The concept is two parts Gran Torino to one part Daily Mail: The Movie, but it looks like good clean fun.
Looking forward to it too. I might have been a complete pussy growing up on a council estate but this film gives me hope that I can go back as an elderly man and be a total hardass.
people were always trying to steal our pheasants.
It looks so brilliantly terrible, that I'm quite looking forward to it. I do love a good revenge picture.
I'm complaining to the relevant authorities.
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE MAD
But why the shit music? Just ruins the trailer.
They're not listening to Campag Velocet or Strauss, generally.
Caine's performance was top notch in the first half, before turning a bit hammy. Most of the other characters were just really hollow. Emily Mortimer as copper? Nah. Sean Harris was terrifying, but hardly in the film.
The 'broken Britain' shit was too much though. Kids don't care about anything, apparently.
It's also the first film I've been in for years where someone has walked out. An elderly couple gave it about half an hour, before being much too offended by the language, probably. There was some first class swearing as well, and I'm always a fan of that...
Michael Caine was great for most of it and it was entertaining enough, but overall not good. It was super predictable and very cartoony. The bad guys were ridiculously evil. I couldn't believe people coming out of the cinema saying 'the scary thing is that's what it must be like'. No ways!
