Harry brown is a film directed by Daniel Barber, released in 2009. The film is set on a urban, grey, concrete jungle of a housing estate in England, which is being run and savaged by a gang of sadistic hooded thugs, lead by Noel Winters (Ben Drew) or as many would know him, Plan B. Harry Brown (Michael Caine) is a retired marine, living alone, he has lost everything that means anything to him, his daughter and his wife, but when his only friend and companion is killed by the gang, it is the final straw, and Harry decides he has seen enough. Harry decides to take the law into his own hands and clean up the estate. The film also stars David Bradley, Iain Glen and Joseph Gilgun who shot to fame playing the character of Woody in "This is England".
Although this film is a dark and violent affair, it also manages to keep you on the edge of or your seat throughout in suspense. However the film still has a realistic and strange feeling of optimism and hope for the underdog. It leaves you wondering where it's going to go and how it will end with 30 to 45 minutes remaining and incorporates clever twists. The music matches the style of film very well and helps build the imagery and atmosphere of the film.
This is a very good film and anybody that likes this kind of British made film and doesn't mind a bit of violence, will be rewarded by not dismissing it as some kind of violent thug film with no plot. This film is a must see.
