Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: While it offers its fair share of violent thrills and tough wit, The Dead Pool ends the Dirty Harry series on an uninspired note.

Violent '80s cop drama with blood and drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Dead Pool, a 1988 installment in the Dirty Harry series starring Clint Eastwood, is a violent love song to cops who care more about stopping criminals than about playing by the rules. The gory spectacle includes bloody wounds, knifings, shootings, car chases, explosions, a man setting himself on fire, and a man injecting an opiate into his arm and then dying of an overdose. Adults smoke cigarettes and drink wine and beer. Expect to hear "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," "bitch," and "ass." Harry goes to bed with a female reporter, but no sex or body parts are seen.
