The R4 features the International "UNCUT" version of the film while the R1 features the US "CUT" version of the film.
The first cut on the R1 US version is:
- (R1) At 53:32 the victim's nose is broken.
- (R4) The international version features the victim's broken nose with a profuse amount of blood and it is clear the nose has been smashed into the victim's skull.
The second cut on the R1 US version is:
- (R1) At 81:14 the victim's neck is broken and blood fills the victims mouth.
- (R4) The international version features the sound of the vicitm's neck breaking and the victim chokes on a profuse amount of blood which rushes out of his mouth.
Both shots last the same length of time and use the same take, the amount of blood was simply toned down digitally for the MPAA.
