In England, retired Royal Marine Harry Brown spends his lonely life between the hospital, where his beloved wife Kath is terminally ill, and playing chess with his only friend Leonard Attwell in the Barge pub owned by Sid Rourke. After the death of Kath, Len tells his grieving friend that the local gang is harassing him and he is carrying an old bayonet for self-defense; the widower suggests him to go to the police. When Len is beaten, then stabbed to death in an underground passage, Inspector Alice Frampton and her partner Sergeant Terry Hicock are sent to investigate. They pay Harry a visit but don't have good news; the police have not found any other evidence, other than the bayonet, in order to arrest the hoodlums. This mean that should the case go to trial the gang would claim self-defense. Harry Brown sees that justice will not be granted and decides to take matters into his own hands. Written by

Kenneth (Joe Gilgun) claims the SIG P226R pistol is made from polymer reinforced with fiberglass. This is incorrect as the P226R has a steel frame. However, the Glock 17 he offers for sale does have a polymer frame. See more »

Saw this film last night and wanted to applaud the British film-makers for producing this great film.
It is a film which made me literally jump from my seat with excellent filmotography.I feel this is a film well worth watching and as mentioned in the trailers, it has to be the best British film of the year.
I do not think any more British releases will be able to compete with this film.
Michael Caine's acting is as usual superb and he has once again showed his professionalism in a different way.
