You must watch the Director's Cut. It's like a totally different film. And the characters are so much better developed. The Director's Cut leaves in all the emotional depth and philosophical themes that were cut out of the retarded cinema release. I know most people hate it, but it's one of my favourite films of all time. And I love it all the more cos so many people didn't have the intelligence to appreciate it and were caught up in the hate-Orlando-Bloom-Bandwagon. Love it.
