Wow, powerful movie. As usual, Michael Caine gave a great performance. Much old man rage in this one.

Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?

My dad always told me not to fuck with an old man, and especially not a mean old man.

Doesn't matter what else you do in life or how far from it you get once you're in the military that uniformed younger version of you is always inside you.

That line from the trailer was the reason I saw the movie and I'm glad I did. Pretty good.

I really liked the scene where he is talking to the gut shot drug dealer.

I don't reckon you've got long. Seen that before. Gut wound. The slug's probably torn right through your liver. Mate of mine in Ulster got caught in sniper fire. Bullet blew his inside out. He screamed for a good 10 minutes. We couldn't send a medic in, the section was too hot. So we all took cover... and watched him die. I've never told that... to anyone... you should've called an ambulance... for the girl...

He says it with the proper English accent, it just seals it. Michael Caine did a movie a few years back called A Shock to the System. It is a black comedy about marriage and corporate America and a little black magic. Worth the watch on Netflix.

Caine is such a good actor.

He was great in "The Prestige", and delivered a fine performance in "Second Hand Lions."

Looking at his filmography, he's done a fair number of films where the scripts weren't equal to his talent.

How true! I saw him on a talk show one time and he said he saw a movie that was bad he thought he might have been in it.

I have never seen a Michael Caine film that wasn't a great movie.

Not even "Deathtrap" where he kissed Christopher Reeve. Yeah it was sick but the film was pretty good despite it.
