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.
