A vicious London gangster, Jack Carter, travels to Newcastle for his brother’s funeral. He begins to suspect that his brother’s death was not an accident and sets out to follow a complex trail of lies, deceit, cover-ups and backhanders through Newcastle’s underworld, leading, he hopes, to the man who ordered his brother killed. Because of his ruthlessness Carter exhibits all the unstopability of the android in Terminator, or Walker in Point Blank, and he and the other characters in the film are prone to sudden, brutal acts of violence.

Film Review

This is scarily realistic; no glamourization whatsoever of gangsters or violence or even of sex. Michael Caine's best role and best acting ever. Jack Carter keeps it all inside.

Along the way, he crosses paths with the love of his life, some of the local big time villains and his young niece who is stuck in the pornographic film industry.In the time when he was at the height of his leading man success, Michael Caine raised his profile with this grittier leading man role.

The working class northern backdrop is suitably grim and depressing looking and sets the mood just right for the story at hand. It's quite an old film now, but it's lost none of it's heavy tone and it feels just as unflinching now as it was back t…
