The Dead Pool 1988

The Dead Pool (1988) is the fifth and last film in the Dirty Harry film series, set in San Francisco, California and starring Clint Eastwood as Inspector 'Dirty' Harry Callahan. Liam Neeson and Jim Carrey also appear in the film.
Celebrity finally catches up with Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) whose testimony against crime kingpin Lou Janero (Anthony Charnota) puts Janero into prison. One night, Callahan is attacked by Janero's men at a turnoff near the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge while driving. However, he knocks down one of them with his car and shoots the remaining men dead before they finish their jobs. Callahan and his new Chinese American, martial arts-skilled partner Al Quan (Evan C. Kim) are assigned to investigate the death of rock singer Johnny Squares (played by a then unknown Jim Carrey, credited as James Carrey).
