Censuring The Censors

John Wick: Chapter 2 (Blu-ray)

     In what has to be an unprecedented blunder, Studio Canal have released a censored version on this local disc. The movie was cut for cinema release in the United Kingdom to avoid an 18 rating, trimming a rather significant 23 seconds from the suicide scene, and the subsequent U.K. standard Blu-ray featured that exact same censored version. Even though John Wick: Chapter 2 was screened in Australian cinemas completely uncut, the local release features the cut U.K. edition. I therefore cannot in good conscience recommend this disc in any capacity because of the blunder.
