Do I look like I carry a pencil

Blitz (2011)
Chosen by me as I like to go to the cinema a lot.

A London based Dirty Harry, this is morally dubious entertainment perhaps but too bland to really offend.
Statham and Considine make for an odd pairing but the movie never really makes enough out of that.
Considine is one of the non-offensive film homosexuals who lives on his own and whose sexual life is only referred to derogatorily by others. Interestingly though so is Statham's (by a female officer who unbuttons her shirt more than would seem to be regulation).
It aims for a 'poetic justice' ending but it doesn't really make much sense.
