Double bill of action thrillers starring Keanu Reeves as a former hitman who must return to the criminal world he left behind in order to seek revenge.

In 'John Wick' (2014), after the eponymous hitman (Reeves) refuses to sell his car to Russian gang leader Iosef (Alfie Allen), the gang members break into his home and kill his dog, a gift left to him by his late wife Helen (Bridget Moynahan). It turns out that Iosef is the son of Wick's ex-boss Viggo Tarasov (Michael Nyqvist), head of the Russian mafia in New York. As John attempts to track down and kill Iosef he encounters assassin Ms. Perkins (Adrianne Palicki), who is working for Viggo, and eventually faces his former boss in an ultimate showdown.

In 'John Wick - Chapter 2' (2017) Wick is again coaxed out of retirement when Italian crime boss Santino D'Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) calls in a debt and persuades the former hitman to kill his sister, Gianna (Claudia Gerini), in Rome. However, the tables are soon turned when Santino puts out a hit on Wick, a bounty his fellow assassins all over the world are only too happy to collect. The cast also includes Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Willem Dafoe and Laurence Fishburne.

Cold! Ordered the 4K version Do people still buy 1080 discs?...


Hi yes they do. You have just bought a 1080 (2k) upscaled to 4k John Wick 2 Disc:

John Wick 2 UltraHD Blu-ray (2017)31918733.jpgOriginal Format(s): ARRIRAW (2.8K)

Master Format:2K

Features: Includes Blu-ray, HDR, Wide Color Gamut

Release Date: June 13, 2017

Notes: Soundtrack details currently unknown, but unlike the original this seems to have been finished with a 2K DI instead of a 4K DI. Hopefully this is incorrect but still waiting for details from the studio.

AVFORUMS:

"Shot digitally at 2.8K using an Arri Alexa XT Plus, unlike the first chapter, the sequel is unfortunately constrained by the limitations of a 2K digital intermediate."

At least the UHD BD is uncut, unlike the Blu-ray.

In most cases it's the HDR and wider colour gamut that make the difference between Blu-ray and UHD BD, not the resolution. Having been finished in 2K and upscaled to 4K isn't a problem. The vast majority of films that wow audiences in theatres have 2K special effects, so many are finished with 2K masters. Only a small percentage of modern films are finished in 4K (older films can advance with technology as they're not digital).
DVD double pack also £8.99, Someone might buy that
Cool yer boots Scooby, Twas a joke.

Also they don't actually have this in stock, nor the 4K discs so I doubt I bought anything.

Haha. You got pwned baby...
Not saying this is a bad deal, as JW 2 is quite new, and if it was any other recent movie then would be a bargain. I haven't seen the second one, but after watching the first one I'd rather have my teeth pulled than go through that again.

I like action films, but insist on the movie having some kind of coherent plot. The character build up wasn't enough to make you care about what happens to the bloke. Anyway, if you haven't seen the first one, maybe try to watch that before spending £10 on this. I'm sure there will be those that loved it.

PHEW! Glad I came back on here. Got my order in, thanks.
Careful if you get the 1080p Blu ray.The UK version has about 23 seconds cut to make sure it keeps it's 15 rating.
