The Dead Pool


When a rock star (Jim Carrey) dies, Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) realizes that the overdose is in fact murder; more celebrities in San Francisco are in danger… The fifth Dirty Harry film is nothing special, but has two ingredients that stand out – Carrey in an early part as the spectacular rock star, and a thrilling chase through the streets of San Francisco (playfully echoing Bullitt) where Harry’s car is targeted by a bomb-laden radio-controlled toy car. You wish the rest of the movie was that much fun, but the killer pretty much follows a template set by the earlier films.

1988-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed by Buddy Van Horn. Cast: Clint Eastwood (Harry Callahan), Patricia Clarkson (Samantha Walker), Evan C. Kim (Al Quan), Liam Neeson, David Hunt, Michael Currie… Jim Carrey.
