Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

Harry Brown Trailer

Is MICHEAL CAINE pulling a Charles Bronson?

harry-brown-michael-caine-eThis is one of those trailers that practically came out of nowhere. After watching it I can’t wait to see the film simply because I have always loved the revenge genre and this one stars acting legend Michael Caine. With Clint Eastwood and Liam Neeson kicking ass at the box-office in Gran Torino and Taken this past year it’s kind of cool to see another of the silver screen’s most respected actors taking on this genre, especially at 76!

Other films in this genre that I enjoy – Charles Bronson’s Death Wish series, especially the 1974 original and the 1985 wildly over the Exterminator_ver1top but very entertaining third entry, Death Wish 3. The Exterminator from 1980 is strictly B-movie fare and I haven’t seen it in quite some time but it worked in its time. It starred an actor named Robert Ginty. There was also a sequel. I’m also a fan of a 1982 movie called Fighting Back that starred Tom Skerritt. It’s actually a pretty good movie but not available on DVD. Kevin Bacon’s Death Sentence (2007) works well for its first half but goes off the rails big time in its ridiculous second half.

The CBS Television series The Equalizer which ran from 1985 to 1989, starring the late Edward Woodward, was a terrific piece of television that is must see TV. That property has been optioned as a big screen motion picture.

Take a LOOK at the trailer to Harry Brown.
