Short behind the scenes look at magnum force.
3 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have this on Super 8, it runs for 10 minutes and it's fascinating, and funny. It looks at the history of vigilante justice in America, and then absurdly links this in with "the new breed of police officer" that Dirty Harry is portraying in Magnum Force. Whoever's doing the voice-over sounds dead serious, but the story is baloney. It's just a good excuse to get behind the scenes of a 70's film, see how some scenes were directed, and see crazy car stunts with camera crews sitting in the trunk filming as the car does some pretty radical corner skids. It's got great old newsreel samples of a politician who looks likes he's been body snatched by aliens, as well as rare behind the scenes shots of Clint talking to director. It's very 70's and very cool if you're into that era . Well worth grabbing on super 8 or watching on DVD.
