5.0 out of 5 stars You've Gotta Ask Yourself One Question..., 14 Jun. 2005
This review is from: The Dirty Harry Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Should you buy this box set? And the answer is a resounding: YES!
Not only does it contain one of the greatest films in cinema history, but all of it's sequels too!
Everybody's heard Clint's famous catchphrases. Go ahead, make my day is really overused that it has become a bit of a farce. Same with Do you feel lucky, punk?
Classic catchphrases that are so well used they've lost their impact.
Watch Dirty Harry today and remember why they became such classic lines. Watching Clint say them again on screen for the first time makes you forget all the overuse. The way Clint delivers them is outstanding, and better than any other pretenders or gags made out of them. Clint really personifies the Dirty Harry character.
Yes, the first film is just as relevent today as ever, still as startling, violent and downright cool. It is even surprisingly funny, laced with a dark humour.
Even if you have expectations going in to see this film for the first time, it will exceed them in every way.
The rest of the films, however, aren't that great. The further along they go the worse they are. Magnum Force is decent, but not classic. The Enforcer is entertaining. Sudden Impact is watchable. But Dead Pool is dire.
For a boxset, the extras are a bit skinny, but worth watching. And another interesting facet of having all the films together is literally seeing Clint age on screen. But let's be honest, he still holds it well, even in his latest Million Dollar Baby.
Clint is a legend. Dirty Harry is a classic. Not owning this DVD would be a crime.
