This box set contains all five Dirty Harry feature films: Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool. Dirty Harry: In one of his signature roles, Clint Eastwood plays a streetwise San Francisco police detective who gets the job done. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) calling himself Scorpio has killed twice. Now he's buried a young woman alive and threatens to let her suffocate unless the city pays a ransom. Harry Callahan will nail the perp... one way or the other... no matter what "the system" prescribes. Filming on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of Dirty Harry, a practice continued in its four sequels. The original remains one of the best police thrillers ever made. Magnum Force: Mysterious murders of underworld figures are taking place all over San Francisco. Criminals who have escaped prosecution are getting the justice they deserve, the sort of justice you'd think Detective Harry Callahan would approve. But if you think that way you've misjudged Harry - and so have the killers. Clint Eastwood headlines this solid sequel pitting Callahan against an unexpected lawbreaker: one who carries a badge. Sharpshooting rookie motorcycle cops have turned vigilante, rubbing out crooks the courts can't touch. Their real enemy is the system. Unfortunately for them, the system is what Harry is sworn to protect. Written by future directors John Milius and Michael Cimino, it's suspenseful, power-packed entertainment. The Enforcer: When Detective Harry Callahan stops a liquor store hostage standoff in his own no-nonsense way, he gets busted back to personnel. But not for long. When terrorists rob an arms warehouse and go on a bloody extortion spree, San Francisco's leaders quickly seek out Callahan - The Enforcer.Clint Eastwood returns for his third Callahan Caper, joined this time by a new partner, Tyne Daly as Inspector Kate Moore, who has two jobs: tracking down the terrorists - and winning Harry's confidence. Stoked with brisk humour, hard-hitting mayhem and the high-impact team of Eastwood and Daly, this exciting outing carves another winning notch in the handle of Harry's .44 magnum. Sudden Impact: Sensitive to outcries of police brutality, the superiors of San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan have sent him on an out-of-town assignment until things cool down. But wherever Harry goes, things just get hotter. Clint Eastwood hits the mark again in Sudden Impact, which he also directs. Harry's older and dirtier, and the world hasn't gotten better. Which means this fourth Dirty Harry movie is explosively exciting, as Callahan tracks a traumatised sexually abused victim (Sondra Locke) coldly gunning down her bygone attackers. Through the five Callahan films, the lawman always struck a powerful chord. But Sudden Impact is particularly potent, fuelled by the line that became a notional catchphrase: "Go ahead. Make my day." The Dead Pool: Fame isn't San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan's style. He'd rather not be lumped in with a rocker, a film critic and a talk-show host. They're slain celebrities named in a mysterious betting pool. And Harry just joined the list. Clint Eastwood straps on his holster again for the fifth and final Callahan caper. This time Harry's new partner is a karate wiz. The Mafia goons sworn to snuff Harry now scramble to protect him. And in the nuttiest City by the Bay vehicular chase since Bullitt, Harry puts pedal to the metal t outrace a bomb-carrying, radio-controlled toy car. It's a great showcase for two future stars: Jim Carrey is marvellous as an ill-fated heavy-metal musician and Liam Neeson hits the mark as a power-tripping director. For hard-hitting action, dive into this cool pool.
