Kill Zone 2 (2015/Well Go USA Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Film: B+

Kit (Wu Ying), a cop goes undercover to stop the mob's illegal human/organ trafficking but when his cover is blown, he finds himself falsely accused and thrown into prison. Prison guard Chai (Tony Jaa) works side jobs in the prison for extra money to save his dying daughter, only to discover the Warden is working for the mob, holding the mob's human trafficking. Both the undercover Cop and Guard's path cross one another and fates will be intertwined in Director Pou-Soi Cheang's Kill Zone 2 (2015).

A prison guard's daughter is dying from leukemia and she desperately needs to find a matching donor for a bone marrow transplant. Unbeknownst to both the Guard and the Cop, the Cop is the perfect match/donor. Both Guard and Cop are tempted by the mob offering them a easy way out, for the Guard a human sacrifice from their illegal trafficking to cure his daughter and the Cop to turn a blind eye to their business and they will (maybe) let him live (unlikely). When both sides discover each other and that they can help each other, the Guard and Cop team up to take down the mob once and for all.

This was a total action film, whenever Tony Jaa is in a film there is always bone breaking action and blood letting fist fights. This film was totally about how easy it is for people to follow evil and win, often the path of good and justice is a harder path, but in the end...

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High definition image is a solid RED EPIC 4K - 5K shoot, mastered in 2K and with limits here and there. Otherwise, its fine and the Cantonese DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) lossless 5.1 mix is a mixdown from the 7.1 soundmaster in better theatrical screenings, but is still impactful enough here. Extras include making of the film in 3 parts, deleted scenes and trailers.
