Hmmm.... the bone he was using in the film looked a little bigger than the picture in that link. And they were putting a lot of emphasis on what they were eating for it to just be 'porc'...

either way, gets the audience going, that's for sure.

Yes I know, the picture was just an exemple, it's another part called Jokbal bal means foot in Korean. That bone in the film is the leg.

Sorry I meant PORK not PORC (it's my french taking over lol!)

One reviewer on Amazon has this to say about the American release dvd of Yellow Sea:
"This is a horribly edited, watered down version of the film. Apparently Fox Studios thought it was too much for American audiences to handle so they literally edit and completely take out some of the films most defining, and intense scenes. This film is NOT worth owning with this cut. They basically take the movie from NC-17 to PG-13. I know it's R, but they even dumb down some of the dialogue to not make the movie be so grim. This is a non-Western action movie, and it's very obvious. So much so, Fox EDITED out everything that makes Korean films Korean."

y'know, it's a very disturbing trend lately that every Asian movie which gets released over here seems to be edited in some form or fashion. Soundtrack changes are lamentable but really there's no excuse for cutting out violence, altering the story, or trying to make a film "friendlier" than it really is.

the easy solution is to just boycott such releases. seriously, fox, why even bother releasing it? This is not a mainstream property. The kind of people who are gonna wanna see Yellow Sea outside of Korea anyway are either a) movie buffs who want to see the original or b) action junkies who are gonna be into exactly all the stuff that is being removed. cutting it down fails to appease anyone but the dumb studio heads.

I received my bluray today, and it says on the back that it's the director's cut.
