Harry Brown

by Marv Films


Michael Caine returns to the vengeance-fuelled chills of GET CARTER for this contemporary thriller in which he seeks to avenge the death of an elderly friend.

Marking his feature film directorial debut, Daniel Barber presents a London that’s a million miles away from the picturesque beauty of holiday brochures but instead a hellish city where menace lurks in the shadows of its streets. When his friend is brutally murdered by a group of disaffected youths, ex-serviceman Harry Brown (Caine) takes the law into his hands, vowing to hunt each of the culprits down…


Gary Young’s screenplay skillfully captures the feeling of a society that has spiraled out of control, with the police passive onlookers and serial offenders going about their businesses and perverted forms of amusement without fear of comeuppance. It won’t only be embattled pensioners who cheer as Caine turns masterfully medieval on the sneering sociopaths in our midst. The movie also represents pretty well how many of us now feel about the police. That underused actor Iain Glen is splendidly supercilious as a useless superintendent mouthing platitudes about zero tolerance.

The Daily Mail, Chris Tookey

Truly awesome

GQ magazine

Unmissable… The best British film of the year.


Michael Caine gives the performace of a lifetime as the iconic Harry Brown . Barber’s debut film is a gripping violent thriller that’ll make any Quentin Tarantino film seem like The Magic Roundabout.
