The Dead Pool Diretto da Buddy Van Horn


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!

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film The Dead Pool

    Dirty Harry goes slasher film. And its memorable scenes include seeing Jim Carrey singing Guns N’ Roses and Liam Nesson with a ponytail and earring as a hack horror director. That’s two things I never thought I’d write. You certainly can’t say this 5th film isn’t interesting or not entertaining. Don’t take it seriously and honestly it is the funnest, if lamest and corniest, of the series. As good as the 1st sequel.

  • Hunter Duesing's rating of the film The Dead Pool

    Eastwood's last outing as Dirty Harry is some goofy-ass fun. Jim Carrey does Axl Rose, Liam Neeson has a sleazy ponytail, Patricia Clarkson sets out to nab her some Clint, Pauline Kael gets her comeuppance for the review she wrote of "Dirty Harry" in the New Yorker, and Harry FINALLY gets to wield a harpoon gun, because that .357 magnum is for pussies anyway. The remote-control carbomb chase is an absurd delight.

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Dead Pool

    A hackneyed and tired coda to something which should have terminated on its first bravura outing. By entry number five, the reactionary fire is out and there's little left apart from a star-turn on autopilot wading through a gimcrack script peppered with the kind of deadening novelty then familiar in mainstream filmmaking - gadgetry, ludicrous weaponry, a kung-fu sidekick, et al. A dead loss.

  • Dalibor's rating of the film The Dead Pool

    For a fifth part of an action film series, it's really not that bad. The entire horror-film premise is a charming flirt with B-movie action flicks, while a remote control car-bomb sequence would, if introduced within a more successful sequel, probably become a recognizable pop-culture reference. What's missing is a better script, one which would encompass all the interesting details within a clever suspense.

  • Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Dead Pool

    Harry Callahan done as a Hollywood crowd-pleaser. Only a fun sequence with a bomb on a toy car that probably gave fruit to the gaming sequences in the first "Grand Theft Auto" video games is fun to watch, but this too comedic to be a "normal" Dirty Harry movie - a problem as it premiered in a time when box office figures became more and more important.
