Dirty Harry: The Icon
14 June 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Long Shadow of Dirty Harry (2011)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This 25 minute featurette takes a look at the cult icon that the character Dirty Harry has become over the decades and why the film and character would go onto influence so many other films. We get interviews with Clint Eastwood, writer John Milius as well as co-stars in the series like Andrew Robinson and Hal Holbrook as well as fans including Joe Carnahan, Shane Black, Michael Madsen, David Ayer, Peter Hyams, Joel Cox, John Badham and several others. If you're a fan of the series then you'll certainly be entertained by this featurette, which highlights the best scenes and quotes from all five movies. The majority of the running time interviews the "fans" of the film as they talk about how they first saw DIRTY HARRY and the impact it had on them. They also discuss the various political aspects of the series as well as things like Harry's gun and his one-liners.
