Get Carter is a 2000 movie directed by Stephen Kay and starring Sylvester Stallone, Rachael Leigh Cook, Miranda Richardson, and Michael Caine in a supporting role. The film is a remake of the 1971 film of the same name, which starred Michael Caine in the lead role. The movie is a murder mystery that follows Jack Carter, a Las Vegas mob enforcer, as he uncovers the truth behind his brother's death.

Jack Carter (Sylvester Stallone) is a thug who works for the Las Vegas underworld. When his brother Richie, a small-time casino owner, dies in a suspicious car accident in Seattle, Jack travels to the city to investigate his death. Although the local police classify the death as a routine accident, Jack does not buy this story and is determined to uncover the truth.

As he makes his way through the seedy underbelly of Seattle, Jack meets a host of shady characters who may have had a hand in his brother's death. He also learns that Richie had been involved in some questionable business deals that could have led to his demise. Along the way, Jack develops a close relationship with Doreen (Rachael Leigh Cook), his brother's girlfriend, and tries to protect her from the dangerous people who want to silence her.

Jack's investigation leads him to a corrupt real estate company, which is trying to take over the waterfront property owned by his brother. The company is owned by a powerful woman named Gloria (Miranda Richardson), who is not afraid to use violence to get what she wants. Jack's investigation also puts him in the crosshairs of his own bosses, who are worried that he might uncover something that could hurt their business interests.

The movie is full of intense action scenes, as Jack takes on his enemies with all the wrath of a man seeking justice for his brother. In one memorable scene, Jack gets into a brawl in a bar, taking on a dozen men who try to attack him. In another scene, Jack chases down a corrupt cop through the mean streets of Seattle, in a thrilling car chase sequence.

As Jack gets closer to the truth about his brother's death, he discovers a sinister plot that involves not just the mob but also corrupt officials in the city's government. Jack realizes that he cannot trust anyone, and must take matters into his own hands if he wants to bring his brother's murderers to justice. In the end, Jack confronts the mastermind behind the conspiracy and brings him to justice, avenging his brother's death in the process.

Overall, Get Carter is a gritty, hard-hitting film that showcases Sylvester Stallone's action movie credentials. The movie boasts a strong cast, with Rachael Leigh Cook delivering a standout performance as Doreen, and Miranda Richardson playing the ruthless villain with relish. The film is a compelling murder mystery with a satisfying resolution, making it a must-see for fans of the genre.
