Harry Brown 
Every Man has a Breaking Point
2.5/4 stars

Its difficult to see where Harry Brown is going, is it a geriatric “Death Wish”, a British version of “Gran Torino” or just a parable of a broken Britain reflected in the UK media.
Sir Michael Caine is as compelling as he always is, playing an ex marine who may have one foot in the grave but is as tough as an old boot, unfortunately, a script bordering on sensationalism, cartoon like villains and a rather questionable moral stance all help to negate a cracking performance.
Harry Brown attempts to be hard hitting, gritty and brutal but as a political overview of a crime-ridden underbelly of British society, it is so over the top that it makes an episode of “The A Team” look like well-constructed realism.
Entertaining to a point but take Caine out of the mix and a mediocre revenge thriller is all you are left with
