Alternate Versions

DVD includes 14 deleted scenes: they consist mostly of alternate takes of existing scenes (for example Ronna and Simon discussing outside the store) and longer versions of scenes featured in the theatrical release (such as the first conversation between Todd Gaines and Claire). Also included, however, is an alternate ending for the Vegas storyline, where Simon and Marcus find out they left Todd's credit card in Vegas and realize that the goons are on their tracks. They barricade themselves in Simon's apartment. Meanwhile Victor and his son are at Todd's apartment and are waiting for Simon. Claire finds Todd's gun and points it at Victor unaware that the gun isn't loaded. After a fight, Todd manages to wrestle the gun out of Victor's hands. Todd goes to Simon's apartment and, after Simon lets him in, punches him in the face. See more »

One of the most under appreciated films in history.
2 September 2001 | by pulporange31See all my reviews

Go has not gotten even half of the praise it deserves. The script is genius and the fast paced directing and cinematography are totally the reason to see something in the theatre rather than video. And this is not just another "oh this is my favorite movie, so it has to be great" reviews, there are facts. The epic Godfather, ranked as the best movie ever created by a human being, is lucky if it goes for 20 minutes without having the sound lose sync with the mouth movement. Not that I'm totally knocking it. And also, everyone says, "oh Go is the son of Pulp Fiction", "a lesser Pulp Fiction", but the fact is the it's structure has much more in common with the other Tarantino great Jackie Brown. Rent this to see what great cinema is.
