This begins really well

This begins really well with excellent credits, introducing us uncompromisingly to the weapon of the title, some vigorous, if seemingly over zealous traffic patrol cop action, an amazing telescopic rifle execution of a whole bunch of crime boys and their half naked molls, some wise-cracks and even an aircraft highjack. But Ted Post is no Don Seigel and things soon slow down as the rather tiresome battle of words between Eastwood and his boss replace battle on the streets. Action does reassert itself and interest is just about maintained throughout but the film is far too long. I actually like the 70s slips from full on action to mundane ordinariness from time to time with the sun catching the lens and things happen without direct relevance to the story, but this gets too sloppy at times and it seems a long slog to a disappointing finale, or two.

The second best "Dirty Harry" movie.

"Magnum Force" came at just the right time after "Dirty Harry" had made Clint Eastwood an overnight star and that the film was still fresh in everyone's mind. This follow-up is great. The screenplay includes plenty of action, a fine supporting cast, good music and a bit of a twist to the tale for those who haven't read anything about the plot details of "Magnum Force." It is well documented that Clint Eastwood and director Ted Post clashed over several scenes during filming and that Eastwood's ego was getting the better of him. In addition, Ted Post felt his authority as director was being undermined. He refused to work with or speak to Clint Eastwood again. Whether any of this is true or just Hollywood gossip, is hard to say. What is a fact, is that a couple of scenes were left on the editing floor that should have been left in the final version. The script has some very good dialogue and Hal Holbrook is a great superior to Harry Callahan.

A Solid Sequel

Magnum Force (1973)

Plot In A Paragraph: Dirty Harry is on the trail of vigilante cops who are not above going beyond the law to kill the city's undesirables.

How do you follow up one of the best movies of the 70's?? By making a solid sequel like this is the answer!! Magnum Force is not only a worthy sequel, it's a really good movie in general. Hal Holbrook is an actor I've always liked seeing and David Soul is fine too, but this is Clint's movie and he dominates every scene from start to finish.

Magnum Force was Clint's biggest hit at this point as it grossed $39 million at the domestic box office to become the 6th highest grossing movie of 1973.
