Clint Eastwood is seen wearing Gargoyles sunglasses, which would later surface in The Terminator (1984). The latter film also spawned an ad campaign with Arnold Schwarznegger wearing the sunglasses, saving the company from bankruptcy. See more »

Fourth entry in the popular series has detective Callahan pursuing a suspicious and avenger woman
This is the fourth installment in Harry Callahan's popular series , the first is the classic ¨Dirty Harry ¨(1971) by Don Siegel , the second is ¨Magnum Force¨ by Ted Post , the third is ¨The Enforcer¨(1976) by James Fargo and finally the fifth titled ¨The black pool¨ (1988) by Buddy Van Horn. It's a formula thriller plenty of action , intrigue tense, suspenseful and lots of violence . Tough Harry abuses the murderer's civil rights and Harry in trouble ,as always , with his chiefs (Bradford Dillman) because his methods lead a pile of death in cold blood along his wake . At the beginning Harry Callahan strides grimly throughout streets San Francisco in pursuit of cruel baddies .This is Harry's penultime entry in which is sent a coastal small location to stop vicious murderer killing people . Rock-hard and taciturn Harry Callahan is called on one again, this time when occur rare death of gunned men on dick . Being the first suspect a lesbian (Sandra Locke), she is methodically executing bloody vendetta on the sickos who raped and a younger sister . Whatever your reservations about Harry's expeditious methods we know he'll always vanquish , shooting in cold blood with his Magnum 44 pistol( in fact, as is titled the second entry, Magnum force).
Fourth outing in Harry's series is less gripping and inferior than ¨Dirty Harry¨ but still exciting . Tension, action packed,crisped edition, suspenseful, thrills abound in this stirring entry . There are lots of action and entertainment and this time features Dirty Harry Callahan's classic lines such as ¨Go ahead make my day¨. Good secondary cast gives effective performance as Pat Ingle , Jack Thibeau , Bradford Dillman and Michael V. Gazzo as mobster chief appears uncredited .Usual musical score by Lalo Schifrin with a catching soundtrack on the main titles composed by synthesizer. Good cinematography by Bruce Surtees , classic Robert Surtees's son , and Eastwood's habitual. Taut and expert direction by Clint Eastwood and well produced by the habitual Robert Daley and Malpaso Productions . Rating : 6. Acceptable and passable. Well worth seeing for Clint Eastwood fans and Harry Callahan's followers . It's a cool companion to Dirty Harry classic, an amusing film with several scenes that'll have you on the edge of your seat
