Reviews:  After the drudgery of "Sudden Impact", the fourth and worst sequel to "Dirty Harry", no one could have expected the fifth to have any signs of life. But "The Dead Pool" is fairly inspired, even playful--check out a "chase" scene between Clint Eastwood's Harry Callahan character and a remote-controlled toy car wielding a bomb--and it ended the long-running series on an unexpectedly positive note. This time, Callahan investigates a series of murders that appears to be on a "death list," while becoming romantically involved with a television reporter (Patricia Clarkson). Jim Carrey has a small but memorable part as a doped-up rock star, and Liam Neeson is on board, too. Directed by Eastwood surrogate Buddy Van Horn ("Any Which Way You Can"). "--Tom Keogh"
