One of the defining film of the 1970s (by bwaynef)
Released on Christmas Day 1971, "Dirty Harry" transformed Clint Eastwood from cult figure to superstar. Another maverick cop thriller, "The French Connection," was released a few months earlier, and it may have won the Oscars and garnered the critical acclaim, but "Dirty Harry" is the true classic of the two, and the most influential. Great action magnificently directed by Don Siegel, the master of the genre, great dialogue, and relentless tension make this the ultimate detective thriller and one of the defining films of the 1970s.
"Go ahead, make my day" (by Quinoa1984)
It's interesting seeing Dirty Harry for the first time, since I expected to hear that catch phrase over and over again. I only heard it twice and both were well merited- the first is said to a caught bankrobber and it's spoken like it's right out of the script, direct. The second comes near the end when Harry finally has his culprit cornered, and all the rage and fury is revealed, which made me want to cheer even though I was watching it by myself.Dirty Harry is one of the best and indeed grittiest action films from the 70's, possibly from the 20th century, and it makes Clint <more>
Eastwood's Dirty Harry into a star by making such an anti-hero witty and likeable, sort of in a sense like an avenging, cop version of McDowell's character in Clockwork Orange both released in 1971 . In this first installment of the "Callahan" movies, Harry is brought on the case of the zodiac killer Andrew Robinson , and is given a new partner, which Harry can't stand, and as the events unfold he knows he has to get him. Robinson is perfectly cast as the killer, with his scene on the bus ranking as one of the more terrifying, visceral scenes in the movies. Very 70's, but it's hard-boiled status can't be denied for Clint buffs. A+
This movie might appear simple, plain, predictable or even childish to some fan art movie fans, but for me it's a true force! What it may lack in plot, it gains in superb acting, directing, script "The most powerful handgun in the world" line is just unforgettable, it's instant classic , and some decent social and philosophical ideas. It gives us a perspective on the way of maintaining order in the society which gradually decays at the astronomic speed. In 70s, it might have been an artistic impression, now it's close to reality. This is truly the best part ever played <more>
by Clint Eastwood, and agruably one of the best and most stylish action movies ever. I give it 9/10.
This was the first of the always-entertaining "Dirty Harry" cop series and it was a good one - maybe the best of the series.One of Harry's famous lines was in this opener: "Do ya feel lucky, punk?" Speaking of punks, Andy Robinson, who played the villain, never got famous as Clint Eastwood "Harry" certainly became but he was tremendous in this film. He didn't even have to utter a line: he just looked deranged! Great casting.Looking back, the one thing I really appreciate about this film as opposed to the rest of them in this series was the absence of <more>
Harry's annoying superiors constantly on his case. He actually got support from his bosses in this movie.The film as a big hit because people were already tired of all the liberal preaching of the 1960s in which we were supposed to feel sympathy for the criminal instead of the victim. This series was on the side of the cops, not the crooks, which is probably why the sick film critics never liked Dirty Harry.This is one solid crime story with no boring spots and no sappy sub-plots with romances, either. And it's always nice to enjoy the interesting San Francisco skyline.
One of "The" films of the 1970s (by MovieAddict2016)
Don Siegel's "Dirty Harry" was arguably the start of the serial killer/cop genre inherent in so many mainstream American movies released today. Setting the stage for countless rip-offs and sequels, "Dirty Harry" was one of the true first of its kind--not only in regards to its genre influence but also in terms of its content. Full frontal nudity, heavy vigilante-style violence and strong language. It is, in fact, one of the quintessential 1970s films--capturing the very essence of the typical gritty '70s film style we're all familiar with. If "Midnight <more>
Cowboy" began the trend, "Dirty Harry" extends it.Clint Eastwood delivers one of his finest performances as the titular "Dirty" Harry Callahan. He's got just the right amount of cocky cynacism and inset sense of self-justice and importance to make the character realistic and likable, despite his flaws.The plot almost seems routine now, but back in '71 it was controversial stuff: Harry is a tough cop trying to track down a mad serial killer in San Francisco, who is murdering victims in an effort to receive ransom money. When he kidnaps a young girl, Harry makes it his mission to disobey direct orders and take on the killer by himself.It's easy to point at this now and say, "I've seen this already." In many cases film classics can only be graded well for nostalgic purposes, because their imitators have improved upon the original material.Not here. The original really does still remain one of the best.Siegel would later follow up "Dirty Harry" with another examination of criminals and cops, and would also team up again with Clint Eastwood. This is probably his best film, which is saying a lot. Its reputation precedes it, but in this case, the strength of the film itself really is deserving of its popularity. The final speech is awesome stuff.
