San Francisco Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) must foil a terrorist organization made up of disgruntled Vietnam veterans. But this time, he's teamed with female partner Inspector Kate Moore (Tyne Daly), with whom he's not too excited to be working.
When a madman calling himself "the Scorpio Killer" menaces the city, tough as nails San Francisco Police Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan is assigned to track down and ferret out the crazed psychopath.
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.
Inspector Harry Callahan, or "Dirty Harry" as he is known from the previous four movies in this franchise, 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

The television station scenes were shot in a real-life media outlet, San Francisco's Bay Area News Station KRON-TV, branded as also KRON 4 and MyKRON 4. See more »
Callahan and Quan as members of the San Francisco Police Dept. are being chased through the streets by a madman with a radio controlled car bomb, and they don't radio for help? They don't call for backup, relay their position, they don't have portable police radios or even use the supposed police radio in their car. The SFPD would have been all over that chase long before it ended. See more »
While not as drastic as the previous movies, the 5.1 remix still replaces several sound effects (mostly gunshots once again) with newer ones, despite the original mix being stereo instead of mono. There is also a music cue deleted in the remix in the scene when Harry finds the list at the Chinese restaurant that was present in the original stereo mix. See more »
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!
