The cop thriller spawned many debates about the political stance of the movie and the issue of the conflicting rights of victims, suspects, and society.

The questions: It is a reactionary message piece against nonperfect, too “liberal” judicial trends that let wacky wild criminals get away?

Or is Don Siegel encouraging us to identify with the indiscriminate vengeance of the violent vigilante ‘killer’ on the side of the law?

I know what you’re thinking, punk. You’re thinking “did he fire six shots or only five?” Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow you head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself a question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?
