In every Summer Blockbuster season little movies sneak under the radar and just appear with little to no fanfare in multiplexes worldwide. One of those movies this year is Blitz.
From the offset you are under no illusion what type of police officer Tom Brant (Statham) is. Asleep on the couch with a bottle of whiskey in front, Brant awakens, has a glass and immediately proceeds to head out outside and deal with some youths that are trying to rob his car in a very interesting way. Unlike the usual Statham movies this cop does not know martial arts or carry a firearm. This time it’s set in the UK where a more realistic feel is applied to the character. For those of you that are fans are the excellent crime dramas produced by the BBC and ITV think Cracker, Prime Suspect and Luther.
