San Francisco Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan must foil a terrorist organization made up of disgruntled Vietnam veterans. But this time, he's teamed with female partner Inspector Kate Moore, with whom he's not too excited to be working.
A threatening terrorist group called "The People's Revolutionary Strike Force" demand a ransom to be paid, otherwise they plan to blow the city apart. While Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) is in limbo following his unorthodox method during a robbery, he's sent to dispatch the terrorist group, by playing their game. This time, he has a new partner, Inspector Kate Moore (Tyne Daly), which might prove the task to be somewhat more difficult than ever, unless the two can work together.
This was intended to be the final movie in the Dirty Harry film franchise, but, after a string of box-office failures, Clint Eastwood was persuaded to resurrect the character for "Sudden Impact" in 1983. See more »
Early in the movie when Harry is about to drive into the liquor store window you hear the sound of racking a pump action shotgun. It then shows one of the robbers with a double barrel shotgun. As double barrels don't have a pump, the famous racking sound would not be possible. See more »

Subject brain shows no contrecoup-type damage or blood clotting.
Oh, Jesus H. Christ, Harry, come here and look at this! It's the damnedest thing I ever saw.
What it says: "Eat at Luigi's!"

Harry Callahan's character name becomes Harry ''Callaghan'' in the Italian version and titles because the local distributor thought it sounded better. See more »
Second sequel to Dirty Harry has Harry (Clint Eastwood) trying to stop a terrorist group. But due to departmental quotas, Harry's been forced to take on a female cop (Tyne Daly) as his new partner. This doesn't sit well with everyone's favorite politically incorrect cop. But the new partner proves herself and the two surprisingly work well together. I loved the chemistry between Eastwood and Daly. This is my favorite of all the sequels in this series. It has a lot of humor, a good pace, and solid action. It also has the best script outside of the first movie. This was a good series. If you're new to Dirty Harry, definitely watch them in order because the '80s ones, while not bad, don't have the same appeal as the first three.
