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. No emotion save fury ever shows. He's cold and calculating, with no regard for anyone but himself. He's one of those street-level enforcers who everyone in his environment (including the bosses) has to respect at all times because there will be consequences for crossing him, no matter what your position in the hierarchy. Other gangsters give him plenty of room and everyday citizens are automatically frightened whenever he wants them to be. He's not kidding around; he's always ready for horrific violence and he knows how to kill people and get away with it."Get Carter" starts out slowly and in a leisurely fashion. Jack reveals himself only through his actions. There's no exposition and little dialogue. There's a growing sense that Jack is actually more motivated by t…
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning London gangster Jack Carter (Michael Caine) travels up north to Newcastle to investigate the mysterious death of his brother. 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. This is at odds with some of the more light hearted, flimsier stuff he was famous for, like Alfie and The Italian Job, but he's a professional with the material and delivers the goods as can be expected. 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…
This excellent family movie features a deliciously lightweight, almost camply humorous performance from Michael Caine as Carter. In this one he plays a gangster who is addicted to shooting people in the head from a vantage point (preferably on a beach). Anyway, Carter decides to have an enjoyable day with his rifle at the beach. He walks along the shore, throws his rifle into the water, swims out to retrieve the rifle, then throws it back in the water again for no apparent reason. He spends most of the afternoon retrieving his rifle from the seafront.As the film draws to a close, we see Carter buying an ice cream, trying to assemble a wooden deck chair (a hilarious scene – the deck chair keeps collapsing every time he sits on it) and finally being shot in the head by a random lunatic.This early 70's gangster comedy is still one of the finest in the genre, even outdoing The Godfather in the laughter stakes.
