Harry Brown

If you were around the Heygate Estate (Elephant and Castle) late last night you might have noticed a riot in progress, complete with petrol bombs and police snatch squads. But it wasn't for real - it was staged as part of the filming of a movie, Harry Brown, that features Michael Caine as a vigilante war veteran standing up to the young criminals in his area. Not sure about the slightly dubious 'Broken Britain' premise, but its interesting to see Caine returning to the area he grew up in.
