The year is 1964. The place is Brighton. A once quiet seaside town is suddenly overrun by gangs of sharp suited Mods and greasy Rockers looking for a riot. Amongst the chaos lurks top Mod and gangster Pinkie Brown. Ruthless, ambitious and horrifically violent, Pinkie will stop at nothing in his brutal quest to make a name for himself within the criminal underworld. But when a cold bloodied killing links him to a waitress named Rose, he uses seduction to secure her silence. Can Rose be saved in time from Pinkie, or will he drag her further into a world of death and damnation?

Based upon the classic novel by Graham Greene, Brighton Rock is a gripping, razor edged thriller. The directorial debut of screenwriter Rowan Joffe (28 Weeks Later), Brighton Rock features two generations of Britain's greatest acting talent including Sam Riley (Control), Andrea Riseborough (Never Let Me Go), Helen Mirren (The Queen) and John Hurt (The Elephant Man).

 IT'S GOT "ADEQUATE" ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT!

This is a updated version of the 1947 Richard Attenburough classic, that was based on Graham Greens 1939 novel. Not wanting to alienate the viewer and again setting it in 1939 the film wisely relocates to 1964 where Mods and Rockers fight it out on the pebbly beach of Brighton. Sam Riley is brilliently nasty as Pinkie as he sets out a private war with the local underworld and kills anyone that gets in his way and keeps him from the gallows, as a simple act of violence spirals out of control. Credit also to Andea Risebourough as the luckless Rose who falls for Pinkie as he is the only person who has ever shown her any effection, no matter what his twisted motives are. Helen Mirren, John Hurt and Andy Surkis add class in their minor roles.
The acting on the whole is good, the plot is great and the time line change should not upset too many fans of the 1947 classic.
But apart from the scenes where the Mods Drive into Brighton on their Lambretta's the whole thing smaks of a TV movie.
This is a shame as this could have been a modern classic, and just like a stick of Rock it has "adequate" written all the way through it.

 Excellent rendering

Brilliant remake and a different spin on the original. All the period props had been well thought out, even down to the hair cream of the period! A good line up of excellent actors to carry it all off.

 Better than the original

There are a lot of really good remakes of classic films out there, most of which I personally prefer the originals. This one for me is an exeption to the rule. I love the original, but much prefer this new version. A truly exceptional remake!

 Loved It :)

I went to watch this movie in the cinema in feb 2011...
I fell in love with Pinkie and thought that he played his role very well. You could really feel what he felt and that there was some good in him...
Rose was really good in the movie also and her love for pinkie made you realise that she sees something in him that no one else has and that even though she knows everything that she has done it don't change anything.
I bought this on DVD to enjoy at home because i love the language i love the place its set in and its actually made me want to go to Brighton.
Maybe you all think i am sad...
I have not seen the original but by the previous comments i think that i will have to buy it on DVD.
I am nearly finished reading the book and it makes you realise just how clever the directors were with this movie they have changed so much and really enjoyed it.
I recommend the book and this movie....
The characters really do catch your attention and bring you into the movie..
i suppose its not everyone's taste and some people will prefer the classic...
im 22 years old and really enjoyed it :)
