  1. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Bill of Rights vs exorbitantly increase of crime rates. If we take these aside: 'Dirty Harry' stands for a lonely man, suffering from his wife's death, withdrawn & bitter and actually married with his job. And he is caught in the dilemma: how to catch the criminals without violating civil rights. Clint Eastwood is on his climax, Dirty Harry is cult & it doesn't matter how often, it will always make your day. 3,5.

  2. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    A more interesting film than the seemingly single-minded surface would indicate with some degree of edgy discourse between inert bureaucracy and a kind of just amorality. Eastwood's totemic gum-chewing slab of granite cuts the right jib, but it's a tartly visceral experience: high on circumstantial atmosphere but lowered by some Bondian throwaway cynicism. Schifrin's fused score however is a standalone treat.

  4. Aditya Watts's rating of the film Dirty Harry

  5. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    It's so familiar to anyone that it feels like a parody of itself for playing it so straight.

  6. Taib Mou's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    A Classicial American action movie ...

  9. BernardoDiniz's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Funniest reaction I've seen after being stabbed by a knife.

  10. Moses Lumpkin's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Don Segal and Eastwood are a good team, but its that score by Lalo Schifrin which ties it all together.

  11. Ethan's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    This is the film that cemented Clint Eastwood into badass stardom and kicked off a franchise for this gruff anti-hero. Don Siegel's film is one of the best cop films of the 70s and still stands the test of time in some aspects.

  12. Andrew Sax's rating of the film Dirty Harry

  13. Adriana's rating of the film Dirty Harry

  14. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    I like the 70s textures, but the film feels flat and lifeless (though far more alive than the sequels). Painful to say this about a Siegel joint, as he made so many more interesting films.

  15. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Not a huge fan of this one, which too often feels like a collection of set-pieces than a coherent whole; however, the final act surely ranks as one of the most powerful in 70s cinema. The school bus hijacking is a master-class of acting & direction, while the final showdown has Eastwood transformed into an almost supernatural enforcer; less a character in the conventional sense than an embodiment of social injustice.

  16. SiIencio's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Harry Callaghan is a disturbing character, a glorified happy-trigger cop with utter contempt for the rule of law and a not-so-subtle championing of the use of torture to fight crime. His iconic persona perhaps reflects on the political climate of the era, the America of Nixon, Charles Manson, violent coups South the border, American interventionism and tensions with the Soviet Union. Hardly a hero in my eyes.

  17. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    Siegel's functional, unfussy directorial style - in which prolonged action set-pieces are not chopped up to split seconds and the often music-less soundtrack doesn't pummel one's ears - feels like a cleansing experience if compared to today's histrionics of the cop thriller sub-genre. Bruce Surtees' nocturnal cinematography deepens the ever-present sense of urban danger and grit.

  18. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    "This is some of the least glamorous filmmaking of its time." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/03/episode-51-crime-dramas-of-don-siegel.html

  19. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Dirty Harry

    After making westerns as for the beginning of his acting career, Clint takes justice on the streets of San Francisco as a cop for whom we all call him Dirty Harry. Working with Siegel again, the film features a great action/mystery storyline to keep you pinned alongside unforgettable performances by Clint & Robinson and a tense but groovy score by Schifrin. Make sure it's his day when you're in City by the Bay.
