John Wick Chapter 2 - UHD w/HDR
Recommendation: Tier 0.75
The subject matter doesn't lend itself to scoring very highly in my opinion. The movie is ~75% low lit scenes with muted color palette. However, what is there is pristine. In the occasions where the additional color and brightness comes into play, this movie contains some of the best scenes I've ever seen. Black levels are solid through out, and details are solid being a 4k release.
About 3/4 thru the movie John Wick is fighting thru an art gallery with bright signs, lights, and a mirror room. During this approximately 15-20 minute scene, contrast of color and light skyrockets and would easily be one of my top 5 demos to show off.
If you happen to have a 4K tv and HDR capable, you won't be disappointed. I really hope this is how HDR is handled in more movies. Don't need searing brightness, give bright highlights with very deep blacks against multiple colors to show massive contrast. But on the other side, if the scene doesn't call for it, don't blow it out for no reason.
