Overrated, but brutal and hard-hitting

"You know, I'd almost forgotten what your eyes looked like. Still the same. Pissholes in the snow."

Get Carter is a classic 1970s British crime film that is good, but far from great.

Having seen the remake of the film first I had high expectations for this one. Unfortunately my expectations weren't entirely met, and I was mildly disappointed.

"Outstanding British gangster film with Michael Caine at his nastiest as Jack Carter, a man who comes to Newcastle to find out the truth about his brother's death. A mix of brutal violence and 70's sexism, it's a tough ride as Caine has to face gangs from Newcastle as well as the wrath of his colleagues in London. With Roy Budd's memorable theme tune, this is one of Caine's finest hours, making an unlikeable character watchable."

"First viewing - Feb. 2nd I knew nothing about Get Carter beyond that it's a Michael Caine film & was remade with Stallone later on. I've never had any interest in the remake, and after watching this I won't need to bother with it. Not that this movie is bad really, but I had issues with it. The misogyny of it really bugged me at times, and I was so into the film that I fell asleep for part of it & didn't bother to back it up when I woke up again. Caine does a good job in his role, and evidently"
