Sorry if my English is not perfect, I'm no native-speaker:
- When Theseus' mother gets her throat cut, a few frames are missing.
- A few seconds of the burnt Oracle-chicks are cut.
- When Hyperion puts his fingers in Dareios' eyes, the sound is softened.
- A decapitation has been cut.
- The blood color of the "creatures" has been changed from red to nearly black.

I will not buy it then, i really hate when they cut stuff out. I will only buy it if a uncut version will be released. Shame it looks very cool and action packed.

Are you the person responsible for Amazon pulling this for sale saying it is not as described ? I don't see anywhere on the page where it says this is completely uncut and uncensored like the US edition.
It's well known on internet that this edition has had about 10 seconds of violence cut from it and the blood changed from red to black during the end fighting scene. That's the prudish BBFC for you and I agree with you - it is irritating.
However, that is not a reason to complain the item is not as described.

That's not the BBFC, that's the distributor not wanting an 18 certificate for commercial reasons, so blame them.

Thanks for letting us know it's cut to shreds. Now i will happily await an uncut region 2 import. Simply cannot understand why a distributor would want a 15 certificate for a dvd? Surely given the choice everyone would want the full version? They should test the idea by releasing an 18 and a 15 version simultaneously and see how sales go...Censorship in this country is a joke. They let 12 year old have sex, and drop unwanted sproggs without prosecution but we can't let our kids see a few special effects in a fantasy movie.

Oh please lol let's cut the overly hysterical drama queen reactions please ! Cut to shreds ? if you consider shaving 8 - 9 seconds off a 100 minute movie cutting it to shreds then fair enough.
I agree it's irritating and annoying but as has been pointed out , although the BBFC are responsible for demanding the changes, other european countries have seen fit to pass the entire uncut version with a 14, 15 or 16 certificate depending on the territory.
Personally losing ten seconds spread over 7 separate scenes (an average of 1.5 seconds per scene) is not going to make me lose any sleep over what was , let's face it, a pretty disappointing messed up movie anyway.

Since when is the BBFC prudish? Seeing as we in the UK and Europe often get more graphic versions of films than the USA, how can you say bad things about the BBFC?
Just take a look at films like 9 and a half weeks or Die Hard 4 to see how much better the versions we got to the versions the USA got.
