The gangster film, which shows the OSCAR-winning actor as ruthless killer Jack Carter, won the accolade from Britain's TOTAL FILM, followed by DAVID NIVEN's wartime movie A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH and Danny Boyle's BAFTA-winning drama Trainspotting.
The magazine's editor MATT MUELLER says, "Get Carter was slated at the time, but Caine's character is now seen as one of the greatest anti-heroes. It marks the pinnacle of his career."

2: A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH (1946)
3: TRAINSPOTTING (1996)
4: The Third Man (1949)
