Goofs

Purprtedly a version of this film begins with the submarine Nereid visiting Japan, allowing Yoshizumi a last look at his homeland. The trip does not fit in with the sequence this scene fits into, in which the sub is on a desperate race against time from Antarctica to Washington, DC to deactivate a doomsday device. It is improbable that the sub would detour to the other side of the world for nostalgic reasons. However, the extended (Japanese) version begins with a flash-forward to Dr. Yoshizumi walking down to Patagonia and his last trip in the Nereid takes the direct route from Palmer Station to Washington, DC.

Got the full version letterbox DVD
18 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hi, I have just ordered the DVD from CD Japan, here is the link; http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=KABD-149 it is a 2 disc set with remastered audio. it isn't available through amazon which is why i have made this post.

Great movie and must have in the original format. I was looking for the DVD for ages and finally found it. A bit steep in price but was in a great packaged DVD box. region 2. English soundtrack (some scenes contain the Japanese additions which in my opinion add to the story and makes it less 'choppy')
