A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Harry Callahan - or Dirty Harry as he is known from the previous four movies in this series - is investigating a strange betting game. A list of local celebrities has been handed out, and bets are being taken on who will be the first to die. Things start to get interesting when the name 'Harry Callahan' appears on the list.Written by

At 91 minutes, this is the shortest of all the films in the Dirty Harry franchise. See more »
In the final scene between Callahan and Rook, Callahan walks towards Rook holding a harpoon gun with a spool of rope, easily 25 feet in length, around his left arm. The next scene is a closeup of the harpoon gun, being aimed, but the rope is no longer on his arm. The next scene is of Callahan with the rope back around his arm. And then again a closeup of the harpoon gun with the rope off his arm. See more »
For its German VHS release in the late 80s, the film was cut by 13 seconds to secure a "Not under 16" rating. These cuts were waived in 2008 when the complete film was re-rated "Not under 16". See more »
In one of the best sequels in the Dirty Harry films, Clint Eastwood returns in the Dead Pool. It is never a dull film, and the action starts right from the beginning. The movie begins when a drug-addicted rock star dies (played zanily by Jim Carrey). When Callahan investigates he discovers a sinister, twisted game called the Dead Pool, and his name is on the list of those expected to die. This is a great movie, and a fun one to watch. And of course, Harry has some memorable quotes; like his one on opinions. Also check out Liam Neeson in this movie as a director.
