Dirty Harry (1971)


Clint Eastwood

Directed by
Don Siegel

Well, the Dirty Harry lines have come to stay over the years, so the decision to go see the film was one that has long been overdue in my case.
Dirty Harry is just in a league of its own as a movie and as a Police Officer he is ready to do all it takes to bring down the bad guy. Harry is constantly being held back by the rules and his boss. But here is a stubborn and determined guy and will do anything to get the job done.

Dirty Harry is popular for introducing into the crime genre the lone officer who is finding it hard to keep partners and always bumping heads with his superiors. The movie’s memorable speech:
I know what you’re thinking: 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?
Cannot be said better than the man himself Clint Eastwood. I have seen many of his movies in my days and I feel this is his best, the movie’s score in engaging and the portrayal of the villain Scorpio is one that will linger in my mind. The director got the actor Andy Robinson to play the role in a way that it will leave a mark, urging you to pray that Harry gets him in time.

Dirty Harry as said above is about a San Francisco Homicide Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood). Harry is known popularly as Dirty Harry because of the way he handles his cases and his regular misstep with his superiors. A serial killer hits the town and he killed a lady in the beginning of the movie and promises to continue to kill people daily, until the city meets up with his demand of $100,000.

Harry was on the case and with his new partner they cornered Scorpio, but he later got away, and then raised his demands and this time kidnaps a little girl.

Time is running out as the girl is said to be kept in a hole with limited oxygen, either the city pays up, or Harry catches him before it is too late.

This movie is the beginning of the Dirty Harry Franchise a Franchise, I plan on watching back-to-back.
