Welcome To The Punch
Eran Creevy’s exciting, ambitious Brit action thriller about corrupt cops, hardened criminals and a political conspiracy.
Good points: top notch cast (James McAvoy, Mark Strong, Johnny Harris, David Tennent, Andrea Riseborough, Peter Mullan), superbly handled set pieces (opening heist, Icelandic hideaway raid, hotel shoot-out, Mexican standoff at Nan’s, container yard scrap), and confident, accomplished direction.
Bad points: virtually no character development, risible dialogue, and the feeling that budget constraints short-changed even the excellent action sequences. Still, look forward to seeing more from Creevy.
