Critical Reception

“The original “Dirty Harry” was quite suspenseful. By contrast, “Magnum Force” is much less so. Still, it’s not a bad movie, if you don’t mind lots of car chases and the sounds of screeching tires, and if you adhere to a philosophy that a lone tough-guy cop can protect us, with the help of his trusty “44-Magnum”, “the most powerful handgun in the world”.” – Lechuguilla -IMDB

“Didn’t like any of the sequels that followed this movie with the exception of Sudden Impact. Magnum Force is a film that rates highly as watchable again & again.” – MonteCarloMan – IMDB
