Clint Eastwood Dishes Out Punishement,
This review is from: Dirty Harry - Special Edition [DVD] (DVD)I got this in the 35 Film CLINT EASTWOOD BOX SET and to be honest I had never seen the film before but many Eastwood fans loved it and now I have seen it I can see why.
Clint plays a police officer called Harry Calahan who gets the job done in a no nonesense sometime brutal way and the other police officers don't like it. The film is about a criminal who kills, rapes and just tortures his victims and it annoys Calahan, so off he goes to catch him.
This was the film where the quote Do You Feel Lucky.... Punk came from, I can see why Eastwod fans love the film and it has became one of my all time favorite films, there is plenty of action and the case at the end of the film is one of the best in cinema history.
The acting is top notch and the setting of San Fransico is like a character it's self as it lends it's self to some top action. Bank robberies, gun battles and killing along the way. I can see why there was 5 or 6 sequels.
The dvd has plenty of special features that Amazon explain so I won't bother going over them but the DVD is packed to the brim with documentaries, interviews and other goodies. The picture of the the film is as sharp as ever for a 70's film and the music does good at creating atmosphere.
So i'll end this review by saying you need this in your collection, you can get it cheap and you won't be dissapointed. It's one of Clint's best films.
