    Brutal vengeance tale with heart set in the distopian present. This really shows why vengeance is not a young person's game; it requires patience and maturity.

    Michael Caine är Harry Brown, en grånad f.d. marinsoldat som för att hämnas sin mördade vän städar upp bland Londonförortens ungdomsgäng och kriminella patrask. Filmen anses tillhöra den brittiska hoodie horror-genren som kapitaliserar på medelklassens kollektiva skräck för meningslöst gatuvåld, vars verklighetsförankring fick ytterligare en dimension i och med upploppen “London Riots” 2011. Välgjort, välspelat och träffsäkert realistiskt.

    This one is surprisingly violent and full of tension. Michael Caine, who hasn't had a lead role in years, shines brightly in this dark tale that never loses touch with reality although does meander and at times is unfocused. There are very few characters worth caring about since most are lowlife scum but Caine holds everything together and you're rooting for him throughout. JV

    A brilliant story, that involves vigilantism, with an emotional aspect; this film is brilliant. Michael Caine is amazing, as always. Emily Mortimer as Inspector Alice shines as well. Also, the Game of Thrones' regulars
    (and my favourite actos as well) such as Liam Cunningham, David Bradley and Iain Glen are in this film (making it a treat for me).

    A must watch.

    Charles Bronson set the bar high for vigilante movies in the series of films that began in 1974 with “Death Wish.” More recently, the Batman series (esp. “The Dark Knight”) has raised it. Unfortunately, Harry Brown is a step backwards. Despite fine acting by an aging Michael Caine, this is just a senseless violence fest. There is a little twist at the end, but otherwise it does not break new ground nor does it possess any redeeming social value. It is also a slow starter, which will turn many viewers off. I had expected much more.

    What a pile of self-important wank. Just because you shoot your film in the most boring shots possible and make your credit font as small as possible doesn't mean your film is good serious drama. Laughable. As in I laughed out loud several times. The music was good though.

    'arry Brown in the hands of any other actor would be nothing more than as cliched as it sounds.

    Michael Caine's impeccable performance however gives Harry Brown a sense of character that it actually doesn't deserve. It is Caine alone that gives the title character the depth that is needed for a revenge movie to work. In fact, Caine is magnificent, and the film hangs off his brilliant performance. This inspired piece of casting makes Harry Brown a gritty and stylish movie.

    They might as well have just called it Michael Caine.
