A vicious London gangster, Jack Carter, travels to Newcastle for his brother's funeral. He begins to suspect that his brother's death was not an accident and sets out to follow a complex trail of lies, deceit, cover-ups and backhanders through Newcastle's underworld, leading, he hopes, to the man who ordered his brother killed. Because of his ruthlessness Carter exhibits all the unstopability of the android in Terminator, or Walker in Point Blank, and he and the other characters in the film are prone to sudden, brutal acts of violence.

After finally getting to see the 1971 version I think two things I know why people hated on the remake with Stallone & dang for this time period I bet this movie was flagged for some of the content. This movie is plain and simple just perfect in the revenge noir. It starts a tad slow but it is building up character backgrounds a little but is well worth it. This flick has fooled from start to finish even though you think your on track. Caine is great as a gangster with no regrets for what he is or what he's done ever.There's just one rule don't mess with a man's family especially a bad man. He doesn't take kindly to the misfortunes of his brother who has lived a good & truthfull life,or you will have to pay the price.
