This movie go's so easy, till that final climax! - torth

One of the greatest films of all time.

3 Dirty Harry

Hard to go against Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. However, Dirty Harry opened the door for Clint to star in a different role at a time when his role in the Westerns was starting to wind down. Tons of great lines in this movie... A true classic in it's own right, not just within the Eastwood film spectrum.

It has its flaws, but it rises above them, delivers memorable scenes, an edgy message (about who's actually worse, the vigilante or the murderer) and a great soundtrack by Lalo Schifrin.

One of the best soundtracks by Lalo Schifrin - mainstreak

5. Unforgiven
6. The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
7. Escape From Alcatraz
8. Magnum Force

Great movie, the way he bonded with his neighbors and outwitted the local hooligans. His own family was pathetic. They reminded me of how some families are today, always wanting something and giving nothing.

Should've got nominated an oscar for this movie, this is an inspirational story, - roblist

Okay movie,but didn't deserve the critical acclaim it got. Clint has made better that are actually lower on this list. Examples are:Dirty Harry movies,The Outlaw Josey Wales,etc. In short,i'm not too crazy about this film. I might give it a 6 out of ten if I had to rate it but that's about it.

5 A Fistful of Dollars

Awesome film, redefined everything that is a western.

6 Million Dollar Baby
7 The Outlaw Josey Wales

"Dying ain't much of a living"

My favorite movie all time.

8 For a Few Dollars More

Great soundtrack. Great villain.

9 Mystic River

Amazing cast, amazing story! If you haven't watched it yet, it's about time!

Although he didn’t act in this movie, it was his best work. The emotions of Sean Penn, the mental instability of Tim Robbins and the glue that put it all together in Kevin Bacon. The rest of the cast was excellent also. Watching the movie felt like a real experience.

10 Escape From Alcatraz

The Contenders

11 Play Misty for Me
12 Tightrope
13 Pale Rider
14 High Plains Drifter
15 Hang Em High
16 The Eiger Sanction

Hidden gem of a movie

17 Heartbreak Ridge
18 Magnum Force
19 Every Which Way But Loose
20 Kelly's Heroes
21 True Crime
22 The Bridges of Madison County
23 Letters from Iwo Jima

This is only top ten but 23 is way to low

24 Paint Your Wagon
25 Two Mules for Sister Sarah
26 Flags of Our Fathers
27 Where Eagles Dare
28 The Enforcer
29 Firefox

Great film should be higher up the list

30 Space Cowboys
31 Sudden Impact
32 The Dead Pool
33 Any Which Way You Can
34 The Gauntlet
35 In the Line of Fire
36 A Perfect World

Very underrated movie. He and Costner were solid in this cat and mouse drama.
