Before Con City, back in the early 1970s, a gritty crime thriller called Dirty Harry hit the cinemas. It was gritty, sleazy, violent, and a ton of fun.

Dirty Harry - Trailer

Starring Clint Eastwood as the title character, Dirty Harry tells the tale of a war waged by the bitter Inspector Harry Callahan on a sadistic serial killer at a time when following the rules just doesn't get the job done any more. Armed with his weapon of choice, the .44 Magnum, and smoking a cigar that cops of the era could hardly afford, he exudes a unique charm that draws the viewers in, making them root for him even as he resorts to extreme levels of violence in the name of justice.

The novel Con City takes inspiration from and pays homage to this iconic classic (and many others) in a way not even the 1980s spoof show Sledge Hammer could, or dared to. We highly recommend that you give this movie a watch if you haven't already done so. It will enhance the experience of the insanity that is the Con City Universe.
