was a one-of-a-kind film, a British thriller that was genuinely thrilling. It had everything you could ever want - bleak locations, hard as nails villains, phone sex with Britt Eckland, a sympathetic killer as a protagonist, a very nasty main mystery and Michael Caine knocking the shit out of people who deserved it.
So on that note, this is quite exciting news. An "urban Western" about an ex-marine (there are no active marines in the world, only former ones) who must avenge the death of his best friend at the hands of thugs.
So far so normal. But it's got Michael Caine in the lead again, and that's your seal of quality right there. Not convinced? Check out the pictures:
