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.
A vicious serial-killer is on the loose in San Francisco and the police trace a link to a small town further down the coast. When Harry Callahan upsets the press and the mayor in his usual style, he's shipped out of town to investigate while the heat is on. With the help of his new Magnum handgun Harry goes on the trail leaving behind the usual trail of dead criminals along the way.Written by

When Harry is target shooting outdoors, the target in the long shots is in shadow under trees, but upon close-ups it is clearly in full sunlight. See more »
Hey, can't you see our sister's in mourning? Why don't you get the hell out of here?
[to Eddie and Carl]
Why don't you boys suck some fish heads, huh?
[punches Carl and is about to punch Eddie]

Don't even think about it!
I'll come back, when you're less bereaved.

When the movie was first released to commerical television, Jennifer's answer to the punk who wanted a lift ("Stick a jack in your ass") was changed to "Stick a jack in your ear." New commerical television prints change the line back to what it originally was. See more »
Sudden Impact is the 4th of the Dirty Harry films and one of the best traits of these films is that they don't really degrade in quality from one film to the next. Thus, Sudden Impact provides another thrill ride through the life of Dirty Harry Callahan. This time Harry attempts to solve a series of murders while on vacation. Harry's always on the job it seems. Clint Eastwood plays Harry as he plays all his men of action, slow, deliberate, and without fear. As the first of the Dirty Harry films to be made in the 80's, Sudden Impact lacks a bit of the 70's feel that characterizes the first three films. This doesn't mean that it's quality is any less. Bottom Line: Brimming with intensity and action, Sudden Impact is another worthy addition to the Dirty Harry series.
