Blitz: Jason Statham and the Cop Killer

In a rare departure from his usual role, Jason Statham will play a hard-ass cop who beats the crap out of people. But the big change is that it’s supposed to be good. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy seeing the Stath lay the beat-down as much as the next guy, but most of his movies aren’t what you call…plot heavy. Well this one might not be either, but currently on IMDb it has a 9/10, and Rotten Tomatoes has yet to give it a negative review.

The story is about a guy – Blitz – who is going around and murdering cops. That’s not nice. Statham is a cop who doesn’t want to be murdered by some hipster in neon colored glasses, so he gets proactive. Here is the trailer…

Aside from the Stath, we also get Blitz himself, played by Aidan Gillen who was on the master work HBO show The Wire, and is currently on the master work HBO show A Game of Thrones.

Also showing up in the trailer was Paddy Considine, who was in Cinderella Man, and more importantly, the Edgar Wright masterpiece Hot Fuzz. Guy is great.

So what do you think – Yeah or Nay?
