Ending / spoiler

(8 votes)

After attempting to hunt Scorpio several times, each time with varying amounts of disregard for standard police rules, and each time a complete failure, Scorpio hijacks a school bus, and Harry goes 100% vigilante. Harry chases him down, shoots him in the shoulder, points the gun at him, and gives him the famous "Do ya feel lucky, punk?" threat. Scorpio think's he's bluffing, and tries to retrieve his gun, but Harry executes him with the last bullet in the chamber.

JJ Lison

Continuity mistake: During the scene on the football pitch where Callahan is torturing Scorpio to force him to say where the kidnapped girl is, there are several shots as if from Callahan's viewpoint. As the camera switches between the two characters, the white painted lines on the pitch mysteriously move or even vanish underneath Scorpio. (01:06:50)
