Synopsis Like smokestack soot, revenge colors HARRY BROWN, the smartly done socio-economic killer thriller that has Michael Caine at 77 armed and dangerous...3 stars out of 4 -- Michael Caine as the title character is no pale imitation of other iconic law-abiding men. He's quietly mad as hell and raises the level of the film with his grave intelligence and contained ferocity.3 stars out of 4 -- HARRY BROWN is a revenge thriller poised somewhere between DEATH WISH and GRAN TORINO....Caine is a subtle actor who builds characters from the inside out.4 stars out of 5 -- An old-fashioned vigilante revenge drama burnished with art film sensibilities and a classicist's attention to detail, HARRY BROWN is a triumph of both technique and substance.[I]t features an Expressionistic palette and steady, even stolid, camerawork and precise framing, which first complement Harry's routinized life and then underscore his resolve.Academy Award nominee Daniel Barber (THE TONTO WOMAN) makes his feature directorial debut with this gritty critique on contemporary British society starring Michael Caine as an elderly shut-in who's spurred to action by a senseless act of violence. Harry Brown (Caine) resides in a desolate public-housing apartment block as his sickly wife lies dying in a local hospital. He spends most of his days in solitude, only getting out to play the occasional game of chess at a nearby pub with his best friend, Leonard (David Bradley). The days of basic human decency seem to be a thing of the past, because in recent years barbarous drug dealers and gangsters have overtaken the dilapidated complex. Killing is a way of life for these young thugs, and as a result overburdened detectives Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Hicock (Charlie Creed-Miles) are essentially relegated to knocking on doors and notifying parents when their children have been killed in the latest fracas, instead of investigating the crimes and jailing the guilty parties. When Leonard is murdered just feet from his own apartment, former Royal Marine Harry utilizes the skills he learned while fighting the IRA to take on the aggressive chavs who have intimidated the police into inaction.
