An unrated extended cut was released on DVD in the US November 2006, featuring 17 minutes of additional footage, expanding the film to nearly two and a half hours at 140 minutes total.
Extended edition DVD also includes an animated prologue of Castle and Weeks in Kuwait during Desert Storm, where Castle saves Weeks' life and prohibits another soldier from summarily executing two captured guerrillas
German theatrical version was cut rather sloppily for violence (ca. 1,5 min.) to secure a "Not under 18" rating from the FSK. The uncut version is available on DVD and has no FSK rating but a JK/SPIO approval.
The theatrical release contained a shot at the family reunion in which Roy Scheider accidentally knocks a glass of water into Thomas Jane's lap. This appears to have been removed from the US DVD.
