welcome to the punch 11welcome to the punch 083 years ago, detective Max was shot and injured by a robber, Jacob Sternwood. Total of 4 robbers were escaped.

 And now, Sternwood returned as a father with deep parental love, batten down the hatches to rescue his son who is in a heist.

welcome to the punch 10The chasing begins on this line.  Max was given another chance to take down the man who cost him everything in his life besides his wound.  Hatred and dignity were behind the call for pay back.  The conflicts flashed through the cityscapes and streets of London.

welcome to the punch 12Slit cut mood gives credit to this action packed movie.  The thundering sound effects and the exchange of gunshot almost make me fell off my chair.  Whether it’s the lighting effects or the costume make-up, this motion picture is not for the fans of ‘Superman’ or ‘Fast & Furious’.  While a hero reigns the show, it is definitely worth the while to get your tickets.  Be charmed by the fearless eyes of Mark Strong and get submerge into the whole action with your popcorns!
