This fish-out-of-water (cactus-out-of-desert?) film is notable primarily as the first pairing of Clint Eastwood and director Don Siegel, who would collaborate three years later on the seminal Dirty Harry. Coogan's Bluff therefore acts as a cinematic link between the two critical phases of Clint's career: the spaghetti westerns of the 1960s and the police procedurals of the 1970s.

On its own merits, however, this film falters. Uneven and bizarre, with an uneven and bizarre supporting cast, Coogan's Bluff is not worth watching twice. The dialogue is stilted and so is the romantic liaison. The lone cop motif is available elsewhere at higher entertainment value. For example, 1983's Lone Wolf McQuade starring Chuck Norris. If you are committed to watching a detective drama from 1968, you need look no further than Bullitt.

Caught this ON DEMAND, so cannot speak to the merits of the fairly old (2004) DVD release.

There are several aspects of this movie that remind me of several different scenarios in the Dirty Harry franchise. If your a fan of 1960's era cop shows or a Clint Eastwood fan you should enjoy this movie!

clint eastwood is noted for his acting and directing of action films. this film, however, is a let down in acting, directing, and script. characters are predictable as well as the events which contribute to the film's story. i wish i could be more positive because of my respect for eastwood and his films, but on this one SAVE YOUR MONEY.

Good cop movie. Offshoot of the Dirty Harry movies but still pretty good. Otherwise I would not have ordered it!

Eastwood movies tend to be offbeat, so if you want offbeat you've found it. But this is way off even for Clint. This is the worst Eastwood movie I've ever seen. He's lecherous, he's unfocused, he's just a pig of a human.
