My brother in law is visiting from Australia just now.  He watched Taken in the cinema over there, when it came out.  The other day we watched it at our place and he said the UK version was far more violent.  Apparently it was a 15 (the equivalent of) over there, where as it was an 18 here.  The one thing that stood out was the torture scene he couldn't seem to remember it being as long down under.

Wow! lol thanks, that was helpful.
Now another question...
I have both
Taken Extended Harder Cut
&
Taken - Rental Copy

Are they both the same then?
Because I have spotted some small differences like on the cover etc?

One of them is an 18 certificate if you have that I'd sugest it's uncut.

According to the link that someone posted above there's hardly any difference between the two cuts.  The torture scene is slightly extended.  The film was a 15 in the UK at the cinema and pg13 in the US.  On dvd and blu it's an 18 which probably means it's uncut.

read this post and just to clarify:
I saw this dvd on the shelf and noticed the cover on the shop edition states harder uncut edition were the rental edition dosn't and thought they may be different, ( a ploy by the studio to get you to buy it rather than rent it! ) I asume by this thread this is not the case and they are the same. Am I right in thinking this?
