Product Description

The Enforcer

From Amazon.co.uk

Trapped by his image in 1976, Clint Eastwood resurrected his Dirty Harry character for a third go-round (out of a total of five) in The Enforcer, a potboiler of a story in which the San Francisco detective takes on a group of revolutionary kids. Tyne Daly costars as a female cop who partners with the reluctant Harry Callahan, and she does very well by a role created merely to underscore and articulate the hero's various virtues. It's a dull package all around, but inside the wrapping are good performances by the two leads. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Harry Callaghan is back, and this time has to deal with hoodlums who are terrorising San Francisco - and kidnap the Mayor for a lot of money.

Not only that, but Harry has to deal with something else: the fact he has to have a lady partner on his patrol, Kate Moore is young and energetic, but at times very misguided and does not always get it right.

He's also got to deal with new politics in the force, his so-called dinosaur antics won't be tolerated any more, especially his unorthodox way of dealing with some punks who rob a liquor store.

This is an average film, with some great moments - especially the rooftop chase with the guy in the tanned suit, and also the scene where the gang are on the island - but it's not the best Dirty Harry movie, but not the worst either, I hand that award to "The Dead Pool".

The transfer is very good, 1080p AV-C, running at a steady 30Mb/s with a 7.1 TruHD audio track, so do expect some good audiovisual stimuli, this is the best Harry's looked in ages, even the original cinema reel wasn't this good.

There are some good interviews about the Dirty Harry series and violence, and a bit of background on the film itself, plus some good commentary on the film. This is actually better than the DVD edition, so I'm rather pleased about that, as it's a great improvement.

This is a great package, and I think it's well worth the price tag, I have all 5 Dirty Harry movies on blu-ray now and I can't say I'm disappointed by them, they're worth the wait and the money.

If you have blu-ray and love Dirty Harry, get this, it's an essential.

Clint Eastwood returns as Inspector Harry Callahan of the San Franciso Police Department, and to marvellous effect. This is the third installment of the Dirty Harry series, following up Dirty Harry and Magum Force, and see's Callahan pressed into action, against a force headed by the dangerous Bobby Maxwell, who are threatening to overrun San Franciso. Callahan refuses to have none of it, in the process he does what he does best in the other Dirty Harry films, takes out random villains and comes up with classic lines, all adding to an explosive ending. The Enforcer was panned by some critics for being too much like Dirty Harry, but it all comes down to taste, if you loved Dirty Harry, you'll love this, if you are an Eastwood fan, you'll love this, if you're just a casual film fan, or a critic, you'll probably agree with the criticisms, but in my view, this is the 2nd best in the Dirty Harry series.

Format: DVD
A group of wannabe terrorists kidnap the Mayor of San Francisco and attempt to hold the city to ransom but they have not counted on Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) and his Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver standing in their way. It all becomes a little bit personal when the leader of the group kills Harry's friend and colleague, Frank DiGiorgio. I hope the bad guys are feeling hungry because they're about to eat a huge amount of .44 calibre lead! Bullet-sprayed action and humour combine as Harry also has to contend with a new female partner - the recently-promoted Inspector Kate Moore (brilliantly played by Cagney And Lacey's Tyne Daly).

This is the third film in the "Dirty Harry" series and the only one not to feature a music score by the great Argentinian composer Lalo Schifrin but Jerry Fielding's lively, jazzy score provides a suitable accompaniment to the action. Clint Eastwood is perfect in the role of the taciturn detective, Harry Callahan, and it is hard to envisage any other actor playing the part as well as he does (even though Frank Sinatra was originally considered for the role).

Although "The Enforcer" may not be the best film of the "Dirty Harry" series it is still a very entertaining action thriller with enough gunplay to satisfy Clint Eastwood fans and fans of violent action cinema.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Russell C. Witheyman on 15 Jun 2008
Format: Blu-ray
The Enforcer is the third Dirty Harry movie and was released in 1976. Harry this time is on the trail of a terorist group who have kidnapped the mayor and has the added hassle of bedding in a new partner (tyne daly of cagney and lacey fame)for his troubles.

The enforcer is a good but not great dirty harry movie. Of course the whole thing is pretty average storywise and could have been lifted from an episode of starsky and hutch, but clints perfomance and a couple of strong supporting members carry the film along with aplomb.

The blu-ray 1080p transfer though is nothing short of a revelation. This looks like it was shot yesterday for the most part. Some darker scenes struggle but as soon as theres light the clarity and depth of the picture is fantastic. I have Dirty harry on blu ray too and this tops that easily. i have seen quite a few old films on blu ray and all have been an improvement over the standard dvd but not greatly, but this really does look superb.

Another by the book outing for Eastwood as Harry Callahan, which is by no means a bad thing as you get just what you expect, so if you enjoyed the first two, this third delivers more wonderfully nasty villains, shocking brutal moments and enough action to satisfy. It’s Daly as Kate Moore who shines in this outing, a tough female heroine playing superbly against Callahan, avoiding a cheesy love story between them, and instead she is a strong minded and effective officer in the field who is never used just as eye-candy, but plays a vital part in the film and is a great match for Callahan.

The San Francisco backdrop once more plays a supporting character, with the use of the wide, steep streets and winding rooftops for a majority of the action sequences, and a gritty look at urban life as the criminals stalk the streets looking for their next victim. Again, this doesn’t re-invent the character, but gives us the same winning formula you love about ‘Dirty’ Harry, and it was so popular that the original planned trilogy was extended for a further two future films.
