Harry Brown

"Aren't you that geezer from the film with the minis?"

Harry Brown is a great little crime-thriller which offers a solution to the problem of the villainous youthful demographic in Britain today, albeit not an entirely morally sound solution. The film is by no means subtle and loudly pontificates from the first minute, which may be difficult to swallow for some viewers. However Michael Caine brings, as he so often does, an engaging and watchable quality that makes the film an enjoyable and memorable first attempt from Daniel Barber.

I thoroughly enjoyed the film and was hooked until the very end, but this was all in spite of the politics. I felt at times that the message was being rammed down my throat, but I got past this with the wonderful set pieces and the unbelievable screen presence of Michael Caine.

By way of drawing this to a close, I would say that this film is a definite must see. It displays a promising first attempt from British Director Daniel Barber, and will keep an audience enthralled throughout.

Harry Brown is screening at macrobert this Friday and Saturday (12th/13th), and tickets are selling fast! Book Now to avoid having to stand outside and listen.

    In the hands of a lesser actor, this would feel just as clichéd as it sounds. But Caine brings his smarts as well as his baggage to the character, making him more than another mad-as-hell guy with a gun. Nice Review!
