    Jason Statham's characters are usually angry, but this one seems meaner than usual. Maybe it's because he lives in a crapsack world where everything seems terrible and the police exist to defend themselves more than the public. Statham doesn't do any martial arts; the closest he gets is when he beats up some punks at the beginning and has a fight with the bad guy later. Mostly, he walks around fuming, seeming like he'll explode on anyone who dares talk…

    É um thriller bem simples e genérico, sem se preocupar em apresentar nada de novo. Mas dentro de suas pretensões faz o que promete com relativa eficiência e segurança.

    Komischer Film, irgendwie zwischendurch ein Buddymovie, dann wieder ein Krimithriller und dann ein wenig typisches Stathamkloppervehikel.
    Komischerweise samt Handlungssträngen die absolut egal sind mit Figuren die überhaupt nichts mit der Haupthandlung zu tun haben.
    Doch die gute prominente Besetzung macht einiges wett: Statham, Considine, Gillen und auch Luke Evans klingen schon fasst wie ein feuchter Traum.
    Es wirkt komplett als wäre es ein langer Pilotfilm zu einer Serie(erinnert sehr stark an ,,Luther,,), die ich dann doch gerne sehen würde da…

    Anything with Jason Stratham is good right?

    Jason Statham always looks like a guy nursing a hangover. Here he does enough drinking to actually merit that look as a no-nonsense detective who enjoys a ruckus. Playing another of those cops who doesn't give a shit about authority or the consequences of his actions, he gets drawn into a hunt for a cop-killer who may well have his name on his hit list. Some of this works pretty well, but again the script is full of clichés and…

    Totally formulaic and predictable. But I do like Jason Statham.

    I love big budget (ok: decent budget) movies set in London. The execution of this one is fine, but the story is rather pedestrian - especially compared to the high quality crime tv stuff the Brits can do. The Stath is always highly watchable though, and he shares a couple of nice scenes with Considine that make this movie worthwhile.

    Interesting police drama, with many holes, but nonetheless still entertaining.

    Policeman must catch thieves. Policeman may not beat up the bad guys too much, as the press will write about it. What a story! Action which you never would have expected the outcome. But that is OK as this is a Statham action flick.

    The movie starts out very bad. The pacing, editing, and really everything about the beginning half hour or so is just garbage.

    The movie picks up from then, but the main problem from this point is that the main character, played by Jason Statham is a giant asshole who I can't sympathize with at all.

    There are a few side characters who would've been very great protagonists, but Statham isn't likable at all in this one.

    Aidan Gillen is good, but as the antagonist he has no real motivation besides "I like killing police".

    I'm currently reading The Murder Bag by Tony Parsons which reads with a clear fervent ambition be adapted for the screen; ideally the cinema given its occasionally somewhat unrealistic and glamourous tone - the hero lives in a converted loft apartment overlooking Smithfield on a DC's salary, like it's Flashdance or something! With that in mind I wanted to watch something similar and on my list of possible suspects were this and Welcome to the Punch*.

    In the end I…
