Refreshingly, this is a London-based crime flick that completely breaks with the usual chirpy Cockney formula. But have we really got to the stage where we have to tool-up Mr Tumnus?

For most of the run-time, Welcome To The Punch is thrillingly cinematic, beautifully made, smarter and funnier than you'd expect, and a phenomenal showcase for Creevy and his team.

Welcome To The Punch would be a lot more welcome if the action was less relentlessly generic and its characters less off-the-peg.

A confident, ambitious and action-rich Brit thriller, albeit one whose characters and clarity suffer from the frantic intensity of its pacing.

What Punch lacks in character, it makes up for in energy, inspiration and rampant ambition.

That Creevy has talent isn't in question; whether this substanceless stuff is the best outlet for it is another matter.
