Blitz (2011) Review


Blitz is a 2011 British action thriller film directed by Elliott Lester and starring Jason Statham, Paddy Considine, Aidan Gillen, and David Morrissey. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Ken Bruen, which features his recurring characters Detective Sergeant Tom Brant and Chief Inspector James Roberts.


The narrative follows a violent police officer trying to catch a serial killer who has been murdering police officers in South East London. The film was released in the United Kingdom on 20 May 2011.


A serial killer is targeting police officers in South East London. After two police constables are shot dead and Chief Inspector Bruce Roberts (Mark Rylance) is bludgeoned to death, the hunt for the killer's identity begins.


Sergeant Porter Nash (Paddy Considine) is transferred to the South East London branch of the police to head the investigation, even though Nash is an outsider and widely ridiculed by his fellow officers for being openly gay. To his surprise he finds an unlikely ally in the hot-headed, gruff Detective Sergeant Tom Brant (Jason Statham), who has a history of violent incidents.
