I’m a sucker for the Dirty Harry series, and part of the fun of this one is a sense that Clint is settling personal scores. The press, directors, and film critics all take a beating. The critic, who reminded me of Pauline Kael, meets an especially mean-spirited end. “Do you like my movies?” asks the guy with the fake British accent. “Who are you?” the critic responds. Wrong answer, lady!
