“The film is smart, quick, and made with real wit. It’s never just a crude action movie, bludgeoning us with violence. It’s self-aware, it knows who Dirty Harry is and how we react to him, and it has fun with its intelligence. Also, of course, it bludgeons us with violence.” – Chicago Sun-Times – Roger Ebert
“The Dead Pool isn’t the best and brightest of the Dirty Harry films, either, but just as invincible. It’s possible that Clint Eastwood and crew are just enjoying a bit of self-mockery with this one.” – Variety – Staff (Not Credited)
