4.0 out of 5 stars The Enemy Of My Enemy: Stylized Violence And A Killer Cast Highlight This British Crime Saga July 19 2013
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Despite a somewhat tepid critical reaction, I was still looking forward to the British crime drama "Welcome to the Punch." The movie is loaded with a tremendous cast that includes James McAvoy, Mark Strong, David Morrissey, Peter Mullan, and Andrea Riseborough. This, along with stylish action and beautiful cinematography, made the film a lot more involving than I had anticipated. Trust me, nighttime in downtown London has never looked so glorious! At the heart of "Welcome to the Punch" is a weathered cop (McAvoy) and the seasoned criminal (Strong) that haunts him. We've seen this obsessed cat-and-mouse dynamic played out in countless other films, but the evolution of their relationship still seemed quite fresh. As they both get involved in a dense plot of corruption and murder, they may have surprising common interests. And as the film progresses, I was more and more caught up in this developing bond. In the capable hands of McAvoy and Strong, this tenuous alliance has more impact and tension than a dozen well choreographed shoot-outs.

The movie begins with a rather improbable chase through the deserted streets of London. McAvoy pursues Strong relentlessly and single-handedly before being shot through the knee. With Strong escaping, McAvoy's knee injury remains a physical reminder of this fateful night that changed his career irrevocably. Fast forwarding three years, McAvoy is distant and surly. Paired with Riseborough, the two are investigating a recent shooting that is leading nowhere. When, however, Strong's son is apprehended with a gunshot wound, department attention shifts to the potential to draw his father out of hiding. As Strong returns to action to find out what happened to his son, a reinvigorated McAvoy sees a chance at redemption. What neither of them expect, though, is that both quests will uncover a much bigger picture. There is nothing particularly new in the plotting of "Welcome to the Punch." Questions of greed, police corruption, and political maneuvering paint a familiar story that has frequently been portrayed in films of this type. Ultimately, though, this one is sold by its actors.

From an action standpoint, "Welcome to the Punch" has plenty of fire power. It is a stylized violence, however, so over-the-top at times that it wouldn't be out of place in a John Woo epic (minus the requisite doves, of course). You might wonder in a hotel shoot-out why Strong can't hit a guy in the same room with an automatic weapon, but can slide across the floor under fire and hit a much smaller canister target. But such is the nature of these scenes. Instead of exploring the complicated back story in too much depth, the finale instead results in an uncompromising gun fight. By doing so, many of the plot threads are left twisting in the wind. I'd have preferred the screenplay to satisfy more of these unanswered questions. And for this lack of real resolution, I'd rate "Welcome to the Punch" at 3 1/2 stars. I will round up, though, for the central performances. I quite liked this one despite my reservations. KGHarris, 7/13.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was expecting... Nov. 3 2013
By JPS - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to watch an uncomplicated (and rather predictable) thriller packed with action and gun shooting with lots of bodies everywhere (at the end, at least), then this one will be for you, and you are likely to enjoy it at least as much as I did.

The characters are not exactly original - the once-wounded cop who has failed and the top gangster who got away but is forced to come back. The outcome - the two will be forced to ally with each other and face down, successfully of course, a major conspiracy - has virtually zero surprises. However, you know all that (or at least I did) before buying and watching the film. Both of the main characters played by James McAvoy (the cop) and Mark Strong (the gangster) are rather good in their respective roles.

There is nothing extraordinary with this film, not even the story itself. It's just a rather good and entertaining action film where you can sit back, relax and watch the show. It will clearly not win any Oscars but it was entertaining and uncomplicated, even if not very plausible. This was exactly what I expected and exactly what I got.

So I liked it and will accordingly rate it four stars...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good vs. bad: mutations of evil and forgiveness April 6 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Eran Creevy has written and directed a fast-paced, desperately confusing film that is tough to decipher and in many ways scorns credibility. But if action packed dark thrillers fill the bill for you then WELCOME TO THE PUNCH certainly will. Just be prepared that a lot of the story begs indulgence until the very end.

The film opens in medias res with a robbery where one perpetrator Jacob Sternwood (the always reliable Mark Strong is a very sold portrayal) wounds eager detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy looking a bit scruffy with a wannabe beard) in the leg. Three years later the story begins. Now `former criminal' Jacob Sternwood is forced to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway when his son Ruan (the very handsome and sensitive and underused Elyes Gabel) is involved in a heist gone wrong. This gives detective Max Lewinsky one last chance to catch the man he has always been after. His partner is a female version of Max - Sarah Hanks (Andrea Riseborough)- and the tow are under the leadership of detectives Thomas Geiger (David Morrissey) and Harvey Crown (Jason Flemyng). Events begin to change with eh entry of a new criminal Dean Warns (Johnny Harris) and his presence begins to open doors as to who is really a good guy and who is a bad guy. As they face off, they start to uncover a deeper conspiracy Jacob and Max both need to solve in order to survive.

The cast is uniformly fine, including the bit parts played by such actors as Daniel Kaluuya, Ruth Sheen, Daniel Mays and Dannielle Brent. The story involves good cop/bad cop, transformation of images, political snafus, and a lot of firepower. The plot is often too muddled to decipher but the action is fast and the acting is super. Grady Harp, April 13

3.0 out of 5 stars For fans of the British crime dramas this is well worth seeing. Little slow in parts but keeps you watching. I say B. July 18 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
"When you take him down you take him down hard and I'll make sure the whole world is watching." Max Lewinsky (McAvoy) is a detective who is good at what he does. When he finally gets the chance to stop Jacob Sternwood (Strong), the man he has been looking for, he ends up getting shot and Jacob gets away. Three years later Jacob's son winds up in the hospital and Max again sees a chance to take him down but the closer he gets to Jacob the more truths he begins to uncover. I have been a fan of the British crime dramas for awhile now. I was looking forward to seeing this one. This one isn't too bad but I have seen others that I have liked more. The acting is great and the story keeps you involved and interested to see what is going to happen. There are enough twists in the movie to keep you guessing. It does seem a little slow in some parts but for the most part this is a good movie and if you are a fan of the genre then you will enjoy this one as well. Overall, a movie I enjoyed being a fan of this type of movie. I give it a B.

3.0 out of 5 stars Modern-Day Noir in London: Well-Acted, Slick But Familiar May 18 2013
By Tsuyoshi - Published on Amazon.com
Executive-produced by Ridley Scott (among nineteen producers in all), "Welcome to the Punch" revolves around a London police detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy, "Last King of Scotland") hunting down a master criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong, Guy Ritchie-directed "Sherlock Holmes"). When Sternwood flies back home to meet his heavily injured son Ruan (Elyes Gabel), Max, still emotionally traumatized, is given another chance to capture Sternwood with his partner Sarah Hawks (Andrea Riseborough).

This is a sophomore work from a British director Eran Creevy ("Shifty"). He effectively uses the blue-tinted images of the deserted streets and buildings of London, but despite the stylish photography and slick narrative, the story and characters needs some more details.

The leading players deliver fine performances. The film's interesting cast includes Dannielle Brent, Jason Flemyng, Johnny Harris, Daniel Mays, David Morrissey and Peter Mullan. Peter Mullan gives some depth to an otherwise stereotypical role as Sternwood's trusted friend, but not enough, and Jason Flemyng and Daniel Mays are wasted in the roles that are forgettable.

Fast-paced modern-day noir "Welcome to the Punch" adds little to the genre. With two capable leads the film starts out well, but loses its momentum in the third act that gets more familiar and predictable. Still, all in all, this is a pretty satisfactory crime thriller with some nice camerawork.
