Why cut this film but not the first two?,
This review is from: Die Hard With A Vengeance (Two Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I rate this film when uncut 5 stars, but this edited version is disappointing. A full 8 minutes has been cut, including the famous elevator confrontation between our hero John McClane and 3 bad guys, as well as John's fight on the ship with the biggest and strongest antagonist! The explosions are still great but all of John's hand-to-hand close-up contact fight scenes are GONE! If you have a multi-regional DVD player or NTSC VCR then buy the U.S. version; It is still rated "R" (and 131 minutes long), not PG-13.

The UK version is cut, yes, but its not cut by 8 mins, that's a mistake. The US version will run slower due to the UK version playing 4% faster due to PAL speed-up.

The main thing cut out of the UK cut is the language, the extra violence is featured during the elevator sequence, the stabbing, the two bad guys in the truck. I didn't see anything extra really during the beating with the chain.
