Smart, sharp, shocking, and at times bloody (and bloodily) hilarious, Blitz's witty script and pacy action elevates its simple premise into a brilliantly gritty tale of moral ambiguity.

As conventional as you can get without needing an epilogue that says "...next week on Blitz."

America, where Statham does the majority of his work these days, seems to appreciate his particular talents. On this evidence, he might want to stick to Hollywood.

...Lester is no Don Siegel and Statham, though credibly formidable, lacks the conscience that made Harry Callahan human...

Ultimately Blitz knows exactly where its strength lies.

It is an unedifying film, slickly directed and photographed, but lacking conviction and much inferior to the police procedurals you can see any night on television.
May 20, 2011
All three men give searing performances and young cinematographer Robert Hardy dwells with palpable relief on their expressive features.

May 20, 2011
Not for the sensitive, this is an efficient, well performed thriller that makes a few unconvincing stabs at social commentary.

It's gritty, down and dirty, and Statham has never been better.

May 20, 2011
The denouement strains credibility, relying on a character showing restraint when they've merrily pulled the trigger for the rest of the film.
May 19, 2011
Who knows, we might be looking at the evolution of the guilty-pleasure movie - padded out with top-drawer talent to spare audience blushes.
May 19, 2011
While the film recognises pressure and camaraderie, the plot is stretched like an under-sized string vest over a bulging six pack.

It's all been seen before and will be seen again, and again.

This British crime thriller is so unapologetic about recycling cliches that it's actually hilariously good fun to watch.

May 19, 2011
Statham gives a good account of himself as the no-nonsense Detective Brant, handy with his fists and ready with a wry one-liner, but an unoriginal plot and a general lack of excitement don't do justice to either him or the high-calibre supporting cast.

It's definitely not far from Cliché Central. But if you're looking for Credibility Street, you'll soon get lost.

How can we sleep for grief that we don't have more films - even bad ones - starring Rylance?

May 18, 2011
It's Statham meets The Bill, meets Life on Mars, meets Death Wish, all cranked up with in-your-face attitude that makes no apologies ...

It's hard to know how seriously anyone besides Statham is taking this - but that only adds to its absurd, cock-eyed charm.
