"Why the studio would decide to release this version is beyond my understanding. I bought this version by mistake several months ago while looking for the full version. I purchased one full-length version from ebay not long ago at a very good price and am very happy to own it (the UK 3,5 hours VHS PAL full version is deleted and you can only hope to buy it secondhand). It is as one reviewer said 'a mind boggling' thriller and lots of cuts were made that are important to the plot.
Three stars for this version, because it has been cut to shreds. The uncut version deserves its full five stars. 3,5 hours of film as opposed to the 2 hours cut version, you can imagine missing a lot of suspense!
Additional note on September 21st 2009: The R2 uncut DVD version is available."
Great mini-series - but don't buy this version!!

"Framed is one of Timothy Dalton's best pieces of work. But this version has been cut to shreds. The original is four hours long. With this DVD, half the film is missing and it was not padding they cut. If you can find the full version, then great, buy it. Just don't purchase the two hour version."

"I saw this movie innitially when it came out in Europe for tv as a mini series. A few years later it was aired again on tv. I enjoyed the movie just as much the second time around as the first, and now I am buying the movie for my husband to experience it. I don't think this is the full version, as I seem to remember the movie to be much longer than 115 minutes, but maybe that is because it was cut up into episodes. If it is not the full version, then that's very dissapointing, because a dvd can hold more than enough information. Anybody know the truth on the length of this movie? I'm just puzzled since the previous reviewer mentioned this. None the less, this is a great psychological action detective to enjoy!"
Fascinating and truly suspenseful

"I didn't see the original, so I wasn't disappointed by not seeing the full-length version. (But this version is so good that I can see how it must be disappointing to those who got to see a couple more hours of it.) This is an excellent production, with fine acting by everyone. It's fascinating to see how Eddie Myers seduces so many of the people around him. I really had no idea how it was going to end, and had a clenched stomach for the last 10 minutes. I've seen very few movies that did that to me. I'd say it's some of Timothy Dalton's best work."
