Kingdom of Heaven R1/R2
Hi all

Quick query

Whilst I am aware that there are differences in running times for R1 vs R2 discs I am looking at the upcoming release of Ridley Scotts 'Kingdom Of Heaven' and find that the R1 has running time of 145mins whereas the R2 is 159mins this seems rather a large difference does anyone know if cut is possibly different ?

Cheers

Where did you get the R2 running time from? The R2 release is just over 138 minutes long, which is pretty much bang on when you take PAL speed-up into account.

Hi

Looked on couple of sites
Play.Com (does say R2 running time is 2hrs 39min approx)
PlayUSA (R1 144min)
Loaded247 (R1 145min)
Amazon US (R1 144min)
ChoicesDirect (R2 159mins)

Some other R2 sites show 144mins so there does seem to be some confusion
Never saw one with 138mins ?

Cheers

They're all wrong. It can't be as long as the R1 (which is 144 mins) because of PAL speed-up. The BBFC rated it with a running time of just over 138 mins, which is right.

kingdom of heaven?
Man this movie sucked and was as obvious as yuo can have for any movie that exposes hollywoods bias and hatred against christians.
The christians were the bad guys and the only good christians were the athiest ones! lol
Yet the muslims were kind and decent hearted.
By the way so many factual errors in this film.
Sa'ladin's sister was not killed she was handed over back to her brother in real life.
Typical Hollywood BS. And orlanod bloom cant carry a film!

I heard it was really bad. And Orlando Bloom was only swell at acting in the Lord of the Rings films.
