This 1984 film was released in 1985 as a DVD, I think 2005 must be a typo. If you're expecting early Dirty Harry, it is not as violent and the main character is not as heroic. I thought it was pretty good generally but lacked suspense. The background music was clichéd and the pictures of training shoes walking ominously, although an Eastwood trademark, was not as sinister as usual. Walking around houses looking for baddies in the dark is a little unlikely (just turn the lights on) and should only be done once in a film for impact, I lost count of the number of creeping scenes.
