Ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood (Mark Strong) is forced to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway when his son is arrested after suffering a gunshot wound during a heist gone wrong. This gives Sternwood's arch enemy, detective Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy), his last chance to catch the man he's always been after. As the two nemeses hurtle towards each other, they start to uncover a deeper conspiracy that they will both need to solve in order to survive.

From executive producer Ridley Scott Welcome to the Punch is a pulse-pounding, hi-octane ride through the mean streets of London




"A confident, ambitious and action-rich Brit thriller"
"Welcome To The Punch is thrillingly cinematic, beautifully made, smarter and funnier than you'd expect, and a phenomenal showcase for Creevy and his team"
Oliver Lyttleton, INDIEWIRE
"Borrowing heavily from the steel-glass precision of Michael Mann's Heat - from its clinical neon-bathed cinematography to some cliched but effective musical cues - Punch is a pacy obsession thriller that expertly utilises its metropolitan setting while following a tried-and-tested action recipe that evokes the more visceral works of Hong-Kong auteurs Andrew Lau and John Woo."
"This Punch will leave a mark."
Alex Zane, THE SUN
