Q
What are the differences between the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut?
A
The Theatrical Version includes almost none of the onscreen violence and some oneliners were also cut. This version wasn't even released in the USA on DVD but for some reason it was released in Germany (with an "FSK 16" rating). It is highly probably that this version is based on the Uncut US Theatrical Cut which was also released in Germany (with an "FSK 18" rating). Undoubted the DC is the harder version because it contains the scenes that were cut for PG-13 and it contains some alternate, more explicit footage as well. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
