Despite being equipped with an eight-cell 8.4v NiCd battery, not the race regulation 6-cell 7.2v, the bomb driver, Jay Halsey, was unsure if the "bomb" could keep up with the Oldsmobile. During filming, the "bomb" outpaced the Oldsmobile on numerous occasions, forcing the scene to be re-shot several times; therefore, the "bomb" was not driven at its full pace until the part when it was about to be detonated.

Callahan and Quan as members of the San Francisco Police Dept. are being chased through the streets by a madman with a radio controlled car bomb, and they don't radio for help? They don't call for backup, relay their position, they don't have portable police radios or even use the supposed police radio in their car. The SFPD would have been all over that chase long before it ended. See more »

Dirty Harry still has it. This film has all the mayhem, the violence, the wisecracks, the whole formula. Patricia Clarkson's delicate beauty is a good counterpoint to Eastwood's ruggedness. It was interesting to see actors like Neeson and Carrey paying their dues. When I first saw this film, I didn't realize that the "car chase" scene, running from the toy Corvette, was a spoof of Bullitt, but on viewing this time, I found the homage hilarious. No, this film isn't the equal of "Dirty Harry" but it's not bad at all for a fourth sequel.
