  5. 5. Harry Brown Analysis A Moral Panic is something identified by the media that emerges to be a threat to society's values/ideologies. Often stereotypes are used. So one argument could be that... Harry Brown is a pseudo social-realism film wanting to be taken seriously. The depiction of the young out-of-control criminals is absurdly over-the-top from the very beginning. Harry states that the young thugs simply do what they do for entertainment and the film is happy to exploit and then continue to perpetrate this nasty stereotype of the evil, predatory juvenile delinquency. This is finger wagging at the youth of today at its most extreme and reactionary. The young criminals are represented as either obscenely arrogant, aggressive sociopaths or pathetic, desperate junky scum. Harry Brown is cinema for outraged talkback radio callers and tabloid readers as it revels in blatant fear mongering. February 27, 2014
