Hellooo...

   Did anyone happen to see the Movie "Righteous Kill?" They have entirely ripped off a line from "Magnum Force" word for word. The line is "Nothing wrong with shooting as long as the right people get shot." Just thought I'd bring that up...thanks!!

I haven't seen it yet, but it did remind me of Magnum Force when I saw the trailer. I'm sure that line was put in there as a way of winking at Magnum Force.

That is one of my favorite Eastwood lines in a movie.

Righteous Kill was, and I'm sorry to say, kinda boring. I expected more from De Niro and Pacino.
Even the Magnum Force line didn't cheer the movie up.

Nothing wrong with stealing lines, as long as the right lines get stolen. ;)

I saw it the other night.  I liked how he used it as a quote, "As Dirty Harry said," said De Niro.
I'm with Glenny, though, it was boring.  I would have thought it would have been much better.  I guess the ending was o.k., but I almost fell asleep up to that part.

also, who cares if they use the quotes ? the more there's Clint's quotes in movies, the better (something like that).
