Dirty Harry (1971)

Rating: ****
Cast: Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood is "Dirty Harry" Callahan, a San Francisco detective with a short fuse and a hot temper. He is one bad-ass that you do NOT want to mess with. After a psycho killer gets set free on technicalities and frames Callahan, Harry goes after him with his own unique brand of justice - a .44 Magnum. In addition to Eastwood's incredible powderkeg performance as hard-ass Harry, the film also benefits from great action scenes, witty dialog, and an intelligent script. Great stuff.
