Classic Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry - 80's MOD!
"Dirty Harry just learned a new game!" Classic Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry Shoot-em-up in 1980's style! Guns & Roses music & a cameo during the funeral scene! Including stars before they were stars - Jim Carrey & Liam Neeson. Homicide Detective Harry Callahan is just taking care of business when a killer is loose in San Francisco. Fantastic car chase through the hilly streets! Fun & entertaining.

Excellent movie, Difficult to obtain in Argentina
I am fond of collecting different things, between them movies, Clint Eastwood is of my favorite actors, and I have the first 4 movies of DIRTY HARRY's saga , only I was lacking THE DEAD POOL, it finalizes her and very difficult to obtain in Argentina, if you like this type of movies or Clint Eastwood, I recommend to him to buy this movie.

PLOT: DIRTY HARRY is back for Movie 5 of the series~ this one has a CULT/HORROR MOVIE CREW TAKING BETS ON A "DEAD POOL" A LIST OF CELEBRITIES AND HOW SOON THEY WILL DIE~ DIRTY HARRY GETS ADDED AS NUMBER 9~<br><br>WHAT DO WE expect from a Good Dirty Harry movie~ 1. Great shoot outs~ 2.

Dirty Harry does it again.
All I really want to say is "If any movie stars Clint Eastwood it is, in all likelihood a fantastic movie. Clint, true to form, rises once again to the challenge and masterfully portrays his character. Good versus evil is the plot and all phases of the movie is believable in this day and time. In other words, it could happen like this anywhere, anytime and to anyone. Great movie.
