Damn - they've edited the original!,
This review is from: Firefox  [DVD] (DVD)
Firefox has always been one of my favourite films, and while it's a bit cheesy and jingoistic 20 years on, it is entertaining - especially seeing fine British actors like Nigel Hawthorne (rest his soul!) and Kenneth Colley making a pig's ear of their Russian accents...
However, in this DVD version they've edited out a lot of the best bits - including a lot of the interplay between the politicians and General Vladimirov at Bilyarsk when they are trying to plot the retrieval and destruction of the MiG-31.
I was really disappointed by this, and haven't watched the film again since - though it's comforting to know it's on the shelf.

If you can play Region 1 NTSC DVDs, the US DVD is the uncut version - the UK release is a version Eastwood re-edited for the film's video release.
