Set in modern-day Britain, Harry Brown follows one man's (Sir Michael Caine) journey through a chaotic world where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets. A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone on a depressed housing estate. His only company is his best friend Leonard (David Bradley). When Leonard is murdered by a gang of thugs, Harry feels compelled to act and is forced to dispense his own brand of justice. As he bids to clean up the run-down estate where he lives, his actions bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Sergeant Hickock (Charlie Creed-Miles).

This film addresses the very present-day issues that are violent behaviour and injustice in our allegedly civilised nation. Sir Michael Caine plays a retired Royal Marine living in "The Elephant and Castle" district of South London. To some degree Gran Torino will spring to mind as a similar film, but there all similarities will end as the Clint Eastwood film confronts the issue from the perspective of racism, while the realism of Harry Brown cannot but make us aware of our flawed individualistic society.

The casting is wonderful and the thugs that petrify the local community are utterly believable. But from start to finish this is Caine's movie. He plays his part with enormous suffering. We feel genuinely sorry for him as, his wife and, then, his only best mate Leonard Attwoll dies leaving him quietly tormented and then incredibly angry as he learns that his best friend's death was contemptuously filmed on a mobile phone to the complement of inconsiderate laughter.

The brutality of this movie is scorching and really appalling at times. The riot scene is totally believable, which is difficult to achieve on a fairly low budget film but positively hits the right chords. It plays a significant role in undermining the effectiveness of the police and presenting them as the ineffective and uncaring force that director, Daniel Barber was keen to highlight.

On top of this, living in a city of chaos, drugs, juvenile and capital crime, Harry is visited by the police informing him of Leonard Attwoll's murder and that the likelihood of bringing anyone to trial was next to implausible.

Filled with fear, rage and despair Harry finds himself filling his anger with a quest for vengeance, and decides to keep track of the street gangs by posing as a businessman trading in illegal guns.

This story depicts the critical environment in which the unlucky few attempt to survive the anger, the fear and the injustice, which predictably feed the criminal minds creating anarchy and pillaging our human race. This film is not only worthy of an Oscar, but most importantly, worth your attention. If you enjoy high-quality cinema and an idealistic debate, then you will most definitively appreciate this genuine perspective on humanity!

Miichael Caine delivers another Memorable Performance in this Gritty Urban Revenge Thriller.
The film falls in somewhere between Death Wish and the more recent Gran Torino.
Harry Brown and the other 2 movies both deal with vigilantism, and I guess the appeal is watching a bunch of low lives, who having terrified people and escaped punishment through the authorities, getting exactly what they deserve.
Even though this movie was a bit graphic and unsettling in its depiction of violence, I was content to watch it, because the scenarios presented were all pretty real, most of which appear in the News everyday.
Good movie, with a Great Performance

Very brutal, very powerful and very realistic film, deals with a subject im sure everybody has an opinion on! The film is very well directed and the story is paced out very well, its the ultimate revenge movie! As Harry takes the law into his own hands your practically hoping he succeeds in every way! Great performances from the entire cast, a must watch film, British film making at its best!

 Gritty, Brutal & Cool.

Harry Brown (2009) is a dark and violent British drama starring Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer. The plot revolves around an elderly ex-serviceman (Caine) and his battle with the local teenage yobs.

He may be 77-years-old but in this movie Sir Michael Caine once again proves he's one of the best and coolest actors ever. Caine is completely convincing as the tough pensioner cleaning up his neighbourhood and he hasn't been this scary since Get Carter.

First time director Daniel Barber also deserves a lot of credit. The movie is very dark and gritty but Barber has an eye for visuals and building up the tension. There's nice support from Mortimer and the rest of the cast who include a mixture of actors and real life street kids.

The blu-ray looks pretty amazing. The visuals are clear and crisp and there's some nice extras including a great commentary from director Barber and his leading man Caine.

 Dirty Harry in London

| | See all Terminator20006's reviews (5)

Sir Michael Caine is Harry Brown... a former Army man, trying to survive in the jungle. The "punks" that Uncle Clint loved to shoot in Dirty Harry were no angels... but they are choirboys compared to the criminals Harry Brown depicts with such a realism that you're wondering if you're watching a movie or living a nightmare.
Forget all you think you know about London... this side of London, you wish you had never seen it existed until Harry Brown catches speed, rhythm.
Michael Caine gives yet another magnificent performance and his vigilante character has not to blush compared to Dirty Harry.
Where Harry Brown differs from Dirty Harry is in the realism of the scenario, and the complete lack of humor. (with a few exceptions)
That's the only downside... it is really a HEAVY movie and you won't be unmoved.
The Harry Palmer series are cartoons for kindergarten kids compared to Harry Brown, while Dirty Harry though considered violent and brutal back in the days is a drive in the park on a sunny Summer afternoon.
Be prepared for blood, true realism, raw violence, guts splattered on your telly but don't close your eyes anymore...the world depicted in Harry Brown does exist. Gangs of hardened criminals barely 18 is a sad reality and you wish there were more Harry Browns around.
