I love Michael Caine. Not only is he one of the most gifted actors probably to ever grace the silver screen, he has this great likability about him. His latest film kind of portrays him in a different light. In Harry Brown, Caine portrays an ex-servicemen who becomes a vigilante, hunting down a murderer, after the killer murdered his friend. Take a look at the trailer:
I find it brilliant that Michael Caine is branching out and tackling roles such as this even at his age. Many actors kind of just go into coast once they hit their 60s, but not Sir Michael Caine. He has done some of his more daring work in the past decade, thanks to his collaborations with Chris Nolan and his roles in films like Children of Men and Is Anybody There?. I'm real excited to see what Caine does here with a role like this. It's definitely a departure from what we're used to seeing him in. Not to mention the film looks to be very well made and highly entertaining. This is one to look out for.
