When we compare all these three movies, Bullet in the Head has more concern about social problems because it indicates Vietnam War and its consequences. For example, it criticizes militarism because in the movie soldiers (especially non-Americans or Vietnamese) kill people without any reason and violate them. The most crucial scene about the corruption in the system is robbery scene because when two friends burgled the jeweler, military forces came and gather gold from jewelry. Then, kill the owner and moved on. Therefore, this scene is a big reflector for the society and corruption.
Harris works and lives in the inner-city streets where the drug dealers overrun the city.

Although those police officers own more discourse power in the mainstream society, the detectives always despise their ability of case-solving. The police, like those police officers from the Scotland Yard in the Adventures of Holmes, and the detectives have a connection of contradictory and interdependent. The detectives often accept the invitation of the police to investigate. While at the same time, the detectives would provide the police some clues “in charity”, and rendered the police as gainers who reap where they don’t sow. In some hard-boiled detective fictions, the police are not only ignorant and incompetent, but also violent and corrupt.

The people were not sure that he was in Military, or anything else about him. The only evidence that lent to his story of coming from the military was how he went about his killing spree. He had a very militaristic way of doing things, but it was still never proved he came from the military. He simply was an out of place person in the wrong community for him.
