    So much great and completely naff Statham dialogue in this bitterly nasty cop thriller.

    A killer is terrorising a metropolitan city, and a rugged cop who plays by his own rules is the only one who can stop him. It’s not exactly the most specific of plot summaries, but practically a description of a whole genre that persisted throughout the 70s and 80s, starting with Dirty Harry way back in 1971. Seeing as Eastwood gave up on making Dirty Harry sequels a long time back, I guess we can look back fondly, dodgy politics…

    Logical but forgettable and bland, a cliche-kind of movie.

    It's full of feverishly potent performances, particularly by Paddy Considine, Aidan Gillen and Zawe Ashton, and fledgling cinematographer Robert Hardy settles distinctly on their most telling qualities. Still, this is a bland, forgettable and uninspired action hero vehicle, sleekly directed, but wanting in audacity. So even though it's a modern-day London-based Dirty Harry/Death Wish right-wing vigilante fantasy, it has the pizzazz and pace to keep you held.

    "I think this one'll remain unsolved."

    There are movies where rooting for Jason Statham isn't a painful proposition. In Blitz he plays a real piece of shit, a clumsy shade of Keitel's Bad Lieutenant: filled with terrible one-liners and desperate to remind the audience he's Irish at every turn.The plot is a mess of interweaving storylines, at least half of which receive no clear resolution. Unfortunately we spend the majority of the time with Statham. Aiden Gillen has fun with…

    So that's what a film by people who love The Boondock Saints looks like.

    Jason Statham plays Jason Statham and kicks some ass in London.

    Not his best film to be honest. Paddy Considines character came across as a man with no personality, and the main villain of the film was rather underwhelming to say the least.

    Nothing more to say!

    It's a Statham movie with a little bit of depth to it. I like that.

    CAPSULE REVIEW: When I think about Statham or any Statham movie I think 'dumb but fun' but this is 'dumb and really dumb'. There is this bootlicking quality in contemporary British crime thrillers/dramas and I don't know why. "Blitz" is a prime example of this alarming pop culture trend.
