Judging by the shots on Film4 seems to have cut a bit more than the R rated version. The throat slitting and shotgun blast to the head are both uncut though.

John Wick 2 is an 18 on 4K. Sony did the same thing with both Equalizer films and Brightburn, cut dvd and blu ray but uncut 4K. Don't know why Fox didn't do that with Red Sparrow though. All releases in the UK are cut.
