*** 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.

* UnderestimatingBadassery: Brown's first kill is of a young man who no doubt assumed he would be an easy mark because of his age and intoxication. ''All'' of his targets clearly deem him easy prey because of this, never knowing that they're dealing with a retired Marine who's fed-up with them terrorizing his neighborhood.
