Harry Brown Blu-Ray Review

Harry Brown Blu-Ray Review




Synopsis: Set in modern day Britain, Harry Brown follow's one man's 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 Charlie Creed-Miles.


Review: When I heard that Michael Caine was in a vigilante movie I honestly almost laughed.  I mean, he's an old man, right?  Then I remembered recent films like Gran Torino.   Caine loses his ill wife and his best pal.  He's vulnerable and elderly and all alone in the world.  He obtains a gun from a lowlife criminal and proceeds with a vigilante-style murdering spree! 

Harry Brown is suprisingly dark, violent and utterly brilliant!   I cannot recommend this title enough.  Its a fantastic look at a far overlooked and abused part of the population.  Caine is fantastic as ever and this adds a great new dimension to his acting resume!

The special features of the blu-ray are Filmmaker and Cast Commentary, movieIQ(r)+sync and BD-Live connect you to real-time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie! and Deleted Scenes
