Considered by many to be the worst of the series. I'd have to agree with that, but I don't think it's a bad movie at all. It just doesn't match up to the previous films.

Even with all the bad reviews I read for this Dirty Harry film, I think it was pretty good.I was more into it then the original.I loved the car chase with the 2 cars & the R/C car.It wasn't as good as the chase with the 2 buses on that 1 movie 99 And 44/100% Dead.I don't think any movie chase will ever be that good but the chase on The Dead Pool ranks right up there.The Dead Pool is Dirty Harry's last film in the series & I think Dirty Harry went out with a bang

The story is lame with a Villain that is neither scary or well played, and switching the villain almost at the end never works. The music is bizarre and the dialogue is ridden with unnatural swearing. The plot lacks interest, and Dirty Harry now seems like a joke character. First of all he is played in such a tired way this time around by Clint Eastwood, plus he does not even look like Dirty Harry anymore. Finally the character itself has become a complete ruthless …
