    I think I need a drink after watching Harry Brown! An unrelenting, soul punishing picture. As brutal and disgusting as it is, Michael Caine's titular character's arc is majestic. A great support cast, too. The grittiness is captured in such a way that doesn't glamorise the story, simply helping the story play out. Whilst it's a hard film to enjoy, it's a genuinely rewarding one.

    Digital blood always bums me out, but this is some violent, intense, gruesome shit. If a critic calls your movie "morally and politically repugnant," there's a good chance I'm all for it.

    Starts off well, taking its time to establish the main character and his situation. Unfortunately it all goes downhill in the second half due to numerous plot holes and a cheap reveal.

    The British answer to "Death Wish" and "Gran Torino" about retired Royal Marine Harry Brown (Michael Caine) who is tired of watching the decline of his housing area at the hands of criminal gangs (to say that the estate has gone to seed would be like saying that Flint, Michigan is in need of minor urban renewal). After one of his friends is murdered by the gang, Brown decides to take vengeance upon them, hunting down the youths responsible, as…

    An army veteran sets out to solve the crime problem in his home area himself.
    Sounds like Gran Torino?
    Well... it isn't.

    Although the cast does a great job and the script - while far from the the ingenious Gran Torino - is not bad per se... the movie just does not manage to surpass an average rating.
    I have to blame directing and cut. There is just no flow, some scenes feel rushed, others just miss vital points or…

    Cool, slow burning revenge drama starring the great Michael Caine. He's an elderly former Royal Marine who sets out for revenge against a gang of heroin addicts/gang bangers who killed his friend and are terrorizing his neighborhood. Think "Death Wish" with a British accent.
