BLITZ is a crime drama set in South London in which a serial killer, who refers to himself as 'Blitz', preys on police officers.


There are a number of scenes of strong bloody violence. The killer attacks a police officer in his flat, delivering repeated hammer blows to the man's head. In another scene, the murderer kills a man who has come to the aid of a female police officer. This man is killed when the murderer stamps on his face as he lies defenceless on the pavement and the scene is repeated later in the film when the woman recalls the killing. There is also a scene in which a police officer uses a crowbar to disarm the killer, repeatedly striking the man on the face, arms and body. This leaves the man's face bruised and swollen before he is finally shot in the head. We see blood and brain matter on the ground behind the killer's corpse.


There are numerous uses of very strong language ('c**t').

Other issues contains strong sex references, strong language, sexualised female nudity (when a man runs through a brothel), and drug references and misuse. The film also contains sight of what is purported to be human excrement in a jar of liquid, which is owned by the disturbed killer. There are occasional homophobic remarks, some of which are made by one of the male police officers. However, the comments are not endorsed by the film as a whole and the homophobic character comes to respect a senior gay male officer who helps him in his search for the killer.
