Gritty British thriller starring Michael Caine. Harry Brown (Caine) is a widowed ex-serviceman living a quiet, modest life on a London housing estate. When his only friend Leonard (David Bradley) is brutally murdered by a gang of thugs on the estate, Harry becomes intent on avenging his death, and resorts to his own brand of vigilante-style justice in an increasingly lawless neighbourhood that has become overrun with gangs, guns and drugs. However, his attempts to clean up the estate inevitably bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Sergeant Hickock (Charlie Creed-Miles).

Format: DVD
A very, very grim look at a London council estate, full of thuggish hoodies doing drug deals and fighting in the street, Harry brown is downbeat in all aspects. The camera work and lighting are a mix of shakey hand held, and monotone colours.

Michael Caine gives a pitch perfect performance as a quiet pensioner living among this hellish estate, watching from the windows of his flat the chaos around him. His quiet existence is shattered when his freind is beaten to death by the young thugs. Not long after he is confronted by one young scumbag and uses his old military skills to defend himself. From this point on it really is a case of Caine getting a gun and exacting revenge on the gang, eventually leading to a tension filled conclusion where few survive.

Whilst the subject matter is very grim, the film is so well constructed in story, characterisation, performances and direction, that it is an enjoyable movie experience. Be warned though this is full of very graphic violence, and bad language. Most people draw a comparison to this and Death wish, but it is actually closer in terms of look, feel and story of the Sean Bean thriller Outlaw.

Format: DVD
This is British cinema at its best. Michael Caine plays Harry Brown; a widowed ex-marine, who lives alone on one of South London's sink estates and keeps himself to himself. One day his one and only friend is murdered by the feral youths who run the estate and something in Harry snaps. He says early on that his military life was locked away and forgotten when he met his late wife and now it comes back with a vengeance as he seeks justice in his own way. Caine is outstanding as Harry Brown and portrays perfectly the hopelessness and loneliness of so many old people in this country today. No punches are pulled in displaying the futility of life on this estates either. Having worked in places like this it was very familiar and discomforting. When you watch this film in the comfort of your comfy living room remember that thousands of people live like this. This film doesn't glamourise violence and gun play in the way of so many American films but shows the desperate lengths that the hero goes to for justice when the police can't or won't get it for him. When Harry Brown gets a gun its because he sees the enemy has them, not because its a natural thing for him to do. If Caine doesn't get at least an Oscar nomination for this then there ain't no justice there either.

Michael Caine is his usual best in this gritty expose of modern life in the inner suburbs of our cities. He plays the lonely recent windower and ex Commando with a fine degree of finess. Indeed this film is typical of many cities today showng the urban decay and of the hostle youth that is symptomatic of much of our life today.Where drug dealing is rampant and respect for each other simply doesn't exist. Unfortunately this is repeated over and over again.

Mr Brown is alone save for his one friend who unfortunately loses his life out of fear and frustrations for his own.Indeed Mr Brown's own anxieties and frustrations finally boil over into the chilling encounter with the two drug dealers and the final inevitable showdown in the underpass culmination in the hotel shoot out.Somewhat reminiscent of those eighties films starring Charles Bronson - 'Death Wish'.

Whilst it is somewhat simplistic in its message, good vs evil and social engineers will undoubtedly give it a thumbs down surely this is how life really is? Society has over succeeding generations contorted it self in excusing these mindless acts of violence and blaming every other reason rather than individuals takng responsibiity for their own actions.

The film does have some dark overtones but overall it is a very gritty but true depicton of city life today.

What was most tellng for me were the scenes of those appallng bleak concrete council estates where people eek out an exstance.Is this the best that society can offer?

What a damming enditement of town planning.

All in all a very enjoyable film. Caine in one of his best.

I really liked this film. As the previous reviewer so succinctly puts it, it does give a very realistic view of life on an east London estate and it is, to say the least, grim. I thought the camera work was very clever in that it, too, is grim and dark and dimly lit and adds to the feeling of desolation and poverty.

Caine is fantastic as the central character and gives an almost understated performance. He is a pitiful, sad and lonely old man who resorts to extremes because he cannot cope with his life and his personal losses.

There are some extremely violent and awful scenes in the movie but they are, in my opinion, totally realistic and utterly necessary. The violence (both verbal and physical) is not gratuitous as is the case in many American counter-parts (and I don't mean Gran Torino because I really like that movie too).

A really good film in my opinion.

‘One day a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the streets’. Remember that line (or at least something close)? Well here’s our own rain, pouring down in the form of ‘Arry Brown, AKA Michael Caine, and it’s here to wash the scum off our own streets. These particular scum are arrogant, nasty hoodies who lurk in an underpass close to Harry’s block of flats and from there he can watch the sordid goings on at the entrance of the underpass.

There’s a short opener which is both horrific and cathartic in equal doses. This sets up the film and appears as a précis of the complete story: bad guys get their comeuppance, but ultimately that notion isn’t as strong as the film’s commentary on the state of this country and the morality of Harry’s actions which constitute its heart. Ihe first part of the film we get to know Harry pretty well and this belies what is to come and, or at least as much as we need to. His life is pretty grim, having recently lost his wife and it becomes grimmer when he then loses his only mate to the scum in the underpass. From here things take a darker turn and the film spirals out of control like the events which it depicts.
Harry is well portrayed by the aging Caine who demonstrates his ability not only as an actor but as a bit of an action hero too. Conveniently Harry was once in the marines, which sets him up with a few skills that would be beyond any ordinary pensioner (thankfully we are spared any martial arts moves although that might haved upped the entertainment value). And so the killing spree starts.
