Does any one know if the Abyss two dvd box set will come out on region 2 release. I can already buy it at 17.99 region 1 but will it be worth it to wait. What do you all think?

Considered opinion seems to be that a Special Edition R2 release of The Abyss of the quality of the R1 version isn't all that likely.

The UK version would have to have the rat scene removed, which has a knock-on effect with the commentary subtitles (some discs have had their commentaries removed completely rather than re-edited to cover excisions ordered by the BBFC).

There's also the fact that the BBFC would have to certify *every single aspect* of the disc, and The Abyss SE has one hell of a lot of them.

Personally, I would not wait for a R2 release - well, I didn't, because I pre-ordered the R1 and fantastic it is too!

I don't get why the UK version would have to have the rat scene removed? Is the UK the only country in the entire world whose version had the rat scene removed, or did any other country's version have the rat scene removed? I have tried searching on Google for this information, but nothing doing!

It's taken you over 13 years to come up with that?
