A vicious serial-killer is on the loose in San Francisco and the police trace a link to a small town further down the coast.

With the help of his new Magnum handgun Harry goes on the trail leaving behind the usual trail of dead criminals along the way

Critical Reception

“The initial prospect of seeing ‘Dirty Harry’ part four was not an appetising one following the lacklustre ‘The Enforcer’. I was plesently surprised that the film improved significantly on its predecessor, whilst adding something new to the franchise.
” – JRT – IMDB

“With a perfect blend of drama and action, `Sudden Impact’ dispenses justice that is a fulfilling respite from reality; the perfect justice of a not-so-perfect world, that makes for a satisfying cinematic experience.” – JHCLUES – IMDB
