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.

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.

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.

"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"
