Rated R · 103 min. · 2010

Michael Caine shines as a downtrodden senior widower, effectively imprisoned in his South London council estate by a drug-dealing youth gang, who rises up angry and does a Charles Bronson/Death Wish number on the thugs. Why pay attention at all to this overworked scenario? Because of Caine’s performance as Harry, and also because of director Daniel Barber’s artful storytelling. In Barber’s hands, the perfunctory screenplay by Gary Young comes alive in harsh gray tones, with the requisite dram – on second thought, make that an imperial pint – of briskly dealt violence. Somehow Caine gets into Harry’s shoes and makes us believe in him. Also with Emily Mortimer, Charlie Creed-Miles, and Liam Cunningham (103 min.).
