When we the public were being primed for the introduction of Blu-Ray, one of the primary benefits of the greater capacity in relation to DVD was that there would be access to far more features and extras such as directors commentarys; yes they were going to be considerably more expensive than DVD but you got so much more for your money, it wasn't just better sound and audio.

However, here we see despite the significantly higher premium over DVD, this Blu-Ray offers zero extras, not because they're not available or won't fit on the disc, but because Disney know many individuals will have been waiting for this disc and will pre-order, unaware of the omissions, and of course Disney will then release a 'Special Edition' including everything they should include now.

The sad fact is that many enthusiasts will end up buying both Blu-Rays, and it's this disgraceful attitude towards the UK and all markets except the US which means I never buy new Blu-Rays anymore, preferring to buy them used on Amazon.

And the studios wonder why there's such a massive market for pirated films? It's because you're a bunch of greedy, self-serving entities that's why.

Scenes edited, extras missing all because they rushed the UK release. Other European countries get this unedited.

Please please buy the US version which will work on your UK PS3 or Bluray player. Unedited & all the extras.

The film itself is fantastic, but has been edited to remove a key plot relevant visual effect, and has omitted extra features that are available in all other English language versions of the movie (which also have the missing effect present as it was in the theatre).

In short; a poor, sub-standard Blu-Ray release of a great movie. Get the US version. It will only cost a few quid extra, and you'll get the version you were supposed to get all along.

Not only have Disney treated their UK buyers appallingly by leaving off special features (they've already dropped the DVDs from their animated classics unlike the US versions) it now seems as if we get the edited version that (some) other European countries are getting. How can Disney even release a version here that wasn't the one classified by the BBFC?

This is completely unacceptable and shows nothing more than contempt for UK customers, especially considering the movie in question.

I can understand retailer exclusives with bonus discs and steelbook packaging, but no matter where you buy it you'll not be getting the complete movie.

Was fully intending to get this until I noticed that all the special features have been cut out. Way to go Marvel/Disney. Why release something like this - a disk that was going to sell insane numbers - and waste the opportunity by gutting it? All you're doing is pissing people off. No way I'll be buying this, might try and import the US release.

I know Disney needs to recoup a lot of capital after the disaster that was John Carter - but bleeding it out of fans who would have pre-ordered this hatchet job of the original film just so they have to buy the inevitable "Special Edition" as well? New low.

What's the betting this "Special" Edition (aka the original theatrical release) is out just in time for Christmas?

I am boiling with FURY. I ordered the Blu-ray only to later discover that tonnes of extras have been omitted. This is in STARK contrast to the US release. Disney really kept LOKI about this. No doubt there will be another release further down the line with a "Special Edition" BANNER all over it.

So Disney, you can ROMANOFF.

'Loki' once thought of by 'Thor' as his brother, plans to open a porthole to bring in a deadly army to help him conquer and the rule earth.
'Nick Fury' of 'S.H.I.E.L.D' will try to bring together a group of super-heroes to do battle against 'Loki's' hoards.
Trouble is 'Iron Man' 'Captain America' 'Thor' and 'Hulk' don't know each other, can they combine together to save the planet ?
'The Black Widow's task is to persuade 'Hulk' that he really wants to fight the invaders and not just anyone who seems to get in his way.
'Hawkeye' who has been over-taken by 'Loki's' power will join the super-heroes if the control by the Alien attacker can be broken.
It does become a visual delight when war breaks out, not the strongest story-line you'll have watched, however the 'special effects' will hold your attention................great 3D, with a 2D disc included...............
