I finally said fuck it, I'll take the law into my own hands, so I broke into the peado's house at four in the morning and I smashed his bollocks with a baseball bat until they fucking popped.

Some nice camera work, stylish blurring, but pretty clichéd police drama. Jason Statham does what Jason Statham normally does, he's utterly typecast as kind of British Dirty Harry, but it's not new anymore like it was in Snatch/The Transporter.
His sidekick is not nearly as interesting as the little guy in Snatch or the girl in Transporter.
Good work from Aiden Gillen (the guy who played Tommy Carcetti in The Wire) as the bad guy. Zawe Ashton is also interesting as a WPC with a drug problem.
Mainly the plot seemed a bit disjointed and contrived. Overall it felt like a TV police drama. Nothing special.
