This is another list. Â And quite frankly it was created as an excuse to use the title ‘Watching The Detectives’. Â So… my top 5 favorite movie detectives (both police detectives and private detectives).
5) Harry Callahan- Dirty Harry. Â The man who pioneered excessive force.
4) John Shaft- I like the Sam Jackson Shaft but this is the original. Â Nothing beats the original.
3) Martin Riggs- A half-loony Three Stooges fan. Man, I LOVE the Lethal Weapon movies.
2) Dick Tracy- I love the man in the yellow coat but you have to love a detective who doesn’t have to actually DETECT, just look for guys with crazy nicknames and facial deformities.
1) John McClaine- The original Die Hard action hero. Â Barefoot across broken glass. Enough said.
