Dirty Harry must foil a terrorist organization made up of disgruntled Vietnam veterans. But this time, he’s teamed with a rookie female partner that he’s not too excited to be working with.
Picking up three years after the events in Magnum Force, a threatening terrorist group called, The People’s Revolutionary Strike Force declare war to the city of San Francisco and demand a ransom to be paid, otherwise they plan to blow the city apart. While Inspector ‘Dirty’ Harry Callahan is at a limbo following his unorthodox method during a robbery, he’s at it to dispatch the terrorist group, by playing their game by being more dirty than ever. But this time, he’s got a new partner, which might prove the task to be somewhat more difficult than ever, unless the two can work together.
“The script has some political context (home-grown terrorism, political correctness and equal-gender opportunity), but always stays true to the story than trying to undermine or overdo it. While it should be predictable, it does keep one step ahead and offers a surprise or two.

“Advertised as the ‘dirtiest Harry of them all,’ it is also the weakest… Without the experience of Siegel or Milius to help him, Eastwood took a gamble on James Fargo, his assistant director on some of his previous films and the result was competent action but a noticeable lack of depth and subtlety.” – ironside – IMDB
