Greg's Review of Harry Brown
Dark in tone and realistic situations this film is saved by Michael Caine's performance.Well made yet sparse and ponderous. However it is sad, violent, and filled with no-hopers. There is nothing unique in this film and it is very predictable. My sister & I took our folks to this as it had Caine in it. I liked it better than them by far. One critic pointed out a positive; the movie is largely about knife/gun wielding youth gangs who will do most anything for their next rock or fix and does show the powerlessness of the majority (including police) to remedy the situation.
