Dirty Harry movies got progressively worse from Dirty Harry to The Dead Pool. The first one is the best, the second one is the second best, the third one is the third best...

The Dead Pool, possibly because it was the first one I saw; possibly because my college roommates and I decided to bet on our own dead pool; I took John Candy, I'm sorry to say.

Anyway, harpoon for the win.

Did you folks know that Frank Sinatra was originally on tap to play Harry Callahan, but he broke his wrist before filming?

The movie posters, etc. were already all set to go before the studios had to find a replacement.

3 and 4 are the only ones I have yet to see so I’m going with 1.  Dead Pool ended on a bad note.  One of the worst Eastwood movies ever alongside Pink Cadillac.

Dirty Harry: A+

Magnum Force: B+

The Enforcer: B

Sudden Impact: B-

The Dead Pool: D-


Sudden Impact was the only one I saw in the cinema.
The last one didn't even feel like Dirty Harry. The well was dry.


Trivia: Sudden Impact was #7 on highest grossing films of the year behind notables Return of the Jedi and Terms of Endearment. It was released on the same day as Scarface, Yentl, Terms of Endearment, and Christine.

I'd give a C+ or a D to Sudden Impact.

Yeah, I remember you mentioning before that you didn't like it too much. That movie did have the line "Go ahead, make my day" so it's worth something :lol:

Yeah that's probably the best bit. The story just doesn't work so well and Sondra Locke doesn't help. There's still a few good Dirty Harry action scenes but it's not enough to save the film for me. By the time we got to The Dead Pool the best they could come up with for a new catchphrase for Harry was "You're shit out of luck." That is weak as f**k. Clint always has good lines in his films but that has to be one of the worst.

Well, I didn't give The Dead Pool a D- for nothing. I'd give it an F but Clint might track me down and shoot me even though he's now 125 years old.

I'd put The Gauntlet over all the Dirty Harry movies except the first one.
I'd put Tight Rope over all of them except the first two.

I'd put those behind the first 3 but ahead of the last 2.

I like “The Gaunlet” and “Tightrope”...and put “The Gaunlet” in fourth place ahead of “Sudden Impact”.

“Tightrope” would be in between “Sudden Impact” and “The Dead Pool”.

One of my favs is “Escape From Alcatraz”.

I quite like “Heartbreak Ridge” as well.

What do you think of Clint's westerns?

It’s pretty close between The Gauntlet and Magnum Force. For sure I’d put The Gauntlet over the last 3 Dirty Harry flicks. And it’s an even tighter one between Tight Rope and The Enforcer.
