The Region 1 DVD contains 11 deleted/extended scenes. They are as follows:
Gibbons observing as two other NSA agents argue against having an average citizen as a secret agent, then give Gibbons the green light.
Xander rides in the economy class of an airplane and explains his mission to a teenage boy, telling him that it's all part of a first person shooter video game.
Extended version of Xander's arrival in Prague, where the Ivans stand guard while Xander tries to take a nap.
Additional footage before Xander enters the techno dance club.
The Ivans discovering the blood splatter dart after Xander shoots the police officer.
Extended party scene in the castle, containing a more explicit version of the pole dance scene (which was later trimmed down for a PG13 rating).
R-Rated version of Yorgi receiving a phone call from someone with information on Xander Cage. It features three nude girls on a bed behind him (the R1 DVD has it blurred out).
Additional dialogue after Xander's "Nothing like Fresh Powder" line between Xander and Gibbons regarding Xander disobeying orders.
Extended version of the Prague police raid on Yorgi's castle.
Additional dialogue between Xander and Yelena on Bora Bora, where Xander asks Yelena how long she can hold her breath.
This movie is unbelievably stupid, but somehow people (including me) like it. Just watch it, take it for what it is, and go with the flow. Vin Diesel plays an "extreme protester" recruited by "The Man" to accomplish some vague mission. Don't get too concerned about the mission, or anything else for that matter. Anything resembling a plot is present only to justify the explosion or parachute jump or whatever impossible physical challenge the stunt-masters have come up with. Just be happy you rented this instead of paid to see it in a theater. Invite your friends over, have a few beers, and enjoy!!!
