About Get Carter

In the opening Get Carter film scene, Jack Carter, a mafia henchman, comes back to Seattle upon hearing the news that his brother Ritchie died in an unfortunate drunk driving collision.

While attending his brother’s funeral service, Jack encounters his niece Doreen and a friend of Ritchie’s named Eddie. They inform Jack that Ritchie was not a drinker and would never drive when drunk. Eddie also states that Ritchie would not involve himself in illegal things. Carter speaks to a lady named Geraldine who will not share her relationship with his brother. Carter continues to try to find out information about his brother’s death, enraging Eddie’s widow Gloria.

Carter speaks to the owner of the club where Ritchie worked. His boss, Brumby, does not suspect foul play in Ritchie’s death but does confirm an affair with Geraldine who is the girlfriend of the local mob boss, Paice.

Jack speaks to Paice who reveals nothing. He tails Paice to Jeremy Kinnear, a computer magnate Paice sourced women for. Paice is now using this information against Kinnear to force him to run pornographic sites for him. Without any answers, Jack begins scrutinizing the camera footage from Brumby’s club.

He finds out about Paice’s home porn films that feature women that were drugged and then sexually assaulted by both Eddie and Geraldine. Doreen is one of the victimized women. Geraldine discovered Doreen was Ritchie’s daughter and gave him the footage, but Ritchie was killed before he could take the tape to the authorities.

Carter embarks on a journey for revenge. Geraldine apologizes and informs Carter about Paice’s plans to kill her. Carter discovers her dead body and then seeks to find Paice. Eddie informs him he is at Kinnear’s, and Carter throws Eddie from the balcony.

McCarty, Carter’s former partner, finds Carter, and a car chase ensues. McCarty crashes his car, and it is presumed that all in his vehicle are dead. Carter corners Paice who implicates Kinnear in Ritchie’s death. Carter tries to attack Paice from behind, but Paice ducks the blow. Paice beats him and tells him that Ritchie fought harder than he is now, an admission of his involvement in Ritchie’s murder.

Paice leaves for the dance floor with Carter following him. The fight continues. Carter beats him to death. Carter finds Kinnear who informs him that his only role was in asking Paice to get the tape back from Ritchie. He tells him Paice and Brumby murdered his brother.

Carter finds Brumby in a parking lot trying to steal the tape from his car. Brumby admits to his part in the murder but tells Carter that murdering him will mean he will spend the rest of his life on the run. Brumby starts to walk away from him. Jack calls his name, but Brumby keeps walking, so Jack shoots him.
