Welcome to the Punch - Movie Synopsis & Plot

The second feature from acclaimed British director and filmmaker Eran Creevy, "Welcome to the Punch" is the story of two arch-nemeses: detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy; "X-Men: First Class," "Wanted") and master criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong; "Sherlock Holmes," "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Guard"). When Sternwood escaped three years ago after a daring robbery, Max was left emotionally and physically scarred. But after Sternwood's son turns up in a hospital due to a failed heist, he’s forced to return to London – giving Max his second chance to get the one criminal who got away. Yet as Max delves deeper into the case he uncovers a vast conspiracy. Featuring rising star Andrea Riseborough ("W.E.," "Shadow Dancer") and Peter Mullan ("Tyrannosaur," "War Horse"), the film was shot in the gleaming streets of London's rejuvenated East End and the banking center of Canary Wharf.

MOVIE REVIEW

You may not have heard of Welcome to the Punch, but it's on Blu-ray this week anyway. The James McAvoy-starring thriller is about a police detective who gets one last chance to capture the elusive criminal (Mark Strong) who permanently injured him years before. He then discovers a much greater conspiracy in the process. I discovered something, too: every character is a terrible shot.
