The credits are played over a hand (presumably Harry's) holding a 44 Magnum against a red background. As such, this is the only Dirty Harry movie in which the opening credits are not played over San Francisco scenery. See more »
Dirty Harry must find out who is behind some vigilante killings.
This Dirty Harry movie to me was rather good, much better than the next movie in the series "The Enforcer", for some reason that is just one Dirty Harry movie I can not sit down and watch without becoming bored. This one though I found interesting as Dirty Harry must track down a person who is killing some of the worst criminals ever, someone Harry would probably like, but he is not doing things within the law and despite all of Harry's frustrations he still believes in doing things the right way. Of course, it becomes sort of clear that there is more to the killings than meets the eye, that there is more to it and that it may run deeper than Harry realizes at first, but you know in the end he is going to get the killer and that he will take out a few bad guys his own way along the way. Rather good action, the story is good too, though in a way it reminds me a bit of a later Dirty Harry movie "Sudden Impact", though the situations are totally different as for the whys and such. Still, in the end this one has enough of a story to keep you interested and the ending surprised me a bit when I first saw it.
