Overview
Fame isn't Detective Harry Callahan's style. He dislikes being grouped with a rock star, a film critic and a TV host, all slain celebrities in a macabre betting pool called The Dead Pool. Another name just got added: his.

Clint Eastwood returns for his fifth Callahan caper, and this time Harry's new partner is a karate wiz. Mafia goons sworn to snuff to snuff Harry now scramble to protect him. And in the most amazing San Francisco chase since Bullitt, Harry puts pedal to the metal to outrace a bomb-carrying, radio-controlled toy car.

It's also a great showcase for future stars Jim Carrey, playing an ill-fated heavy-metal musician, and Liam Neeson as a power-tripping director. For hard-hitting action, dive into this cool pool.
