Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

An Identikit collection of corrupt cops and crazed killers confronts Clint Eastwood's Harry Callahan in this third film in the Dirty Harry series but are hardly a match for the no-nonsense lawman's unique talents. In a tiresome, violent tale involving a kidnapping, San Francisco becomes a shooting gallery in which the characters are set up simply to be shot down. Only Harry's new partner (played with spirit by a pre-Cagney & Lacey Tyne Daly) has any depth, but this intriguing relationship is wasted in a welter of sexist one-liners.
