YMMV: Harry Brown
  • Acceptable Targets: Chavs.
  • Complete Monster: Noel Winters. He is a psychotic, misogynistic, sadistic teenager and the leader of the gang of chavs living on the estate, and he often abuses women for sexual pleasure while also engaging in regular acts of brutality, a lot of which he films on his phone. He and his gang regularly abuse Leonard to the point that the old man eventually tries to fight them with a bayonet - but the gang overpower and kill him, whilst filming his death on one of their phones. Although (whilst captured and being tortured by Harry) Marky admits that, whilst he and the others only really meant to scare Leonard, Noel was the one who ended up stabbing him. And Noel himself even urinates on the dead man's body. Later, during a riot on the housing estate, he is found hiding with help from his also-psychotic uncle. Having been confronted by Harry (and also having found a female police officer trying to call for help), Noel's uncle tells him to strangle the officer, and Noel takes pleasure in sadistically strangling the woman - and actually encourages her to struggle for her life, as he watches her die!
  • Crowning Music of Awesome
  • Moral Event Horizon: The opening scene, featuring a bunch of chavs on a motorcycle shooting at a woman with her baby. After pulling off the inevitable headshot, they leave off only to get hit by a truck.
  • The Woobie: Marky isn't all that bad really, and if he were it wouldn't make the stuff that happens to him any less wince-inducing. He's also the Butt Monkey.
