Plot Summary: When a crew of drug-dealing gang members takes the life of his only friend, a retired Marine and widower decides to take the law into his own hands — but his old-school training might be overmatched.
Director: Daniel Barber
Serious Jest: (Worth Watching) We’ve seen this type of old-Vet-comes-out-of-retirement-to-teach-these-young-ruffians-some-respect film before, but this one is well done. The projects–or estates, as they are called in England–are almost personified as a fire-breathing demon that wakes at night (and occasionally in the day) to feed on the innocent. Caine’s reluctant hero is very believeable, despite the fact that he is an emphysema-ridden old codger trying to take on vicious punks about a third of his age. This flick is not unique or special enough to call it a Must See, but it’s a solid film that’s worth your time if you’re looking for a movie to entertain you.
