A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
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
According to 'American Rebel', "The Enforcer" grossed a phenomenal sixty million dollars in its initial domestic release, doubling that overseas, and making the film Clint Eastwood's biggest grosser up to that time. See more »
Early in the film the girl lures the two gas company workers to her home, where the bad guy kills the two men and keeps their truck for use in their heist. Later on, when investigating the heist, the cops finally figure out that the ruse must have been via a gas company truck and uniforms. There is no mention of why the gas company had not reported the disappearance of their two men nor their truck, even though the men's bodies were discovered "last week". See more »

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.
