Have You Heard The One (TWO) About The BORED Teens?

You know, the ones who murdered another teen in Oklahoma, just for fun?

Or, this just in…WWII Veteran Dies After Parking Lot Beating

No, wait.  I’m not bringing THOSE REAL WORLD items up.

I’m talking about history repeating itself.  Well, sort of.

Not exactly history, but a theme.

The theme of the Michael Caine film Harry Brown.

You know!  The movie where Michael plays an old man (typecasting) who sees London failing around him – graffiti, gang activity, drug abuse.  London looks more like Detroit in this movie!  Then his best friend gets killed by a gang misguided yutes.  And Harry is alone.

And he decides to revisit HIS youth.  Not as a misguided yute, but as a Royal Marine. (!)

You can guess much of the rest of the film.  Call it Death Wish On The Thames.

An old man taking back his life by taking direct action against the unintended consequences of the ever-encroaching societal fixes imposed by a socialist regime.  (like gun control and a broken judicial system)

Safe to say, it’s powerful stuff.  My only complaint is with the heavy accents, subtitles would help us to understand the English.

Of course, the movie got scant play here in the Colonies.  I wonder why?

  1. Why didn’t it play here? Really, we can’t let the proletariat get big ideas, now can we?
