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.

Am I missing something with Get Carter? Widely acclaimed as one of the preeminent British gangster films, if not films in general, but I just couldn’t embrace it. For all its grit, grime, and fetishistic sexuality, there’s a sleaziness and pronounced periods of lag.   Granted, having Michael Caine in the lead role goes a long way towards papering over these issues as he remains dynamic whe... read more

(OK) Good debut, Hodges! Caine is as cold and cool as it is needed for the straight premise: agangster comes back to town (interesting Newcastle) to revenge his innocent brother's death. "I'm the villain in the family" he says to the local hoodlums who, besides killing his bro, makes his niece an asolescent whore. The mammy is drowned in a car, while Michael stands mute...
View all Get Carter reviews
Michael Caine stars as Jack Carter, a tough, ruthless London mob enforcer. His only sentiment is for his timid brother, Frank, who works as a bartender in Newcastle and makes a point of staying out of trouble. When his brother dies in an accident, Carter goes to the funeral hoping to make amends for past mistakes by reconnecting with what’s left of his family. But after learning that his brother was murdered, Jack single-mindedly metes out his own brutal brand of justice. The closer Jack gets to achieving his goal, though, the more he questions his actions.

" Director: Mike Hodges His 1st movie My 1st movie watched from the director This is one of those late 60s/early 70s British movies that have a certain grit and style nonsensicalness to them that I just love. It's not a great movie but it's so fun to watch. Michael Caine is excellent in it, one of my favorite performances of his.

"11.8. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Viiden tähden projektissa yllätystapaus, jossa itse elokuva oli varmaan yhtä kova juttu, kuin ekallakin kerralla, mutta arviointikriteerit ovat vähän muuttuneet 11 vuodessa. Michael Caine on perkeleellisen viilee ja tyly, kuten koko elokuvakin. Yleinen kyynisyys ja rujous ilahduttaa kovasti. Rikollinen kostoretkellä ei auheuta samanlaisia kiusallisia etiikkakysymyksiä, kuin arkkitehdin tai poliisin hommailut. Kuvauskin on erittäin tyylikästä ja tukee eri"

Get Carter

“Am I missing something with Get Carter? Widely acclaimed as one of the preeminent British gangster films, if not films in general, but I just couldn’t embrace it. For all its grit, grime, and fetishistic sexuality, there’s a sleaziness and pronounced periods of lag.   Granted, having Michael Caine in the lead role goes a long way towards papering over these issues as he remains dynamic when playing brutes and unlikable men. It makes his modern-day transition to kindly grandfatherly/wise mentor roles something of a surprise when taken in the context of his larger body of work. His vicious gangster indulges in a perverted sense of honor while going on a bloody revenge quest over the murder of his brother.   That’s the basic outline of the story.
