Comments The region two 'Enhanced Edition' exhibits superior image quality in spite of some minor cropping on all sides. The Dolby Digital audio is on a par with the region one release, but the presence of a DTS track gives it a slight edge over that disc.

The region one 'Collector's Edition' features nicer presentation (animated menus) and a superior selection of extras, specifically the multi-angle video commentary that was dropped from the region two disc.
