Hot Press

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.

Mr Statham is a hard ass cop, no surprise there then, he's butch, gruff, unshaved and talks like 'Dirty Harry' we know where we are then.… More

Rather thick British in this film (I used the subtitles). It is a satisfying cat and mouse chase, with a really nice payoff at the end. There were some bits… More

A gritty hard thriller about a cop killer in London. It has a great well known UK cast, more TV than film though. The only real problem is the story they have… More

Jason Statham aside, Blitz comes across as a great British Drama, that you would perhaps expect to see as a Drama series. Whilst one of my top guys, Considine… More
