Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Saw this and thought of Arrse.


    Set in modern-day Britain, HARRY BROWN follows one mans (Sir Michael Caine) journey through a chaotic world where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets.

    A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone on a depressed housing estate. His only company is his best friend Leonard (David Bradley). When Leonard is murdered by a gang of thugs, Harry feels compelled to act and is forced to dispense his own brand of justice. As he bids to clean up the run-down estate where he lives, his actions bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Charlie Creed-Miles.

    Looks like a good film.

    Hope nobody gets any ideas from it.

    Like disgruntled ex-squaddies petrol bombing our little 'Gangsta' friends from passing cars or something.

    That would be awful.

    ( :D )

  3. About time he chose the kind of role he was made for again.
    Welcome back Sir Michael.

    Justice happens every day.
    You just don't get to read about it.
    If you do you, just think it's something else.
  4. Looks awesome hopefully it won't turn out to be a bag of shite like Outlaw
  5. Looks a bit like a Brit version of Death Wish 3 8O

    Mind you I'll probably still be buying a ticket

    Apparently a few people are making close comparisons with Clint Eastwood's film 'Gran Turino' (I havn't seen Gran Turino yet).

    As for the quality of the film, the fact that Michael Caine is in it could be an indication of its quality.
    I echo the_butlers sentiments in that this looks like the type of film that Sir Michael was made for.

    I reckon some interesting threads will appear on this forum when 'Harry Brown' is released.
  7. Will keep my eye out for it.
