The critical consensus

A rough-cut crime thriller that sees Jason Statham back on familiar turf and doing what he does best.

***(*)(*)David Hughes, Empire Online, 16/05/2011

Statham’s cockney Kojak amuses. But Blitz’s hardboiled detective story feels as much of a dinosaur as its lead character and constant shifts of tone make it a tough film to love.

**(*)(*)(*)Total Film, 16/05/2011

One to file under so bad it’s almost good.

**(*)(*)(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 19/05/2011

At times acceptable, at times like a truly mediocre episode of Silent Witness.

Dominic Radcliffe, Little White Lies, 19/05/2011

A story that's strong on location work, but faulty in suspense and notably gruesome in its violence.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 20/05/2011

It's gritty, down and dirty and Statham has never been better.

****(*)Daily Record, 20/05/2011

An efficient, well performed thriller.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 20/05/2011

So moronic, it could be a satire.

Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 19/05/2011

A subplot involving an undercover colleague adds unnecessary flab, but ultimately Blitz knows exactly where its strength lies.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 21/05/2011

It is an unedifying film, slickly directed and photographed, but lacking conviction and much inferior to the police procedurals you can see any night on television.

Philip French, The Observer, 22/05/2011
