Harry Brown

Harry Brown starring Michael Caine is another example of a vigilante popularised by the Death Wish series of movies.

Caine plays the titular character Harry Brown, an ex-marine, who stays in an estate in London. The area is notorious for its teen gangs who terrorize women and the elderly people.

One night Harry's best friend and chess playmate Len is killed.

How Harry avenges the death and cleanses the area of its hooligans forms the crux of the movie.

Michael Caine is as elegant and classy as ever and delivers a superb performance.

My rating-***/5.
