5 stars for the miniseries. This version however, you do NOT want. It's been chopped to shreds and the result is a choppy viewing. What you do want is the extended version which has an extra 65 minutes added in (I've reviewed this version too.) Or, if you can locate it, the Blu-ray version, which looks to contain an extra 85 minutes.

Peter Benchley's The Beast
Brett R. Dick | GOLDEN VALLEY, MN United States | 06/19/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, waited a long time for this one, and finally it is here. This is the complete unedited Mini-Series that was first broadcast on NBC. Time to get rid of the short VHS and previous DVD releases as this one is the real deal. If you bought the first DVD release I'm sure you found out it was severely edited, missing about 64 previous minutes from the original mini-series. Rejoice it is all restored here in a very nice package for a very good price. This is one of the classic rubber monster flicks of the late 1990's and is terrific fun to watch, just buy it."
This dvd version I rated 3 stars because it in cut and not t

"I really loved this movie in its original TV mini series form which was played in two days when it was first shown on TV. This dvd shows that is it 120 mins, which means it is the direct transfer from the vhs version and has some really good scenes cut out of it. Like when William Petersen's character Whip Dalton gets drunk. They also cut out most of the relationship between Whip Dalton and Lt. Kathryn Marcus played by Karen Sillas which added to the story to make it well rounded. Thus, my rating of 3 stars instead of 5 stars. It is more choppy and you can see something is missing from the story.

**** To Those who distrabute and own the rights to the movie please release the UNCUT version for those of us who enjoy a well rounded story. ****

Thank you. I hope this review helps."
A disappointment!

"I bought this DVD with thoughts of receiving a full uncut version of the original movie and was very disappointed to get a movie that was cut. I didn't think they would have downsized it as all my other movie purchases were completely intact. DO NOT BUY this version if you were expecting the entire movie. I wished I would have known it before I purchased it."
