When a mysterious wave of killings sweeps the Mafia underworld, it's Inspector "Dirty Harry" Callahan who answers with Magnum Force. Despite a demotion by Lt. Neil Briggs for his questionable methods, Harry will stop at nothing to find the killers.
This first sequel to Dirty Harry was written by a couple of strong voices, writer-directors Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter) and John Milius (Farewell to the King). But that doesn't mean the film is particularly good. After Don Siegel's ferociously dark style in the first movie, Ted Post's blocky, television-ish direction in Magnum Force is a huge letdown. The story doesn't win any prizes, either. Eastwood's San Francisco detective Harry Callahan (apparently having retrieved his badge after throwing it away at the end of Dirty Harry) takes on a vigilante squad within the city's police force. David Soul is pretty convincing as the major spokesman for these right-wing avengers. Eastwood, on the other hand, had already turned Callahan from fascinating outsider in Siegel's film to purveyor of tough-guy shtick in this one. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" (1971) was a tough act to follow, yet "Magnum Force" (1973) holds up quite well. Read morePublished on Feb. 16 2004 by Scott T. Rivers
Yeah, baby, yeah! Clint is the man, and my man was at his best as Dirty Harry Callahan, the San Fran dick (slang for "detective") blasting the bad guys into oblivion! Read morePublished on Jan. 13 2004 by William Fevers III
I rarely give 5 stars, but this is one movie that deserves it! MAGNUM FORCE is my favorite Dirty Harry movie, and my favorite Eastwood film overall. Read morePublished on Jan. 12 2004 by MR77100
Are we defined by what we watch or review? Given my politics, putting out my two cents on Magnum Force is like Walter Mondale going to a Republican Party Convention. Read morePublished on Sept. 22 2003 by Daniel J. Hamlow
Somewhat dated, MAGNUM FORCE is mostly a curiosity of sorts because you have future tv/movie stars (the late)Robert Urich (VEGAS,S.W.A. Read morePublished on Aug. 26 2003
