Video Quality

The Hitman's Bodyguard is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 2.39:1. Finished at a 4K DI culled from a variety of digital cameras, the film looks pretty fantastic in 4K, with noticeably better detail levels from the already excellent 1080p Blu-ray presentation. Everything from "minor" elements like skin pores or even the tattoos on the back of Kincaid's head look more precise and nuanced now, but the uptick is noticeable across the board, including in wider outdoor shots where even things like fields of grass or foliage on trees pop with greater precision. Kind of interestingly, I wouldn't say that HDR adds a ton of new palette information here, with the exception of a late interrogation scene which is bathed in almost hallucinogenic purples and oranges, and which has noticeably better saturation in the 4K UHD version (though, again, the 1080p Blu-ray presentation is no slouch to begin with). One other kind of interesting difference in the two versions is with regard to some flashback material, which, as I mentioned in our The Hitman's Bodyguard Blu-ray review, has been intentionally "distressed" to look "grainy", often with at least some slight desaturation. This technique tends to look just slightly more noisy in the 4K UHD version. I also tended to notice what I assume is some green screen material a bit more in this version than on the 1080p Blu-ray, but not to the point that I found it overly distracting. Finally, the closing credits roll on the 4K UHD version looked just slightly "jittery" to my eyes, something I didn't notice on the 1080p Blu-ray version.

Audio Quality

The 4K UHD disc sports the same very effective Dolby Atmos track that is assessed in our The Hitman's Bodyguard Blu-ray review.
