Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

NOT EVERYONE WHO RUNS A CITY IS ELECTED.

Arguably maverick filmmaker Abel Ferrera’s most accessible and explosive film, King of New York’s status as an urban gangster classic is cemented by a magnetic, career-best central performance by Christopher Walken, as well as riveting support from Laurence Fishburne, Wesley Snipes, Giancarlo Esposito, Steve Buscemi and David Caruso.

After years inside, drug lord Frank White (Walken) is fresh out of jail and back on the streets of New York City. Seeing himself as half Scarface, half Robin Hood, Frank and his enforcers brutally take back control of the city, turf by turf – with starry dreams of using the millions to benefit the community and save a local hospital. Before Frank can fulfil his ruthless lust for power, though, he’s got to get past the crooked cops determined to take him down, and the criminal competition that won’t bend to his will.

Still just as relevant and incendiary now as it was three decades ago, King of New York returns with guns blazing in this definitive special edition, including a new director-approved 4K restoration.

Great

Great edition and film, delivery was fast

Brilliant

Great looking film. Really good performances. Arrow have shown the film a great deal of care and attention to make it look the best it has ever looked. Give it a try.

Unseen classic

Unseen classic in the crime genre with good performances and many faces that have since become mainstay favorites. Technically the disc is fine, not the best possible picture quality. The order was delivered quite quickly and intact.

4k

The 4k format is the best way to watch films this film is brutal as always zavvi are the best site for buying films I have over 150 films from them
