DVD & Blu-ray review: Welcome to the Punch (15)

Eran Creevy DVD/Blu-ray (100mins)

This Docklands-set crime thriller was a huge struggle. It took four attempts to get through it. A host of decent British actors fail to grapple with the clunky script and muddled plot about a master villain (Mark Strong), some political skulduggery and a damaged copper (James McAvoy). Eran Creevy, who excelled with the low-budget Shifty, comes a cropper with this quite unpleasant film.
