    For most of the run-time, Welcome To The Punch is thrillingly cinematic, beautifully made, smarter and funnier than you'd expect, and a phenomenal showcase for Creevy and his team.

    A confident, ambitious and action-rich Brit thriller, albeit one whose characters and clarity suffer from the frantic intensity of its pacing.

    Writer-director Eran Creevy demonstrates little facility for kineticism — one of the movie’s best scenes gets flat-out ruined when he abruptly shifts to hackneyed slo-mo — and his cynical plot gets so convoluted that one of the bad guys has to break it down for the audience in a climactic monologue-at-gunpoint.

    The Good: Great performances from McAvoy, Strong, and Harris. Some of their scenes are just flat out awesome and carry the film. The beginning was well done and grabs your interest right off the bat.

    The Bad: Sadly, it struggles to keep your interest and becomes a pretty straight forward crime drama. Runs 1:39 but feels much longer as it slows down quite a bit in the middle and towards the end. The ending wasn't very satisfying.
