Harry Brown

Sir Michael Caine-need I say more!

Well, I guess to count this as a review I do. Michael Caine plays the title character in this British film.  Harry Brown is a widowed pensioner living in a high-rise in London. His neighborhood is under assault by a gang of ruthless and violent youths. When his best friend is murdered, Brown decides to take justice into his own hands.

It would be easy to compare this film to Death Wish or the more recent Gran Torino. However,  Harry Brown is grittier and more frighteningly realistic than either of those. Michael Caine is quiet, unassuming and heroic. I don’t think Harry Brown has gotten a very wide release, so see it while you can.
