Any other GET CARTER fans?
Bleak stark and brutal with one of the most downbeat endings in British movie history.Class from start to finish.

OH NO! I KNEW someone was gonna mention that!
Now someone's gonna say 'I actually prefer......'

THE ITALIAN JOB
THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING
THE IPCRESS FILE
ZULU
ALFIE
THE EAGLE HAS LANDED
DRESSED TO KILL
ESCAPE TO VICTORY
MONA LISA
are also timeless classics.

Other's which may not be in the same league,but are still enjoyable IMHO are;

THE HOLCROFT COVENANT
BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN
FUNERAL IN BERLIN
BATTLE OF BRITAIN
A BRIDGE TOO FAR
TOO LATE THE HERO
PULP
THE HONORARY CONSUL
THE JIGSAW MAN
THE BLACK WINDMILL
EDUCATING RITA
BLAME IT ON RIO
THE FOURTH PROTOCOL

The man has made so many movies.

And before anyone mentions Jaws The Revenge,as the man himself has said,'Everyone has a mortgage to pay...'

Hopefully The Swarm, The Hand and Beyond The Poseidon Adventure managed to clear his mortgage completely.

I could have added The Island but I admit to quite enjoying it.

I like The Island & have the nice looking German release on dvd.The Swarm & The Hand are pretty bad (Along with BTPA) but very entertaining.
I like:-
Get Carter
The Man Who Would Be King
Billion Dollar Brain
Zulu
Fourth Protocol

The Last Valley was another good Caine film. Equally good John Barry score too.

Surprisingly his two Oscar winning roles are never mentioned by fans as being among his best. I liked Hannah And Her Sisters but found The Cider House Rules a bit of a chore.

Can't wait for Caine's new Death Wish/Gran Torino hybrid,HARRY BROWN.

Ageing Vigilante? Check

Chav violence? Check

Revenge and retribution? Check

Jack Carter crossed with Paul Kersey?
GIMME SOME OF THAT!

Yeaahh Sir Michael Caine IS a living legend!

"You are supposed to blow those bloody doors off!" Classic quote from The Italian Job!

I have over 40 Michael Caine films in my DVD library and already seen about 30 films of his! :-D

I also liked his film Get Carter - one of the greatest British gangster film of all time! Seen it 3 times! I also liked "The Fourth Protocol" alomg with the future James Bond star - Pierce Bronsan!

The Man Who Would Be The King is an excellent film and I have seen it twice! Anybody who haven't seen it SHOULD do! I assure you won't be disappointed seeing this film!
