Review In an era in which the courts were increasingly upholding the civil rights of the accused, Harry Callahan stood up for the victims and a public weary of crime...Dirty Harry works so well because it is the perfect marriage of both actor and director with the material. Eastwood only took the role when Frank Sinatra dropped out of the picture, but it's hard to believe that anyone ever would have considered a saloon singer for a role that dovetails so well with the laconic persona that developed in all those Sergio Leone spaghetti Westerns. Like the Man with No Name, Dirty Harry Callahan possesses the unwavering will to settle a score in his own way, and a habit of letting his gun do his talking for him. As a political and moral animal, Dirty Harry is conservative-to-reactionary and firmly on the right, but as embodied by Eastwood's imperturbable aplomb, rarely have those traits looked more attractive...In 1958, director Don Siegel demonstrated his feel for San Francisco with the B-noir The Lineup, a TV-series-based thriller more notable for its locations, including the then half-finished Embarcadero Freeway and Steinhart Aquarium, than its half-baked plot. Returning to the city a dozen years later for Dirty Harry, Siegel once again proved himself a master of geography.

Review It is possible to see the movie as just another extension of Eastwood's basic screen character: He is always the quiet one with the painfully bottled-up capacity for violence, the savage forced to follow the rules of society. This time, by breaking loose, he did what he was always about to do in his earlier films. If that is all, then "Dirty Harry" is a very good example of the cops-and-killers genre, and Siegel proves once again that he understands the Eastwood mystique...But wait a minute. The movie clearly and unmistakably gives us a character who understands the Bill of Rights, understands his legal responsibility as a police officer, and nevertheless takes retribution into his own hands. Sure, Scorpio is portrayed as the most vicious, perverted, warped monster we can imagine -- but that's part of the same stacked deck. The movie's moral position is fascist. No doubt about it...I think films are more often a mirror of society than an agent of change, and that when we blame the movies for the evils around us we are getting things backward. "Dirty Harry" is very effective at the level of a thriller. At another level, it uses the most potent star presence in American movies -- Clint Eastwood -- to lay things on the line. 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.

Quotes
Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily An all-time great that keeps getting better with age...Robinson's Scorpio gets my vote for the most loathsome movie villain ever.
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader A crisp, beautifully paced film, full of Siegel's wonderful coups of cutting and framing.
Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews Clint Eastwood got the role of his life.
Time Out Seminal law-and-order cinema.
TV Guide A fascist film, or a film about a fascist cop? Either way, this is suspenseful, energetic stuff.
