Harry Brown is one fine piece of filmmaking. The title role, of Harry Brown, is done amazingly well by the one and only, Michael Caine, who is unfortunately residing in a run down council estate full of teenagers and gang members who happen to mess with the wrong man!
The story follows Harry Brown's quest for revenge after some of the youths from the estate kill his best friend and find the people who are responsible, while dealing with the loss of his wife as well. Although the story does seem a little far fetched, once watching you will see that the film is made in a realistic way and highlights a lot of problems that are plaguing London and other areas of the UK right now.
This is one of the best British films of recent times, and one of the most realistic too, making it a must watch. If your not planning on watching it for the story or the subject, just watch it for Michael Caine's performance, as it has to be one of the best of his amazing career.
