Harry Brown is a powerful, fresh and gritty British action thriller following one man's (Sir Michael Caine) journey through a chaotic world where drugs are the currency and guns run the streets. Modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown, is forced to dispense his own brand of justice as he bids to clean up the run-down estate he calls home.
Finally somebody stands up to the young thugs who terrorise the neighbourhood. And it's not the police or a macho stud! No, it is a retired ex-marine who takes justice in his own hands! Well done to him! I wish I was so brave! Very good performance from Michael Caine.
An interesting fantasy...

...in which all of both the perpetrators and victims of gun and drug crime in the sink estates of modern Britain are white. I deplore the blatant lack of 'diversity' in this film. But who needs the truth when we can be entertained by the kind of fiction the self flagellating liberal middle class white chatterattzi persist in believing in the face of cold evidence?
Aside from that appalling dishonesty (which does black people a great disservice), the film was half decent.
