Latest Movie Review
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.
