(film review) - Harry Brown

First and foremost, I understand that people do perceive this film as an old mercenary taking out guys/youths on his council estate as the police are too what-less to do anything.  I am under this impression because I have heard some views of what "they" have said about the film and to what they have shown on the TV.  Well, I will clear this up for you.
