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.

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.

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.

I can't believe they removed the director's commentary on the BR disc.... Is already one of the best selling movies ever, and I'm pretty sure it will beat records on home video too... But this is outrageous! This is marketing screwing up the fans. We'll give you our money, when you deserve it.

Canceling my preorder made in July.

This sucks

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.

How come the US amazon is selling a "Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy + Digital Music Download" and the UK isn't? I have been waiting to purchase this movie and low and behold I find that the UK customers do not have the choice the US customers have.

Shameful

I was fully intending to buy this DVD and looking forward to it as well. When I saw the 100+ one star reviews I couldn't believe it, as I saw the film in the cinema and was blown away! After reading them and discovering Disney's failure to put real bonus features on here, not even a director's commentary, I completely understood the negative reaction. I'm now going to wait to buy the expected 'special edition' release when it no doubt comes out later.

As far as I can tell, the main differences between this and the US release are:
- next to no special features
- no director's commentary
- one crucial scene is edited although I don't know which one it is

Disappointing, Disney

Let me start with the positives here. Yes the movie is excellent. Joss Whedon has always been hit and miss for me. I thought Buffy was good until season 6 and Angel up until its final season. Firefly and Serenity bored me as did Dollhouse. On the other hand I thought Dr Horrible was fun. Movie wise he's been more miss for me as I didn't really enjoy either Alien Ressurection or Titan A.E. But with this movie Joss seems to have cracked it. Lots of action on a giant scale, quieter character moments and as is the norm for a Joss Whedon script, a lot of laughs both in terms of visual gags (two of the best involving the Hulk) and a witty script. All the actors put in good performances here, especially Mark Ruffolo who I thought was the best version of Bruce Banner on screen yet. Some may feel the film drags in the middle but I feel these character moments are necessary to give each character room for growth and lays the foundations for not only how they eventually come together but I am also sure laying foundations for future sequels. 5 stars easily for the film.

The disk itself however is nothing short of woeful. We are treated with a censored version of the film that cuts a scene that didn't need cutting. We are also denied Joss Whedon's commentary and any extensive 2nd disk of features on the making of the film. In short this is bare bones and most annoyingly, even barer than the US version. It is situations like this, when people in one country are treated as less deserving of respect or consideration than the US that leads to people pirating imo so if paramount do lose money off of this lack of respect then they only have themselves to blame. 1 star for the disk.
