Double Academy Award winner Michael Caine has rarely looked cooler as the well dressed heavy, attempting to uncover the facts behind the death of his brother, in this hard-boiled thriller. The film tracks Caine as he becomes embroiled in the sinister underworld of crime and pornography. John Osborne ('Look Back in Anger') stars as the flesh peddlers' ringleader, whilst sultry Bond girl Britt Ekland sizzles as Caine's London girl. Get Carter's powerful combination of violence and corruption, with its dark portrayal of England, especially Newcastle, signaled the end of the sugar-coated 60's ushering in a more cynical style of film-making.
