  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Avec deux séquences introductives tonitruantes et musclées, ce premier long métrage anglais séduit fortement par son atmosphère à la fois réaliste et pondérée et l'excellente présence et composition de Michael Caine qui font oublier certaines caricatures outrancières dans la description des méchantes crapules en cause... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Tudor Rachieru's rating of the film Harry Brown

  3. MatTtTtTtT's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Inconsistently grim and bleak surrounded by not a lot else, the scene with Brown interacting with Gilgun and Harris' characters was brilliant however, and solid performances elevate a film I didn't take very much from.

  4. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Harry Brown

    This came out the same year as Gran Turino and is an inferior film on every level. Michael Caine puts in a good performance but I always squirm when I see gangsters portrayed in British film. This descends in to a daily mail baiting brexit supporting revenge thriller.

  5. James Mackin's rating of the film Harry Brown

    An old man nearing the end of his life decides to become a vigilante. It works worse than you expect it would. Decent cast though.

  6. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film Harry Brown

  7. Laetitia's rating of the film Harry Brown

    I simply love Sir Michael Caine.

  8. Asokan's rating of the film Harry Brown

    For all intents and purposes, a dark, rough British geezer version of Death Wish with Michael Caine at his most badass since the glory days of Get Carter. It's competently shot and directed with a couple of strong, seasoned actors going up against some demented youths. Doesn't stick much in the memory, but is a servicable crime drama with a tense, involving first half giving way to a cycle of violence. Solid watch.

  9. Benjamin Dogan's rating of the film Harry Brown

    [Spoilers] One thing that people need to understand about movies is that they rarely are a glorification of anything, but merely tell stories. No matter who is illustrated in any way and to what success, it's always up to the viewer to understand and draw a lesson from it. This movie is built upon moral and ethical conflicts, and arguably, the seemingly happy ending is not to be taken as one.

  10. ac's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Self-justice is not the solution, it is part of the problem. Those who wanted to understand have understood by now. One star anyway because the movie is well made.

  11. bastos's rating of the film Harry Brown

    I can not accept the gloryfication of self justice.besides this a quality movie

  12. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Questionable. The scene when Harry buys the guns is very intense, though.

  13. kopfkompass's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Exaggerated, bloodthirsty gun orgy too much in love with its own no-mercy-ness.

  14. yvg's rating of the film Harry Brown

  15. Thomas's rating of the film Harry Brown

    A little ham-handed in its direction, this urban tale of disenfranchised youth credibly and vividly depicts a bleak landscape of social and generational collapse.

  16. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Trim the CSI-investigator scenes and you would get a half-decent story with good ol Michael Caine.

  17. gzegosch's rating of the film Harry Brown

    A really great movie about urban violence; great actors and great camera work. It builds up tension all along and music perfectly fits.

  18. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Harry Brown

    With a startling found-footage opener & a calm "old man morning routine", this vigilante thriller is supported by the veteran shoulders of Caine. Even when it drifts away to police procedural & light social commentary, this British answer to Gran Torino can always rely on Cain's understated performance that helps smooth over the flaws of the film.

  19. sennhauser's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Nicht gerade subtiles Death Wish-Update via Gran Torino. Aber vor allem dank Michael Caine letztlich eindrücklicher als er sein sollte.

  20. Albrecht B. Christoph's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Wirklich sehr bedrückend. Leider sind wohl nur die positiven Seiten fern der Realität.

  21. RadiantFlux's rating of the film Harry Brown

    This is similar, but far superior to Gran Torino. Michael Caine as always is superb. Great cinematography.

  22. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Harry Brown

    Saw the movie again and found it better than the first time. Maybe the story isn't quite satisfactory, but there are many details which make the movie worth seeing, especially the stunning capturing of the social surroundings, the excellent camera work, the cautious use of music and of course the fine acting of Michael Caine and David Bradley.

  23. Jack Butler's rating of the film Harry Brown

    A ham-fisted and sensationalist screenplay that watches like a Daily Mail fever dream. Michael Caine's good in it, though.

  24. Jeremy Gaunt's rating of the film Harry Brown

    I liked this a lot but it was primarily because of Michael Caine. He is so good. For some reason the message that some people see in it -- that vigilantism is ok -- escaped me. No more problematic to me than The Unforgiven.
