Movie Review 2: Blitz

Click Here For Movie Trailer

This is just one of my favourite movie
because it has one of my favourite actor in it!
Jason Statham (as Tom Brant)
I just love his sadistic look.

Aside from Transporter the movie
now he's acting as the main character
in Blitz [2011]


The movie begins with Detective Sergeant (DS)
Tom Brant,
a hot headed police officer from
a turbulent South East London police station,
beating up three youngsters,
who are trying to steal a car, with a hurley.
Brant is approached by PC Elizabeth Falls
asking to help her in passing her Sergeant's exam.
Brant advises her to give it some time
as she has come out of rehab recently.
Falls had previously worked undercover
for the drugs squad and became addicted.
Brant is also warned by his superior
to control his actions.
It transpires during a session between
Brant and a police psychologist
who mentions incidents involving
bugging the Superintendent's office,
beating a person unconscious in a billiards hall
and the earlier assault on the three youths.

Brant goes to the funeral of the
Chief Inspector Roberts's wife.
The same night PC Sandra Bates
is shot dead by an unknown assailant.
Sgt Porter Nash
is transferred from West London Branch
as Acting Inspector,
in place of Roberts who is on extended leave.
A boy approaches PC Falls in her home
and asks for help as he thinks he killed someone
during a gang attack.
Falls asks Brant for a favour
and he gives her the name of
Detective Inspector (DI) Craig Stokes.
The Shooter, Barry Weiss,
calls reporter Harold Dunlop and tells him
that he is the killer.
He asks Dunlop to pick between seven and eight
and when Dunlop picks eight,
Weiss tells him that's the number of cops he will kill.
Weiss walks down the street
and shoots PC Theo Nelson, who is sitting in his car.

The South East London station
is thrown into chaos due to the shootings.
Brant meets with an informant Radnor
who points him in the direction of Weiss,
telling him that Weiss had previously boasted
about setting a police dog on fire "for practice".
Brant meets Nash and tells him
about his personal problem of recurring blackouts.
Nash tells him that Brant might be experiencing burn out
based on his personal experience,
as well as confiding that he once attacked
a paedophile in his house as there was not
sufficient evidence to convict him.
Brant tells him about the lead
and they both decide to visit Weiss.
Meanwhile Chief Inspector Roberts
rejoins his duty.
At Weiss's apartment Brant recognises
him as the guy whom he beat in the billiards hall.

Weiss panics after the visit and flees his apartment.
Unknown to both parties Radnor is spying
on Weiss and, on seeing Weiss leave,
Radnor sifts through his rubbish
and finds a parking receipt.
Weiss follows Roberts to his apartment
and after a struggle,
he kills him by pulverising his head with a hammer.
Realising his trail of forensic evidence
he steals a police uniform and Roberts's badge
and burns the flat.
He then calls Dunlop and tells him
about the murder and that he is now
calling himself Blitz.
Nash informs Brant about the incident.

Radnor goes to the parking garage
and finds Weiss's car.
He opens it and finds trophies of his kills.
He calls Dunlop and asks for £50,000
in exchange for revealing the killer's identity.
Falls goes to meet DI Stokes and asks him
to bury the name of the boy
and in return Stokes asks her out for a drink.
Dunlop meets Radnor and they go the parking garage
where Radnor shows him the car
and the evidence in it.
However Weiss sees this and quickly
removes the evidence from the car.
He follows them to a bar and kills Radnor
in the men's toilet before Radnor
can reveal his identity to Dunlop.

Dunlop tells Brant and Nash
about his meeting with Radnor
and the location of the parked car.
When they arrive, however,
the car is empty and the building's CCTV is faulty,
giving them no evidence on Weiss.
Falls and Stokes meet for a drink,
as Weiss watches them from across the street.
In the station Brant finds out
the connection between
the dead police officers and Weiss.
Weiss is attacking all the cops
who arrested him and Falls is next in line.
Stokes drops Falls at her home
and says he will call her tomorrow,
which Falls interprets
as rejection and angrily leaves the car.

Weiss attacks Falls but the boy who Falls
was trying to protect interrupts
and is killed instead.
Brant and Nash visit Weiss's apartment and,
on finding it abandoned,
decide to release his photo to the media.
A taxi driver identifies him
and leads the police to his location.
He briefly escapes but is pursued by Brant
and caught in a train yard
near Paddington.
Falls, traumatised by the attack,
has a relapse and steals drugs from a dealer.

At the station Brant, Nash and the Chief Inspector
discuss that Weiss may walk
due to the lack of evidence.
Later Brant talks to Nash about the paedophile
incident but Nash declines to talk any further.
Brant taunts Weiss about his name 'Blitz'
and tells him he is nothing,
but is unable to provoke him
into admitting to the killings.
Meanwhile Stokes finds out from his informant
that Falls is stealing drugs
from dealers and contacts Brant.
They reach her house and find her intoxicated,
then throw away the drugs
and help her regain her senses.

Weiss is released but placed under surveillance.
He returns to his flat
and changes into the police uniform
stolen from Roberts's flat,
then dodges the surveillance
and drives to Roberts's funeral.
There, he finds Brant and at that time
Brant receives a text message and leaves.
Weiss follows him to the parking garage
he had previously left his evidence in.

After following him up a flight of stairs,
Weiss aims his pistol at Brant
and tells him to face him.
But when he turns around,
it is Nash and Brant attacks Weiss
from behind with a crowbar.
Nash picks up the pistol Weiss dropped,
the same gun used in the previous killings,
and hands it to Brant.
Weiss quickly realizes Brant's intentions
and warns him how his death
would be treated by the media.
Brant informs him that there was no evidence,
that Weiss was cleared
and is no longer under police investigation,
that the real 'Blitz' was partial
to people in uniform and shooting them
with the same pistol he is holding.
Brant then shoots him in the head.
Brant and Nash leave the rooftop
with Brant joking that the case might remain unsolved.
The movie ends with Brant
releasing two dogs on Harold Dunlop.


My comment towards this movie is
Weiss looks so gay.
I mean literally!
If you've watched the movie
he's part will always be shown
when he's half naked.
Somewhat like a rapist or something,
which is really scary.

Aside from that I love the British accent.
However, the ending towards it
is quite hard to understand
when Brant is saying something about
who is Blitz
and then the scene
is just like how a murderer would attempt.
Police being a murderer?
The good guys are actually the bad ones? confusing
But I love the movie anyways :3

That's All For Now!
Thank You For The Visit!
