It’s been a while since Michael Caine played a badass. He’s been great portraying butlers and hippies over the last few years, but we all know the actor has a dark streak to him.
His upcoming film Harry Brown isn’t a new Death Wish, but it sure sounds like one. In it, Caine (as the titular character) doles out vigilante justice after a gang of local teens brutally kills his best friend.
Set in modern day Britain, HARRY BROWN follows one man’s journey through a chaotic world where teenage violence runs rampant. As a modest, law abiding citizen, Brown lives alone. His only companion is his best friend Leonard. When Leonard is killed, Brown reaches his breaking point. HARRY BROWN is a powerful, character driven thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Michael Caine in a tour-de-force performance.
People are already raving about his performance here. Check out the trailer, and keep an eye out for when the film hits theaters on April 30th.
