Ultimately, though I appreciate the style behind "Get Carter," I find it empty and a pessimistic view of an anti-hero's journey. Michael Caine plays his brutal Jack Carter with commitment and resolve and the film bluntly unfolds its plot with surehanded brevity. The result is a tale that is nihilistic at best. As Carter's character remains mostly resolute and emotionless throughout his vengeful mission, so the film's plot and themes remain emotionless. What results is a visually striking thriller, but one that doesn't leave the viewer with anything thematically beneficial.

Probably the greatest British gangster film of all time. If low life is your thing, this film has the lot.

A dark and brooding revenge thriller that shows the criminal underbelly of England. A dark film with a very effective story, with a great performance by Michael Caine who excels brilliantly in the role of Jack Carter. The revenge is not pretty, but fascinating in its brutality. The film never takes any easy steps in finding and developing the plot, or with Carter who is likable in a way due to Caine but never does it chicken out with the brutality of the character who most certainly is a thug. Overall the film is incredibly strong and leaves a memorable impressive.
