The fifth and last Dirty Harry movie, at least that Clint Eastwood would star in. There was speculation on the web and in the media--which turned out to be false-that Gran Torino (2008) was going to be the sixth and final Dirty Harry movie. According to the book "American Rebel: The Life of Clint Eastwood" (2009) by Marc Eliot, Eastwood has publicly stated that he has no interest in making another Dirty Harry film. He said, "Dirty Harry VI! Harry is retired. He's standing in a stream, fly-fishing. He gets tired of using the pole--and BA-BOOM! Or Harry is retired, and he catches bad guys with his walker?".

Having just seen Dead Pool, the last of the Dirty Harry series, I have to say that I enjoyed this film as much as the other four. I don't have a favorite, I loved them all. Recently I became interested in Clint Eastwood's films and have seen a number of them including the westerns. Eastwood is an amazing guy. He has presence on the screen that is extraordinary. It's not that he is such a great actor, but I can't take my eyes off of him when he is in a scene. His face conveys such hysterical expression when he comes out with, "Swell!" or "Marvelous!" He's irreverent, gritty, rude, shoots criminals in the back, beats the sh-t out of them, antagonizes everyone, and so what. He gets the job done! I liked everyone in the cast even Patricia Clarkson and her nasal voice. Liam Neeson was great, sounding for all the world exactly like Ralph Fiennes. And the music in all five of the series was terrific -the best! What a treat!
