Synopsis

A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown (Michael Caine) 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 Charlie Creed-Miles.

  • 4 stars "a very real hard hitting film about inner city london. caine was great"
  • 2 stars "expected a bit more from this movie. Cane is good, but I think the acting by all the young kids was so bad, I found it a bit distracting."
  • 2 stars "I expected a lot more - a tad boring and predictable."
