication, and fulfills a lot of reality within these situations. It's wonderful how strong this film was in all departments: plot, performance, action, emotion, atmosphere, and ability to make a strong mark in the thriller genre. You will also enjoy Caruso's performance, as he does that kind of character well, but you won't be able to forget Linda Fiorentino's and Palminteri's great performances. It has it's share of good ol' American film noir intrigue: infidelity, paranoia, political corruption,...
