Description by

When Jack Carter comes to Newcastle to inquire about his brother's mysterious death, racketeers think they can threaten him, rough him up, shoo him away like a fly. Which shows they don't know jack about Carter.

Academy Award-winner Michael Caine plays the relentless title character in this gritty neo-noir. Caine's Carter is a sharp portrait of cold-blooded precision as he connects the dots of a cover-up that leads to a pornography ring (John Osborne plays the flesh peddler's ringleader). Revenge is sweet for Carter. But in the hard world of latter-day film noir, sweet is sure to turn suddenly, violently sour.

Product Description:

A small-time street tough from London finds himself enmeshed in a web of deceit, blackmail, and murder when he investigates the circumstances surrounding the death of his brother in Newcastle. GET CARTER is a hard-as-nails British crime movie, featuring a brutal performance by Michael Caine that stands as one of his best. The film is based on the novel JACK'S RETURN HOME by Ted Lewis. It was remade for a blaxploitation audience a year later as HIT MAN, and in 2000 Sylvester Stallone starred in a remake, with Michael Caine making an appearance in the film as well.
