Until today I've never seen any of the "Dirty Harry" movies. I've been aware of them, of course, since I'm a living, breathing person living in America in the latter-half of the 20th century (and early part of the 21st, but there haven't been any new Dirty Harry movies this century... yet). But I saw the move referenced in the film Zodiac - The Director's Cut (Two-Disc Special Collector's Edition), and figured I should see it.

The movie tells the story of a cop who screws up a bust, breaks the law, and thus winds up preventing a suspect from being charged. Of course, I'm not supposed to think that's what the movie's about. I'm supposed to think it's about a hero cop standing up against... against... man, I don't know what. Not a corrupt system. Not against other officers on the take. Really, it seems like the only enemy, aside from Scorpio, is, in fact, the Constitution.

Despite that, though, and despite the fact that I'm as liberal as liberal gets, I still liked the movie. I loved some of the choices the director made, seeing Clint Eastwood is always a thrill, and it was really fascinating to see Andrew Robinson in the days before he became Garak on Star Trek Deep Space Nine - The Complete First Season.

This is a movie worth seeing and a DVD worth owning!
