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.

In the first shot in the long bar, the second local man to stare at Jack Carter actually has five fingers and a thumb. This was a genuine abnormality of the 'extra' who played the part. It can be seen as he raises his glass of beer to drink. See more »

I just saw this movie and have to say I enjoyed it. Get Carter details Jack Carter, played by Michael Caine, who goes to his brother's funeral and begins to suspect that his death was not an accident. I thought the acting, particularly on the part of Caine, was excellent. I also enjoyed the music and cinematography. If you're a fan of british gangster films and/or enjoy Michael Caine films, I recommend Get Carter.
