    I'm not sure Ridley helped with that. Read the original script by some other guy. Lindelhof may have reigned in some of his more outlandish ideas.

    Leftovers shows how good he can be with genre TV.

    So, is it worth watching this 5hr extended cut of the film?

    Is it actually any good?

    It's a separate story from the movie/book. New characters.

    @MrFlay The Ultimate Cut of the film? No, it's extended with Tales of the Black Feighter animation innit?

    Yeah I know the show is based on new stuff.

    Iím looking forward to it.

    Although, from what I know of the plot ahead of time, Iím worried it will make my username, which has been my online handle for the best part of 20 years now, somewhat problematic.

    Iíve got the Directors Cut version (which doesnít have the animated comic book sequence in it - havenít seen that so canít comment on it).

    To be honest, the added scenes actually make it worse. You can tell they were cut for a reason. I think thereís maybe one, very Zack Schneider fight scene thatís kind of worth watching for the sake of the storyline if nothing else, but the rest looks like they were cut early on and lack quite a bit of polish.

    The theatrical cut remains a fairly satisfactory, condensed version of the story as told in the comics, but as told by a director who seems to have misunderstood
    some pretty major aspects of the story, and whose talent as director is somewhat debatable.

    Iíve got the Ultimate version. Iím a massive fan of the comic and am a bit of a completist, so have numerous versions of the comic itself and all the film versions. For that reason I liked the Ultimate version as I enjoyed seeing the comics represented in their entirety, and I personally generally quite like Snyderís take on it all. But Iíve only watched it once and itís certainly not the best version in itself.

    Itís from the panel in the comic where the police get tipped off about Rorschach and the detective mishears and notes it down as ďRaw SharkĒ.

    But so have also read the Raw Shark Texts which is I. Itself a pub on Rorschach Tests - yeah itís a pretty good read.

    Just to note the series will be simulcast with the US so there will be a 2am showing. So if you want to stream it on your way to work on Monday, you can.

    Thereís no censored version. Thereís the theatrical cut, the directors cut, and the Ultimate cut. Directors cut has some added scenes and ultimate has the Tales from the Black Freighter animated sequences inserted.
