    The Hitman's Bodyguard, a delightfully wry, action-packed film from Lionsgate (Summit) and Millennium, hits home video as a superb 4k UHD offering.

    One of the prime reasons being that Lionsgate and Millennium, finish many of their more recent productions in true 4k.

    And this disc makes it apparent.

    I'll not go into storyline, but for those unaware, it's a hoot. Language may be a bit of problem for younger viewers, as Mr. Jackson (Samuel L.) creates an aura around the word "mother**er" that will have some feeling it perfectly normal to use at the Christmas dinner table.

    Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek, round out a superb, fun cast.

    Is it just me or does it seem like Samuel L Jackson seems to be in a new movie every month! And yet one of his best still has not been released on Blu-ray afaik...'187'

    Yeah, he loves to work. I remember seeing an interview with Jackson where he said he had talked to George Lucas about directing Red Tails and Jackson said he passed because it would take a year or so and he didn't want to step away from acting for that long.
