Plot Summary

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 cyborg in The Terminator (1984), or Walker in Point Blank (1967), and he and the other characters in this movie are prone to sudden, brutal acts of violence. Written by Mark Thompson

Quotes Cliff Brumby: [blocking Carter's path] Listen, I don't like it when some tough nut comes pushin' his way in and out of my house in the middle of the night! Bloody well tell me who sent you!
Jack Carter: You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself.
[Brumby takes a swing at Carter, who grabs his hand, punches him, and then slaps him in the face for good measure]
Jack Carter: [as he's leaving] Goodnight, Mrs. Brumby.
