Don Siegel’s DIRTY HARRY
(R, 102 min, 1971)
“You’ve got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky?” Clint Eastwood stars as no-holds-barred San Francisco cop Dirty Harry Callahan in this action thriller that began an action franchise. When detective Callahan is assigned to pay extortion money to a serial murderer, the payoff goes wrong. Now with the life of a 14-year-old girl at stake, Callahan refuses to allow anything — including the law — to keep him from stopping the killer.
John Carpenter’s ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13
(R, 1976, 91 min)
When the Los Angelos Police Department kills several members of the South Central gang Street Thunder, the remaining members avenge themselves by way of a bloody war waged against cops and citizens alike. Caught in the crossfire is Lt. Ethan Bishop (Austin Stoker), who’s managing a skeleton crew at the local and soon-to-be-closed police precinct. As the gang members close in, Bishop forms an unlikely alliance with a group of prisoners to defend the station and the lives of everyone in it.
