Your Top 5 Michael Caine Films

My favourite actor and all round hero. He nearly came to my birthday party once.

In a very particular order:

1) Get Carter - The best British gangster film
2) The Italian Job - Stylish, witty and a wonderful soundtrack.
3) Alfie - Hero and villain. Funny but dark.
4) The Ipcress File - Classic Cold War drama with Harry Saltzman's anti 007.
5) Educating Rita- And not many people know that!

    He's a real easy one to miss from Battle of Britain (Christopher Plummer is always the first name you think of or even Ian McShane), only remembered him being in it because of early mentions on here

  • In no particular order:

    Get Carter

    Little Voice

    Harry Brown

    Educating Rita

    Escape To Victory

    I could easily pick 5 more worthy films but Get Carter has to be there for me along with Educating Rita.

    It's a classic and very much from a bygone age as exemplified by many of the location shots.
  • Zulu
    The Man who would be King
    Harry Brown
    Educating Rita
    Inception
  • He may not have been a main character but I enjoyed his performance in 2 films I have seen this year.

    Kingsman and The Last Witch Hunter
  • MC gets stick over some of his lesser films but few actors have done the number of excellent movies he's been in.
    Hard to pick 5 but
