It's about 2 minutes longer in the uncut version. The ape-men fight more and it is clear they are going to eat one of their members.

I'm shaving a few hours off of my 48-hour rule for films I have reviewed, but I think that is VANISHING POINT. The character does not appear in the US cut.

Yes, the International cut is 100 minutes. Kino gives both versions on two discs and they seem to be the same restoration. The commentary track is on the longer version.

The ABT solution on -83 has best DVD deinterlacing and scaling in recorded history. Set output to 1080p and enjoy! (The projector is 1080p native? I couldn't find it).
