What's cut out? I know of the bit with the buzz saw projectile cutting a piece of a guard's head off but was anything else cut? Is there an uncut version?
The other scenes cut are:
-a longer scene of a pitchfork being shoved in someones stomach
-the infamous 'arm chopping' scene, and subsequent scene of Matrix throwing both the machete and arm at the bloke on the floor and scene of bloke screaming at the sight of his arm being gone, plus lots of blood
-a buzz saw being thrown, and embedding, into someones throat and again, with lots of blood
Other differing scenes are Matrix talking about his past to Cindy, and various other alternate scenes (directors cut only these two)
You can get the DC version on R1 disc (I bought it years ago), or you can get the Blu Ray, with just the violence over here (at least i think it's just the violence).
Hope that helps.
