Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 8, 2017, A very good film - highly underrated - I thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my son when he borrowed it and he is the world's worse film critic, he can find fault with any film and when he returned it he floored me by saying that it was a very impressive film, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 19, 2019.

The film follows the events that happen when lifelong criminal A good British action film is hard to come by, one that emulates and builds on old school action directors like John Woo and John McTiernan is even harder. No, this film is reasonably entertaining, but I don't know, I for one was kind of hoping for some more thrills out of this Danny Boyle film. It is a little predictable. Again, the film isn't as frequently pretty as you might hope, but it is fairly good-looking all the way through, with some really pretty moments, and that's enough to give the film a reasonably strong visual style that makes the overstylization a bit easier to forgive, especially when it, along with most every other prominent stylistic touch, is really played up during the action sequences.

Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2015. Welcome of the Punch has all of the hallmarks of a dramatic noir-type genre piece. On top of that, McAvoy is just so darn charming that it's hard to not be somewhat interested in seeing one of his films, such as this one, which could use McAvoy's engagement value, because even though this thriller is decent, its "punch" gets watered down (Get it?) Don’t worry, it won’t take long. I was really looking forward to this film as I am a fan of Mark Strong but I felt that it was a little slow and perhaps the character that McAvoy was cast to play was not suitable for him and I was disappointed by this as I usually like James McAvoy in other roles. We won’t be able to verify your ticket today, but it’s great to know for the future. Even the score contributed to the tense atmosphere; I gotta tell you that I enjoyed it thoroughly! I wouldn't say that the film is as overstylized as certain people say, partly because what the style lacks in cooperation with substance it typically makes up for with effectiveness, but it should still come as no surprise that Eran Creevy is a seasoned music video director, as there are too many areas in which Creevy fleshes out style at the expense of fleshing out substance, resulting, not just in emotional distance, but in an unevenness in storytelling structure that would be more glaring if storytelling wasn't at least consistent in being too lazy to compensate for the writing issues. |, March 27, 2013 © 2020 Collider Cryptomedia, Inc.

Welcome to the Punch is a little deeper and more thoughtful than most police dramas -- but not quite enough to surmount its thinly written characters and numbing violence. |, November 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 Action scenes were well done and I guess the big twist at the end was pretty good, but I felt disappointed on the abrupt ending. Somewhat grim, keep in mind the subject matter, this isn't Alice in Wonderland, it's about gun running and crooked cops and politicians. Near-miraculously, the film is saved, taking its share of beatings from lazy spells in storytelling, but ultimately retaining decency, at least in its looks.

Rentals include 30 days to start watching this video and 48 hours to finish once started. Well, it's not like they were going to heavily market this film's director and writer, because Wikipedia says that Eran Creevy is most "famous" for doing "Shifty", thus telling you that Wikipedia is, in fact, not always accurate, because there isn't anything famous about "Shifty", yet that didn't stop Jason Flemyng from hopping on board yet another film by Eran Creevy. However, it still suffers from some of the cliches of the genre, namely predictability, especially as it concerns one character's fate. 2/5 Stars, This film's title is missing someone slamming down a phone, triggering hard speed rock and a slow-motion explosion behind James McAvoy, it's so hardcore, which I suppose means that this film's title is actually more exciting than the film itself. Arrived on time, great condition. | Rating: 3/5, November 21, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 The following weapons were used in the film Welcome to the Punch: Contents. Well, for one thing, the plot is so complex that it … One can hope that by focusing more on style than substance, director Eran Creevy really fleshes out the visual style of this film, but you can settle down, as the film isn't exactly stunning, though it is handsome, as cinematographer Ed Wild celebrates Creevy's uniquely icy taste in coloring with an often subtly dreamy lighting that consistently draws you into the thriller as a well-polished piece, and sometimes proves to be gorgeous. | Rating: 3/5 Without directorial kick, films this lazily written and conventional can fall far, but, like I said, by some kind of miracle, the final product stands as reasonably engaging, largely thanks to the moments in which Creevy does get to be relatively realized as a storyteller without having to rely too much on style, gracing atmosphere with a certain thoughtfulness that soaks up what intrigue there is to this often rather superficial and familiar plot. | Rating: B Please reference “Error Code 2121” when contacting customer service. This would be alright and all if the film wasn't lazy in plenty of other areas of storytelling, being too unevenly paced, too focused on style over substance and too superficial with its characterization to escape underwhelmingness, as well as a great risk for collapse into mediocrity. The characters talk with a deep-rooted intensity, and the actions seem as if there should be weight, yet it all falls on deaf ears because of one simple problem- the narrative. Set in against the backdrop of a criminal London underworld, the film follows a complex heist gone wrong storyline, one that quickly delves in to a web of political intrigue and relentless violence. |, March 29, 2013 Automatik, March 29, 2013 This 10-digit number is your confirmation number.

After which, Max is placed on the case full time, even as his partner Sarah Hawks(Andrea Riseborough) worries that he might be too emotionally involved, only to be expected considering that Jacob kneecapped him the last time he tried to capture him.
