This week two of my favorite revenge seeking tough guy bad-asses face-off.
Newcastle-born gangster Jack Carter (Michael Caine) moved to London to work for British mob boss Gerald Fletcher. Jack returns to Newcastle to attend the funeral of his brother, who died in what was officially listed as a drunk driving accident. However, Jack suspects he was murdered, and sets out to uncover the truth. Jack's subsequent revenge is unrelenting and brutal, as he destroys those he holds responsible.
Walker (Lee Marvin) works together with his friend Mal Reese to steal a large amount of cash from a courier transporting funds for a major criminal operation, with deserted Alcatraz island as a drop point. Reese betrays Walker shooting him and leaving him for dead. Reese also makes off with Walker's wife. Walker sets out to find Reese, take his revenge and recover the $93,000 he is owed.
Carter and Walker, two tough as nails bastards, only one can come out on top.
