HARRY BROWN (2009 U.K.) D: DANIEL BARBER W: GARY YOUNG P: KEITH BELL/MATTHEW VAUGHN/KRIS THYKIER/MATTHEW BROWN
Widowed pensioner and ex-Marine Michael Caine takes the law into his own hands after the hoodie scum on his estate kill his best friend David Bradley. The nightmarish crime-ridden landscape is not as cartoonish as that other eldelry vs. street thugs classic DEATH WISH III, but a pretty reactionary vision none-the-less. As knee-jerk vigilante fantasies go, this is quite enoyable, and nicely grim. With Emily Mortimer, Charlie Creed-Miles and Iain Glen as cops, Ben Drew and Liam Cunningham.
