    While it's not his last film and he'll quite possibly still continue to make good movies, this is Michael Caine's swan song. In a powerful revenge film, a genre which he elevated over forty years ago with films like Get Carter, he has done it once again.

    He's so incredible in this film. I like comparing this to something with Liam Neeson, who seems to have a new revenge film out every week. This film shows Caine's Harry Brown as…

    I like this British vigilante thriller directed by Daniel Barber and starring Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer, Jack O'Connell, and Liam Cunningham.

    The story is straight forward - Harry Brown, a widowed Royal Marines veteran, who had served in Northern Ireland during The Troubles, living on a London housing estate that is rapidly descending into youth crime decides to fight fire with fire after a friend is murdered.

    I know that everyone compares this to Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino" but it's…

    Great film showing how you shouldn't mess with the OAP. Michael Caine is effectively an older Jack Carter from Get Carter. Excellent

    Set in a dark and gritty environment this is a well acted and directed revenge thriller. The various actors especially deserve credit for making the movie and setting work. Very gloomy, very good and a nice exception to the myriads of mediocre revenge movies out there.

    Don't mess with Harry Brown.

    Bedrückende Geschichte über Perspektivlosigkeit und die Opfer sinnloser Gewalt. Selbstjustiz ist selbstverständlich keine Lösung und dennoch kann man die Wut in Harry Brown nachvollziehen, die ihn treibt seinen Freund zu rächen.

    A classic revenge movie, with very dark and dirty atmosphere, that makes it outstanding. I was afraid to see Michael Caine in an action movie at the age like that, but no doubt, he was perfect choise. I'm a huge fan of revenge movies, I was glad to finish this movie with the feeling I had after Death Sentence, Max Payne and The Crow. The storyline wasn't executed perfectly, but still an awesome movie. Worth watching it.

    It doesn't get much darker - or more satisfying - than Harry Brown, a vigilante thriller about an old man who refuses to let scum rule London's streets any longer.

    As much as I enjoy Michael Caine being up to his old tricks again, mI though this film unnecessarily violent and bleak. Of course, a rundown, criminally infested London Borough full of deranged youths might be today's equivalent of Hell's Kitchen in the sixties or San Francisco in the 70s, but it sure lacks the romanticism of these era's, which - granted - is a product of Hollywood itself, but makes for much better and more wholesome entertainment than this…

    Each time I watch this I came away a little less enamoured.

    Whilst it's a great showcase for my favourite movie star, Michael Caine, in the latter stage of his career ("You've failed to maintain your weapon, son" will go down in history as being as eminently quotable as his lines in Get Carter or The Italian Job) it is also regrettably a tremendous example of cinematic Viagra for Daily Mail readers; depressingly depicting as it does the notion that…

    Michael Caine is on top form as the lead of a solid cast, but none of them can overcome this muddled picture. Any attempt at social relevance to the modern day problem of hoodie culture is suffocated, due to the overstuffed nature of inserting dull action and gritty, cliché moments.

    This 2009 British vigilante film is directed by Daniel Barber and stars Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer, Charlie Creed Miles, David Bradley, Ben Drew and Liam Cunningham.

Living in fear, Harry and his old friend Len Attwell (Bradley) avoid many areas of the suburb, with Len suffering most at…
