Better than Dirty Harry. I didn't know what to expect after seeing Dirty Harry and frankly being a little underwhelmed. I was obviously blown away. The pacing was pitch perfect, Eastwood delivered a fantastic performance, and the storyline was engaging and unpredictable. Nothing wrong with shooting as long as the right people get shot!

"Magnum Force" by Yojimbo

weak sequel.

The weak sequel to the Great Dirty Harry. The film just is not done as well for multiple reasons. One is the story is not nearly as compelling thanks to lack of a good villain. This actually has multiple villains actually and they fail to even come close to the first one great villain. One problem is they are not played well another is they are going after bad people for the most part except for that Tolkien innocent is thrown in to get killed too. Also the way the villains look and act could almost cause laughter. The story is not intense because of the way the scenes are connected basically to slowly and lacking in any urgency. Clint Eastwood is still good but he does not have much to do except fight the bad guys in this one since the character's story was already really told in the or...
