    Come for Statham's boozy Sergeant. Stay for Considine's gay Inspector. Fall in love with Gillen's British "Scorpio Killer". This is a great cop movie.

    More filler than thriller, action or anything. Lester isn't a director who makes a difference, but his movie does more or less what you expect it to do. A genre film, not much more than that. Statham gets to kick ass just a few times, the opening being one of them. Hurling appears to be a cross between hockey and murder. I didn't know that. His scrounging of drinks and bites is sort of a running gag.

    It has more…

    For a film starring walking led pipe Jason Statham, with a title as exciting as Blitz, you'd be forgiven for expecting a product more from The Stath's usual oeuvre. Indeed the very first scene of Elliott Lester's adaptation of Ken Bruen's novel suggests as much, with Jason's hard man, edgy Lahdahn copper Brant taking down three youffs who are breaking into someone's car with a hurling bat (yes hurling) and several typically gruff put downs. Great! You think. Another film…

    Yeah I know, it's yet another Jason Statham generic action movie. I just wanted to watch something that wouldn't be horrible and since his films usually have some semblance of entertainment I figured it couldn't be a bad idea.

    Well Blitz is just about the definition of that. It's the usual Statham movie where he's either a cop, soldier, former cop, gangster etc. He is an…

    6/10: A very good "old-school" crime thriller where the violence are real and gruesome. The film could keep you in suspense without using any sort of explosions or CGIs, just plain simple camerawork and editing did the trick. Another thing that I like about this movie is Statham's brilliant sarcasms that had given me a good chuckle.

    It sounded like a really interesting team-up. Paddy Considine and Jason Statham are a pretty bizarre combination by anyone's reckoning. However, this odd pairing reflects the rather odd mix-up of styles throughout the film.

    First thing that ought to made clear: This is not an action movie. Yes, I know Jason Statham's name is on the poster, but that means nothing. This is not a Jason Statham action blockbuster. No, instead this is a crime thriller. Now, I say crime…

    My review -- this film is now on Blu-Ray and I could not find the budget but I could find the box office takings which stood at roughly $15 million, but having said that this project feels like and it looks like perhaps a $20 million budget but I have no statistics to prove that. The storyline/contents well us as viewers meet Detective Sergeant Tom Brant as he serves his own unique justice on some local criminals, but in his…

    There's a serial killer targetting the Coppers of south east London and Statham doesn't carry a pencil.

    Not watched many Jason Statham films but the ones I have he is a misogynistic sexist over testosterone loner - no different with this one - and low and behold Aiden Gill was a psychotic sociopath which is not far from all the other roles I've seen him - so I was kept comfortable in my expectations - it filled in 90 mins and I enjoyed pausing and googling the buildings to see if they were real - yes there is a Peacocks gym in London!
