When you watch a movie with Jason Statham, whatever your opinion is about him, you know exactly what to expect. Blitz is no exception to this. As detective sergeant Tom Brant he immediately (at the start of the movie) he beats a couple of criminals to pulp. He’s a cop with a short fuse and this results in regular arguments with his superiors. His knowledge and techniques are needed however when a crazy man starts killing cops. It’s up to him to find the guy.
He has to work together with Porter Nash (Paddy Considine), who isn’t very popular among the force because of his sexual preference. I doesn’t take them long find out who is responsible for the murders. Will they catch the killer in time before he makes another victim?
Although Blitz is a Jason Statham movie in which Statham plays the role he usually does (which I
always enjoy seeing) it’s not him who is the star of the show. To me it was Aidan Gillen (who
most of you will recognise as mayor “Tommy” Carcetti in The Wire) in his role as Blitz. He
manages to convincingly play a dangerous and unpredictable psychopath which reminded me a bit of Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight. He completely disappears in his role and it’s a joy to watch him doing it. If you are looking for an entertaining action movie then Blitz is a good choice.
