Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's hard to know how seriously anyone besides Statham is taking this - but that only adds to its absurd, cock-eyed charm."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"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."
‑ Andrew Simpson, Fan The Fire
"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."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"It's gritty, down and dirty, and Statham has never been better."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"While the film recognises pressure and camaraderie, the plot is stretched like an under-sized string vest over a bulging six pack."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"prospathei na prosferei skhnothetikh poikilia s' ena senario poy para toys grhgoroys rythmoys toy, paramenei kommataki monotono ki epanalhptiko, omws tis sepies toy tis exeis ksanadei kai ta plana toy prodidoyn amhxania"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"...Lester is no Don Siegel and Statham, though credibly formidable, lacks the conscience that made Harry Callahan human..."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"All three men give searing performances and young cinematographer Robert Hardy dwells with palpable relief on their expressive features."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"The denouement strains credibility, relying on a character showing restraint when they've merrily pulled the trigger for the rest of the film."
‑ Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo
"It's all been seen before and will be seen again, and again."
‑ Dominic Radcliffe, Little White Lies
"As conventional as you can get without needing an epilogue that says "...next week on Blitz.""
‑ Scott Weinberg, Twitch
"Ultimately Blitz knows exactly where its strength lies."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"Not for the sensitive, this is an efficient, well performed thriller that makes a few unconvincing stabs at social commentary."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"Who knows, we might be looking at the evolution of the guilty-pleasure movie - padded out with top-drawer talent to spare audience blushes."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
"This British crime thriller is so unapologetic about recycling cliches that it's actually hilariously good fun to watch."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
