Get Carter (1971 & 2000) Blu-rays

Posted December 20, 2013 03:04 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. is bringing writer/director Mike Hodges' Get Carter (1971) and Stephen Kay's remake (2000) to Blu-ray this April. The original film stars Michael Caine, Ian Hendry and John Osborne, with the remake casting Sylvester Stallone in the Caine role and co-starring Miranda Richardson, Rachael Leigh Cook and Mickey Rourke. Both street on April 22, 2014.

Get Carter (1971) Synopsis: A vicious London gangster, Jack Carter (Caine), travels to Newcastle for his brother's funeral. He begins to suspect that his brother's death was not an accident and sets out to follow a complex trail of lies, deceit, cover-ups and backhanders through Newcastle's underworld, leading, he hopes, to the man who ordered his brother killed.

Get Carter (2000) Synopsis: It's not his turf. But it is his war. Las Vegas muscle and glitz meets dot-com, triple-latte Seattle, is a Vegas mob enforcer named Jack Carter (Stallone) who prowls the Northwest city to smoke out his brother's killer.

Complete tech specs and special features have yet to be revealed.

I think I'm one of very few people who enjoyed the remake.

Stallone one was decent; not sure if I've seen the original but heard it's very good.

The Michael Caine film is very badass. Don't know about the remake.

Wow, I'm surprised we are getting both of them on Blu as separate releases no less. I like both of them so this is a day one for me.

Get Carter (1971) is a must have. Which reminds me, would love to see Alfie (1966) on Blu-ray as well.

I prefer 'Hit Man' (1972) which is based on the same novel as 'Get Carter' but the Caine version is great too.

Love the Caine version, but the Stallone version has some descent merits, its a guilty pleasure

Agree with Mr. Eddy, both happy and surprised that I can pick both of these up.

Does anyone else think the plot synopsis as written in this article for the 2000 version is a bit strange?

Yes!!!
amazing news!
Get Carter is on Warner Archive and I was beginning to really think it wouldn't make it bd.
glad I was wrong.

The remake was a lot better than I thought it was. Haven't seen the original Caine version, though. Day one for both of them.

One of my most-wanted Blu-ray titles (the original I mean, obviously). Not expecting much in the way of extras, but if there is anything it'll be a bonus.

The original is is one title I have been waiting for. As for the remake, I don't think so. It's about as pointless as the remake of The Italian Job. 'Nuff said

I knew this was coming but, still, it's very much welcome to finally have the original on blu ray. Not a fan of the remake though, but I still welcome its release just because it means another library title debuts on the format.

Finally the 2000 version released, I was waiting for it for a while. Thought it was a very good movie. Rachel Leigh Cook is great and Stallone (who's in every scene but one), is great too.

Great news that we finally get the original 1971 classic on BBlu, too bad they decided to go with that boring cover. They should have used the cover that the DVD had in the UK with Michael Caine holding a shotgun in black and white, with the colored background.

The 1971 is very badass, the best Michael Caine prerformance I've seen...and a killer soundtrack. Hope they include the extra performance by the composer that was on the DVD. and it happens to be the first film by the guy that directed Flash Gordon. Too bad the boring cover art won't help it sell more. Never saw the remake. Wonder if I can hold out long enough for a cheap double feature release, or if the remake is even worth seeing.

The thing about the Stallone version is that Stallone wasn't the problem at all. He was very good. The pacing suffered though.

The main problem with the Stallone version was the gimmicky direction by Stephen Kay.
