Boring vigilante cop film

The movie starts out with some thugs breaking into a car. Jason Statham does some illegal high sticking as he subdues them. He is a vigilante cop molded after Dirty Harry. The newspapers are crucifying him in the headlines, and he is nearly out of a job in London. Soon a cop serial killer (Aidan Gillen) appears on the scene. We know he is the killer as does the police. One of his killings is done in broad day light, yet they have trouble arresting him, even after they search his flat. And what was with the fat chicks dancing pretending to be sexy?

We have seen rogue cop movies before and generally like them. This one brings nothing new to the table. If you are a fan of Statham's deadpan approach you might enjoy this film. Personally I felt, been there, done that, got the t-shirt while watching this film. The movie was boring even as Jason was shooting the bad guys in the head.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

Jason Statham hunts a cop-killer in London

DS Tom Brant is a tough south London cop is a reputation for getting rougher than is strictly necessary; as we are introduced to him he is dealing with a trio of young thugs with a Hurling stick. Soon he, and just about every other police officer. Is looking for a man who shot a police woman in cold blood. It isn't long before a policeman is also killed and it is apparent that somebody is targeting the police. The killer, who refers to himself as 'Blitz' contacts a reporter and makes it apparent that he intends to keep on killing police officers. Acting DI Porter Nash is put in charge of the case and working with Brant they close in on the man Brant is convinced is guilty; unfortunately the evidence required to hold their suspect isn't strong enough. In a secondary plot thread PC Elizabeth Falls, who works under Brant, it trying to help a youth who is in trouble as well as deal with a drug habit she picked up while working undercover.

This is a solid enough police thriller that fans of Jason Statham will probably enjoy; not surprisingly he plays tough cop Brant… anybody who has seen any of his films will know what to expect; he may not have the greatest range but what he does he does well. Paddy Considine does a good job as Nash; a gay cop who avoids any clichés. Aidan Gillen is suitably menacing as the killer but not as impressive as he is in 'Game of Thrones'… although to be fair that would be difficult. Zawe Ashton is good as PC Falls as is David Morrissey as reporter Harold Dunlop. People wanting full on action may be a bit disappointed but there is still some action as well as some fairly brutal violence. Overall I'd recommend this to fans of Jason Statham; it isn't his best film but it is still a decent way to pass an hour and a half.

Not much more as your average TV police series

A though cop named Tom Brant (Jason Statham) is going through a rough time: he drinks to much, has problems focusing and uses way to much violence against criminals. But Brant soon has a focus for his anger when a mysterious serial killer starts killing cops on by one. He teams up with newly transferred Sgt Porter Nash to try to catch this serial killer who likes to call himself 'Blitz', after Blitz Krieg.

Blitz is a simple police movie with a few attempts at drama and some fine action scenes. Statham is descent in this film and these kind of roles are working for him, although there could be more humor thrown in; his character is a bit to one-dimensional. The chemistry between his partner Nash (played by Paddy Considine) also works good on screen, they start off rough but eventually connect as the film progresses. Aidan Gillen also does a descent job playing the insane serial killer, but they could make him more menacing.

What didn't work for me at all was the sub-plot with the female cop Elizabeth Falls who needed Brant's help to solve her own problems. They could just leave that out and focus more on the main plot, this attempt at drama and to show that Brant also has 'feelings' felt to forced for me. The ending was also a bit of a let down, it almost felt like they had to quickly finish it because they were out of budget.

All in all it's a slightly above average crime movie but it doesn't offer much more then an episode of your favorite crime TV series.