While people claim Shaft is the ultimate hard-ass, Harry Callahan would make the venerable private eye run for cover. Tough as nails with an attitude problem to boot, Harry was a social icon which encompassed the unrelenting nature of vigilance and justice, no matter who got stepped on. While rules and laws protect those who break the law, Harry was all about going against the system, summoning the power of his .44 magnum and making crooks think twice about breaking the law. In what was Don Siegal's best film, Clint Eastwood embodied a character that seems one in the same with him. This <more>
is one of the few films where I really don't look at the technical aspects of the film simply because the attitude of the main character is what drives the movie. Coupled with a great soundtrack by Lalo Schifrin, Eastwood didn't need to tell us what his state of mind was, considering the music helped establish the mood. A great movie that will forever be unforgettable.
Eastwood and his .44 Magnum blew away this original action classic! (by emm)
In quoting these famous lines: "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!" and "Go ahead, make my day!". They meant something for Clint Eastwood, turning from cowboy to hit man with a surge of raging anger and ambition. The mountain terrains became an urban metropolis, thus putting the guy off the saddle and into the bloody streets of San Francisco. Which makes DIRTY HARRY an incredible classic not to be missed, as well as Eastwood's shift to the action genre where society is run by evil. Its continuous impact of the events take place with a tight grip and a <more>
smooth pace. This remains to be one of the most entertaining experiences in classic movie history. All it takes is a cop over the edge and "The Most Powerful Handgun In The World".Violence was the key factor of DIRTY HARRY, and continues to be violent even today. We've never come to see staggering sights of brutalities before, but it was made possible to heighten the overall realism of a dark San Francisco infested with crime. Another was the quality of Clint Eastwood's character as "Harry Callahan", which was obviously a breakthrough for him at the time. He is best described as a smart-talking cop who hated criminals and broken the laws in serving time for the police. A very unique character he was, for going by his own personal business and taking the job "dirty". The best acheivement goes for the cinematography. It sure doesn't look pretty, but the effectiveness of the dark renders this haunting where no place is safe enough to run or hide. The real winner is Don Siegel, for presenting the perfect atmosphere to shoot a picture that already had a premise driven by fear and anxiety, anger and tension. He sure hasn't done anything like this before, and possibly no movie had since then. Otherwise, we would have still been seeing these one-dollar Western shows in the afternoon!Watch DIRTY HARRY today and you can see how the styles of moviemaking has evolved slow and easy, but it still packs a powerful bullet or two. If you've seen this six times or only five, you knew how lucky Clint Eastwood got the perfect part for being an all-new action star. This is the one, and original cop movie. And remember, this is "In Tribute To The Police Officers Of San Francisco Who Gave Their Lives In The Line Of Duty"!
Eastwood is the archetypal cop of the 1970s! (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
The film might easily have passed for a popular tale of cops and robbers or, more particularly, cop and psychopath had it not been for the ruthlessness of Harry's methods... In this character, Eastwood is the archetypal cop of the 1970s... He is unsociable, insensitive, silent without apparent reason, incapable equally of thought or of any human feeling, solving all problems with a blast from a revolver so heavy that it takes two hands to aim it... In fact, the reason why Clint Eastwood behaves so ruthlessly in "Dirty Harry" is carefully plotted at one point in the film: his <more>
wife was killed by a hit-and-run driver escaping from the scene of a crime, so he hates all baddies 'Dirty Harry' supplanted suspense by action, tension by brutality, character by a bigger and better bullet...Eastwood is a plain-clothes policeman who puts his faith in his Colt Magnum.44 and his ability to use it... He is ready to shoot down a criminal as arrest him... Eastwood brought the rude justice of the lawless West to the regular laws of the modern city... Perhaps his behavior would have been less controversial if he had merely been a renegade cop who broke the rules when roused by anger, but in the cool neon light of his superior's office, he is evidently unrepentant about his behavior...Eastwood had played 'Dirty Harry' five times in the sequels 'Magnum Force', 'The Enforcer', 'Sudden Impact' and 'The Dead Pool.' Callahan is always in a situation where he has to be his own judge and jury... Harry always gets somebody who's very lethal... In the case of "Dirty Harry", it was a psychopathic killer... Callahan wants to get him off the streets so that nobody else becomes a victim... He is a man on the side of the public... He feels that the law is wrong and he should fight that or try to solve it... Harry is not a man who stands for violence... He is a man who can't understand society tolerating violence... Eastwood is reassuringly indestructible and in real situations he adopts the fantasy mastery of a traditional Western loner... He may be beaten up, but never beaten by the criminals or by authority...
Dirty Harry is a great movie, and one of the best by mega star, Clint Eastwood. Harry is the kind of cop who does whatever is necessary to get results. The squinty eyed star is perfect in this action packed and sometimes disturbing hit. Eastwood, with his unique brand of humor, and massive handgun steal the show, but with strong competition from Andy Robinson, who plays the bad guy, Scorpio. Robinson is great in the role because by the end of the movie, you really want to see him dead, at any cost. He has no redeemable features. Even anti-violent people would love to see him get punished. <more>
This view of Scorpio is also helped by the eerie music which accompanies his scenes.This is a great movie and deserves it status as a classic 10/10
