Get Carter DVD Description
Jack Carter's brother is dead. And Jack (Sylvester Stallone) wants to know why. A Las Vegas mob enforcer, he carefully packs his guns and sets off for Seattle by train. At the funeral, he discovers his brother was full of alcohol when he died in a car accident. But according to his niece, Doreen (Rachael Leigh Cook), his brother didn't drink. Jack starts on a tortuous trail that leads, via gang boss Brumby (Michael Caine) and porno-loving thug Cyrus Paice (Mickey Rourke), to a Seattle computer billionaire named Jeremy Kinnear (Alan Cumming). Among those trying to "get Carter" is Con (John C. McGinley), another enforcer from Las Vegas.
GET CARTER is the second remake of the bleak and gritty 1971 British thriller of the same title. In the original, directed by Mike Hodges (CROUPIER), Michael Caine was Carter. The first remake was George Armitage's 1972 film HIT MAN. Scriptwriter David McKenna and director Stephen T. Kay have shifted the location in GET CARTER 2000 to the Pacific Northwest. While they have made it less perverse than the original, this version is more upscale, and more jolting, with splintered jump cuts and pulsating music.
