Michael Caine is the reflective soldier, "Harry Brown"

"Harry Brown" is being favorably compared to Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino," which also features an old man confronting the gang violence. Whereas one would expect the Clint Eastwood hero to solve his own problems, one can not be as certain with a Michael Caine hero. Thus "Harry Brown" creates more tension for the leading man in a hostile environment, an environment envisioned by "A Clockwork Organge" starring Malcom McDowell.
