Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Tough, uncompromising and totally un-PC cop Brant (Jason Statham) joins forces with Officer DC Porter Nash (Paddy Considine) to hunt down a serial killer (Aiden Gillen) who has been targeting police officers. This fast-paced action-thriller is a raw, gritty tale of moral ambiguity, outsiders and the sacrifices the police make to keep crime off the streets.

About the Actor

Jason Statham: The Expendables, The Mechanic, Crank, Transporter, The Bank Job, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, to name a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hardcore action July 6, 2011
Format:DVD
A serial killer targeting cops meets his match in Statham, whose acting here marks a strong inprovement over his previous work. There's still enough action for five or six movies, but the plotline is relevant too. Never slows down for a second, and is a must for any fan of Statham.

4.0 out of 5 stars Above-average cop-oriented thriller August 17, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Judge Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict-- Based on the cover art and synopsis, Blitz looks like just another Jason Statham vehicle where our muscle-bound hero careens through London, bashing heads until he finds the killer. I was perfectly okay with that. Instead, Blitz is much more of an ensemble piece than it first appears. In addition to Statham's "killer cop," we get his boss Porter Nash (Paddy Considine, The Bourne Ultimatum) a homosexual cop with a past; Elizabeth Falls, a friend who's just got out of rehab after a stint as an undercover drug cop; and Blitz himself (Aiden Gillean, The Wire), a compelling, smarmy killer who makes the perfect villain. It helps that all these characters are played by excellent actors.

More importantly, this cast of characters allows Blitz to tell a story that's a little more complicated than "catch the killer." Obviously finding Blitz is the central story here, but the film weaves in police violence and corruption, the media's complicity in that violence, drug addiction, homosexuality, and burnout. Of course the film doesn't have the most original things to say about these issues, but it's nice to see a cop film that isn't afraid to balance the action with a bit of intellect. The multiple storylines also allow the film to build tension in the main story. The audience knows who the killer is very early on (and the cops find out not much later). By weaving the other stories into the capture of Blitz, the film builds tension by not proceeding to the obvious showdown between good guys and bad guy. Still, it wouldn't be a Jason Statham film without him kicking in some heads and cracking wise. Blitz doesn't ignore those moments, offering some satisfying cracks from Statham, both physical and verbal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but nothing special either August 28, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
After sitting on the shelf for past couple years (who knows why), Blitz has finally arrived here in the States. Jason Statham stars as a take-no-prisoners British cop that gets teamed with a fairly straight-laced and loathed superior (Paddy Considine) to hunt down a vicious cop killer (Aiden Gillen). That's pretty much it for Blitz in terms of story, other than a subplot involving a drug-raddled female officer, but for the most part it delivers the goods in terms of cop procedural. Considering Statham's string of action films, Blitz is a bit different as it doesn't offer the kind of flashy action we expect to see Statham starring in, which is a good thing. However, where Blitz falters is with its would-be examination of good and evil, combined with the fact that the film as a whole just seems to run about 15 minutes too long. Those flaws aside, Blitz isn't a bad endeavor, and the main actors involved do quite well in their roles, so there's plenty worse films you could waste your time with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violent movie, great action! July 3, 2013
Format:DVD
I've really grown to love Jason Statham; he's Britain's latest hardman in movies, perhaps taking the crown from Ray Winstone. Is the 'Stath' a great actor; not necessarily, but he looks good, he's tough and macho, has a designer beard that millions of less swarthy guys would kill for, he is convincing and he is charismatic and a great screen presence. I watched 'Blitz' not particularly expecting that much, but enjoyed it from start to finish. Good plot, good characters, great London locations and a film that doesn't pull any punches and does what it says on the tin. We want action, and that's what we get! So if you like Statham, hard-edged British crime thrillers and good acting and great action/violence/suspense, this is the film for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty British Cop Drama June 20, 2013
Format:DVD
I came across this by accident. I like Stratham so I thought I'd give it a shot. WOW! What a great gritty cop drama. Strahtam delivers. In fact, this role was made for him. If he's not the next Clint Eastwood or John Wayne, then I don't know who is.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Cop Killer and A Killer Cop August 26, 2011
Format:DVD
The plot of the movie is contained in the title of this review. There is a lot of action in this movie, that is for sure. We have a typical 'hero and a villain' story.

The story takes place in London, so it was little hard to understand the characters, but we put the subtitles on, which helped a lot. The hero in this movie was not a likeable character. He harasses people around him, and is obnoxious most of the movie. In fact, the villain becomes a cop killer because he was beaten badly by the hero of the movie in the past.

Soo, this is an OK movie to watch. I liked 'The Mechanic' by Jason Statham much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jason Statham in his Stride! September 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
BLITZ is very much worth watching. Yes, it is another exploration of what makes a good and bad cop, but this time the story is so well told and the actors are so convincing that once this film has 'blitzed' by the viewer's eyes, watching it again will be an even more positive experience. Based on the novel by Ken Bruen and adapted for the screen with crackling dialogue by Nathan Parker, the story of the film is not so much one that is tough to follow - that's not the point - it is how the characters deploy themselves that makes it explode. Elliot Lester shows his mettle as an action director who understands character development and allows it to develop very naturally.

Detective Sargeant Tom Brant (Jason Statham) has his own way of catching and punishing criminals and his quick temper and disgust for perpetrators tends to make him act quickly and violently, a trait that gets him into trouble with his superiors. A serial cop killer who goes by the name of Blitz or Barry Weiss (Aidan Gillen) is out to kill as many cops as possible because of the way Brant treated him in a pool hall brawl a few years ago. One of the cops - Chief Inspector James Roberts (Mark Rylance) is victimized and put on leave and is replaced by gay cop Porter Nash (Paddy Considine). Initially at odds because of Brant's curt put down of Nash's lifestyle, the two finally join hands, discover why they are motivated to be violent from a very similar background, and the two set out to capture the Blitz. The media gets involved with reporter Dunlop (David Morrisey) from a tip from the serial killer who really is after fame.
