hi does anyone know the true running time of the family of cops TV films ? IMDB has these films running time listed as : 1 / 90 minutes 2 / 88 3 / 120 total of 298 minutes
elsewhere 1 / 90 minutes 2 / 100 3 / 120 total of 310 minutes
Anyway I bought the german/english version - limited edition uncut - 3 disc set for about £11 inc postage - but on the back it states running time is 262 minutes - this got me checking out the running times & it appears to be close to the imdb figures on 1 + 2 but family of cops 3 is some 36 minutes shorter ...so ok I put it down to one of those things but it did state its uncut....so then I notice another version of this the more costly one @ £16 SCANDIANAVIAN EDITION looked at the details and it states 310 minutes long ...therefore I could see I had ordered the longest versions of these films as listed above ...received the product the next day from amazon - looked at the back cover total running time listed as 5 hours & 10 minutes spot on 310 minutes ...but on playing the discs you've guest it the running times are the same as the german release 262 minutes so 48 minutes less than they claim on the package ..... so my question is does anyone know what the correct running time is for these films ...... many thanks

I believe they are all uncut, running times at the back of DVD's shouldn't always be trusted, neither should IMDb. They were TV-movies so I doubt there was anything special to cut from them. I own the Scandinavian versions.
You make sounds like you're a mean little ass-kicker... only I ain't convinced. You keep talking and I'm gonna take your head off.
