* DarkerAndEdgier: Geriatric widower with a distinguished military record lives in a bad part of town that used to be a good part of town. When he's had enough of the local teenagers' shenanigans, he shows them what a tough guy really looks like. Sounds like ''GranTorino'' right? [[BloodierAndGorier No.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Except... It's pretty clear from the paraphernalia in Harry's box that he was a Para - the knife especially - and the photograph shows a detachment in Ulster which would be quite inappropriate for Marines, so this maybe a case of Lost In Translation

MichaelCaine stars as Harry Brown, a [[BadassGrandpa widowed pensioner]] and [[RetiredBadass ex-Royal Marine]] who lives on a {{council estate}} terrorised by [[TeensAreMonsters feral teens]]. After an old friend confronts a bunch of them and is killed, he decides that enough is enough and is off to go chav-hunting. In essence, he's the British version of [[Film/DeathWish Paul Kersey]].

* CouncilEstate: The setting is a particularly run-down example; on top of that it's not too far from Michael Caine's real-life childhood neighborhood, where he's immortalized on a mural.

* OneSceneWonder: Sean Harris is onscreen for ten minutes max. He doesn't just steal those ten minutes, he points a gun at the clock and demands those minutes be put in a bag before speeding off in an unmarked car.

* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Alfred Pennyworth]] walks around kicking the crap out of, among others, [[{{Skins}} Cook]]
** All because they killed his friend, [[Film/HarryPotter Filch]]. The neighborhood he lives in does make his nastiness towards the Hogwarts students suddenly make sense.

** Like Gran Torino, but a revenge fantasy without the positive message.
