Sisu is one of the most satisfying and hopeful movies of the year. So, be ready to watch it at home when Lionsgate puts it out on Digital on June 27th and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Video on Demand on July 11th. Here’s the official synopsis for those who haven’t seen the movie.
During WWII, a solitary prospector crosses paths with Nazis in northern Finland. When the Nazis steal his gold, they quickly discover he is no ordinary miner. While there is no direct translation for the Finnish word “sisu,” the legendary ex-commando will embody what it means: a white-knuckled form of courage and unimaginable determination in the face of overwhelming odds. And this one-man death squad will go to outrageous lengths to get his gold back — even if it means killing every last Nazi in his path.

Here’s what we had to say about Sisu in our 98% review.
In this climate of darkness and despair, one movie could punch through all of that and then have some more room to go through to the light. It might take a bit of style from Quentin Tarantino, John Wick, John Carpenter, and some other action movies of recent memory, but that all coalesce into the masterstroke that is Sisu.
If you’re in need of a movie to bring your spirits up and excite you with Nazis getting murdered in increasingly cartoonish ways, this is the one for you.
