'Welcome to the Punch' is mostly about Max Lewinsky who looks after the criminal called Jacob Sternwood over years and never close to have him. But suddenly a guy who is believed to be Jacob's son (Ruan Sternwood), was found shot at airplane and had been taken to a hospital. Max and police department exploited this situation to make him a decoy to arrest Jacob. Cop chasing criminal is not kind of movie that easily make these days. In 1990's, there a bunch storyline in action movies about this which makes most people sick of this genre unless they could make it more interesting and creating something that doesn't have in other movies. Unfortunately, 'Welcome to the Punch' doesn't offer something like that. This movie just make the same formula that had already existed in those kind of movie.
The storyline is quite interesting at the beginning but it's mostly dull and predictable, the script is also so cheap though. 'Welcome to the Punch' is so serious without any humor that would make audience feels exhausted and bored watching it. James McAvoy's acting as main role is not bad but his character shows no improvement, Max is so obsessed to catch Jacob who had let him alive at early scene, I think Max should be grateful to Jacob for not killing even he surely could do that. Overall, 'Welcome to the Punch' is not original and Eran Creevy as director had no creativity to take any risks making something different that makes this movie easily passable.
