ProHard-hitting, brutal, frighteningly realistic

ConsSome idiot remade it

Don't you just hate it when films are all sugar-coated and fluffy, when you know at the neginning that by the end of the final reel the bad guy will lose and the good guy will win the girl as well? Makes you sick, doesn't it? Well, it does tend to fill me with nausea more often than not. Let...

“Stallone Is Back to his best”

published 05/10/2005

Prothe cast

Consfans of the original might not appreciate it

After seeing very little of Stallone in the past few years, he is back with an adapted version of the classic movie Get Carter. For all you Stallone fans out there, you will love his new darker approach in this movie. Sporting an awful goatie, which doesn't quite suit him, he seems a lot more...

“Get Carter (2000) Review”

published 11/08/2009

ProStallone

ConsLittle Action

Despite some interesting moments between Stallone and Rouke, as well as some nice editing, this remake of the 1971 British gangster starring Michael Caine is a pretty drab affair.

Product Information : Get Carter (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Jack Carter's brother is dead. And Jack (Sylvester Stallone) wants to know why. A Las Vegas mob enforcer, he carefully packs his guns and sets off for Seattle by train. At the funeral, he discovers his brother was full of alcohol when he died in a car accident. But according to his niece, Doreen (Rachael Leigh Cook), his brother didn't drink. Jack starts on a tortuous trail that leads, via gang boss Brumby (Michael Caine) and porno-loving thug Cyrus Paice (Mickey Rourke), to a Seattle computer billionaire named Jeremy Kinnear (Alan Cumming). Among those trying to "get Carter" is Con (John C. McGinley), another enforcer from Las Vegas.<BR>GET CARTER is the second remake of the bleak and gritty 1971 thriller of the same title. In the original, directed by Mike Hodges, Michael Caine played Carter. The first remake was George Armitage's 1972 film HIT MAN. Scriptwriter David McKenna and director Stephen T. Kay have shifted the location of this GET CARTER to the Pacific Northwest.
