Harry Brown

Synopsis: In England, retired Royal Marine Harry Brown spends his lonely life between the hospital, where his beloved wife Kath is terminally ill, and playing chess with his only friend Leonard Attwell in the Barge pub owned by Sid Rourke. After the death of Kath, Len tells his grieving friend that the local gang is harassing him and he is carrying an old bayonet for self-defense; the widower suggests him to go to the police. When Len is beaten, then stabbed to death in an underground passage, Inspector Alice Frampton and her partner Sergeant Terry Hicock are sent to investigate. They pay Harry a visit but don't have good news; the police have not found any other evidence, other than the bayonet, in order to arrest the hoodlums. This mean that should the case go to trial the gang would claim self-defense. Harry Brown sees that justice will not be granted and decides to take matters into his own hands.

Tall, dark and mysterious

or just plain loaded?

I'm not telling you.

You're a cheeky sod.

Thank you very much.

Here's the news.

Good morning, this is Clare Miller

with your early morning news update.

Former MP Alan Peters will begin his

Peters was convicted

back in September

and will serve at least

Labour spokesman, Lindsay Rhodes,

said the party

had nothing more to say

of what was a sordid and sorry case.

Single mother, Karen Dobbs,

was shot yesterday

in front of her 2-year-old son.

A police spokesman says Miss Dobbs

was a victim of a random

and senseless act of violence.

The toddler will be placed

in the care of a local authority.

Traffic now, the M25 is closed

eastbound at junction 19

due to an overturned

heavy-goods vehicle.

Traffic police are advising all drivers

to avoid the area.

That's it for now,

I'll be back in half an hour

with a further traffic update.

Thank you very much.

That was Claire Miller with the news.

Lisa, where were we, brain or brawn?

What are you looking for in a man?

I'd have to say

brain every time, Johnny.


Morning, Sister.

How is she today?

She's had a difficult night.


Kath, my love.

Same again, Harry?

Yeah, cheers.

Make it 2, Sid.

One for my father, here.

Thanks, Harry.

Everything all right, Len?


How's your Kath?

I don't think she knows I'm there, any more.

She knows.

All right, Ken?

Got a 20 bag, yeah?


Nice one.

- Did you see that?

- What?

They don't even try to hide it now.

I found a needle in the toilets last week.

You think Sid would say something.

What's he gonna do,

call the police?


Besides, Kenny What's-his-name

slipped him a bung.

- Sid? No.

- Yeah, I've seen them at it.

That Sid is not who you think he is,

and the other one,

he's into selling drugs, guns,

under-age girls, the lot.

Christ, Len, why don't you

say that a bit louder?

You've got Cooking

or Geography?

Cooking, Dave.

Cooking it is.

This should be a piece of cake.

Fingers on buzzers,

here's the first course. Start the clock.


Stay there, in the house.

Oi! Get off him!

You animals, get off him!

Help! Can somebody help me?

Can you phone the police, please?

Can you phone the ambulance?!
