The Love Punch - review

The Love Punch is the latest in an ever-growing series of films that are targeting the "Silver Screen" crowd. Over 50's who appreciate the work of, among others, the triumvirate of Dames Dench, Mirren and Smith.

Thompson is not as old as them but is laying the groundwork here in a film that continues Pierce Brosnan's impressive streak of only appearing in movies that offer him a free sunny holiday and like Le Weekend featuring people proving that there's life in the old dog yet.

Only problem is that this film is a complete dog's dinner.

Playing out like an Ocean's Twelve Minutes Past Bedtime it features Brosnan, Thompson, Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie more concerned with getting punch drunk in the sunshine than delivering a decent, enjoyable caper flick.

The tagline is "You can't pinch a diamond without stealing a few hearts" but you can still call a spade a spade cause there is no ace in the pack and this joins the club of 2014's 1 star movies.

Safe to say I'd rather be Donkey Punched than watch The Love Punch
