Picking up three years after the events in Magnum Force, a threatening terrorist group called, The People's Revolutionary Strike Force declare war to the city of San Francisco and demand a ransom to be paid, otherwise they plan to blow the city apart. While Inspector 'Dirty' Harry Callahan is at a limbo following his unorthodox method during a robbery, he's at it to dispatch the terrorist group, by playing their game by being more dirty than ever. But this time, he's got a new partner, which might prove the task to be somewhat more difficult than ever, unless the two can work together. Written by
When Harry is about to enter the liquor store, his partner DiGeorgiou asks if he needs help but Harry responds that he 'may need to move fast and doesn't need too much linguini slowing him down'. This is a reference to Dirty Harry (1971) when DiGeorgious cannot climb over the fence with Harry to get into the football stadium due to his weight, with the excuse "Too much Linguini". See more »
In the long shots of the fire boat, Harry is turning the water cannon to the left, toward the guard tower. In the close ups he is turning it to the right, away from the tower. See more »
A 357 magnum is a good weapon, but I've seen 38's bounce off of windshieds. No good in a city like this.

This is the third installment of the Dirty Harry series, all starring the legendary four-times Academy Award-winning actor and director Clint Eastwood. Naturally, it's not as powerful and dramatic as the first of the series, because, once again naturally, sequels are difficult to make. Especially if you want them to live up to their proceeding movies.
"The Enforcer", like all five installments of the series, is a great action-crime film with it's own little individual plot and point. It's got plenty of decent action, Eastwood flaring away with his .44 Magnum revolver, punching bleeding holes through his challengers.
This movie has also got a pretty dramatic ending.
Overall, "The Enforcer" is another classic Clint Eastwood movie and definitely worth checking out and seeing a few times over.
