Our Score
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.

Summary

Maverick cop `Dirty' Harry Callahan is unwillingly teamed up with a female partner as he takes on terrorists who have stolen a shipment of weapons and explosives and plan to hold the city of San Francisco to ransom. Crime thriller sequel, starring Clint Eastwood, Tyne Daly, Harry Guardino, Bradford Dillman and John Mitchum.
