The reason I ask is that it was especially notable for foreign films that scenes are cut mercilessly so that they fit in the "common" 90 min format.

For example: "Tom-Yum-Goong".

Even in cinema it was obvious that key scenes were cut out (Severals murders, the interaction with the police officers, the freeing and escape of Mark and Khorn).

If I find a movie good, I absolutely do not mind to see it even if it lasts 4 hours. It is not a question about censorship and violence, it is more that I take offense that a movie is maimed because it does not fit in the western standard length.

First question:
How do you find out how long the uncut/director cut version is?

No, let me google that for you does not work:

German Wikipedia: 90 min
English Wikipedia: 110 min
Thai Wikipedia: 105 min

    IMDB often has an 'Alternate versions' section, which will sometimes list differences between versions shown in different regions. However, it's dependent on users adding such content. For this movie (known as The Protector in the US), there's actually a relevant answer in the IMDB FAQ: imdb.com/title/tt0427954/faq
