Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What makes Dirty Harry worth watching no matter how dumb the story, is Siegel's superb sense of the city, not as a place of moods but as a theater for action.
Fresh: No less than Siegel's Invasion of the Body Snatchers, it offers a fabulous, multifarious political metaphor. (And, as with Body Snatchers, Siegel's own liberal interpretation was trumped by a more forceful hard-right reading.
Fresh: If there aren't mentalities like Dirty Harry's at loose in the land, then the movie is irrelevant. If there are, we should not blame the bearer of the bad news.
Fresh: A crisp, beautifully paced film, full of Siegel's wonderful coups of cutting and framing.
A movie that will make anyones day, if you feel lucky rent this movie
I know what your thinking. Did he fire six shots or just five? We'll Do I feel lucky? We'll do ya punk?- He got Lucky
This is one classic Clint Eastwood film. He funnels traits of himself into "Dirty" Harry: no nonsense, dry humor, some charm and a good logical mind. I'd rented it about a month ago, not wanting to purchase it and take up space on my iPad. It's worth the cost of renting and passing a lazy afternoon away.
