Dirty Harry (1971)

The movie starts out with a murder in San Francicso, a mad man calling himself "the Scorpio Killer" (Andy Robinson) claims the murder and holds the city for ransom. Now it's upto Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) to find out who the Scorpio Killer is and bring him to justice. The movie is very fast paced, action from beginning to end and it's not that crazy WTF just happened action, it's that classy this s**t could happen action.
What I like about the movie is Inspector Harry himself, a cop who is willing to do any and every job that comes through his way, his only objective is to keep the city safe. The movie takes us through the judicial system, it shows us how vulnerable it is. The movie is pretty brilliant in that way, it not only shows us the cop and robber chase that usually get us all pumped up but also the red tape that's involved in putting a perp behind bars. With some amazing quotes, Harry's unique way of catching perpetrators, and the presence that Clint Eastwood brings on screen makes this movie a must see. So watch as Inspector Harry aka Dirty Harry with his own vision of justice, goes in pursuit of the Scorpio Killer. Will Harry bring the killer to justice or will he bring justice to him, watch and find out.

"Do I feel lucky?" Well, do you, punk?
