A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown (Michael Caine) is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone in 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In Gran Torino, Eastwood took on the moral issues that screenwriter Gary Young and first-time director Daniel Barber studiously avoid. It's the difference between riveting and repellent.
Fresh: Harry Brown lets Michael Caine show us his action-hero side one more time in a film that Charles Bronson would have been proud to call his own.
Fresh: It's simply the tale of a man who decides to do something and sticks to his guns, so to speak. That the man is played by Michael Caine is what makes it worthwhile.
Fresh: Caine's impeccable performance gives the film unlikely stature. It's impossible to imagine the movie without him.

Harry Brown, this must be one of Michael Cain's very best films.
It is all that Gran Turino is not. It sharply throws the American film industry into the background, leaving the the Brits firmly where we belong, AT THE FOREFRONT
I really liked Gran Turino, but yet again it was very predictable...
