From Amazon.co.uk

This first sequel to Dirty Harry was written by a couple of strong voices, writer-directors Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter) and John Milius (Farewell to the King). But that doesn't mean the film is particularly good. After Don Siegel's ferociously dark style in the first movie, Ted Post's blocky, television-ish direction in Magnum Force is a huge letdown. The story doesn't win any prizes, either. Eastwood's San Francisco detective Harry Callahan (apparently having retrieved his badge after throwing it away at the end of Dirty Harry) takes on a vigilante squad within the city's police force. David Soul is pretty convincing as the major spokesman for these right-wing avengers. Eastwood, on the other hand, had already turned Callahan from fascinating outsider in Siegel's film to purveyor of tough-guy shtick in this one. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Clint Eastwood returns in the sequel to his smash hit cop movie 'Dirty Harry'. This time round Harry seems to have met his match in a group of renegade San Francisco law enforcers who are using policing methods which even he considers to be beyond the pale. As drugs bosses, pimps and other street low-life drop like flies, Harry is assigned to track down the loose cannon cops who have decided to take the law into their own hands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Action Cop Film 5 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have to admit this film is no where near as good as Dirty Harry, but it still has the elements of comedy, action and good v evil that the first film has. Clint puts in a fine performance as the gritty cop, however I feel they should have highlighted his change of heart to retrieve his badge and become a cop again.

4.0 out of 5 stars a mans got to know his limitations 22 Jun 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Magnum force is the 2nd Dirty harry movie and widely regarded as the best sequel. This is true for the most part and had the film been cut by about 20 mins this would have been much better. As it is this is the longest DH film and is padded out a bit. The first half is a bit slow but the last hour really kicks into gear. Watch out for a young David soul in the role of a vigilante cop. An interesting story given harrys maverick ways and the story overall is quite strong if not a little too long as i just said.

This comes to blu-ray in a brand new remastered print and it looks good if not amazing. I have seen most of the DH films on blu ray and they get better as they go along. This isnt as sharp as "The Enforcer" but looks better than "Dirty Harry" still this is the best the film has looked or ever likely to look given it's age.

Well worth your time and investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb second installment of Dirty Harry 9 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
This movie was a blisteringly good follow up to the original Harry Callaghan offering, slightly derrogated at the time for having a far fetched story line, but really, it doesn't look that far fetched to me now: There's been plenty of true stories in the press of in house police management of cases that virtually amount to illegal vigilantism by uniformed police officers in both the the USA and the UK in the thirty five years since this movie was made, and it's absolutely the norm in many countries still, so really this was a fantastic fictionalised warning of the dangers of police power corrupting their own law enforcing officers. It finishes as well as it starts off, and has some superb cat and mouse scenes, with fearless cop 'Dirty Harry' pursuing these rotten apples with as much purpose as he does all the other scumbag criminals in the city who put people's lives in danger. And his realisation that this canker goes far deeper than he imagined, and his subsequent determination to get the big maggot in the middle is pure Dirty Harry, and makes the movie even more enjoyable. Terrific movie entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars That's three salty-lookin' dudes... 30 Dec 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With a posse of maverick traffic cops dishing out vigilante justice on the streets of San Francisco, Inspector Harry Callahan, previously not adverse to the `direct' approach, is transferred back from a stakeout squad to the Homicide division, and sets about tracking down those responsible...
Magnum Force, the first sequel to Don Siegel's seminal Dirty Harry, is one of the most thematically interesting American films of the 1970s. Obviously conceived as a purely commercial proposition, designed to cash-in on the box-office success of the first film, the sequel is less a plain follow-up, and more of a deconstruction and comment on both the character of .44 Magnum-packing super-cop Harry Callahan, and the perceived `fascist' attitude of the original movie. However, this doesn't alter the unfortunate fact that as a crime thriller, the film is a curiously muddled and flabby affair.
With the original movie accused of `fascism' by many critics, Eastwood and his collaborators (most notably screenwriters John Milius and Michael Cimino) here set out to show the naysayers exactly what true vigilante justice is all about, and how the character of Harry Callahan could not be tarred with the same brush as the killers. Unfortunately, to do this, the filmmakers have had to `soften' the character of Callahan to such an extent that he is clearly not the same granite-faced, borderline psychopath of the first film. Working far more easily with his new black partner than he managed with the Mexican one the first time around, sufficiently recovered from the death of his wife to engage in casual sex with a female neighbour (an Asian one, at that), and enjoying a cosy dinner with the family of a co-worker, Callahan is a much less anti-social being, and a more recognisably `normal' cop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harry, he is still the law. 17 Jan 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Magnum Force is directed by Ted Post and collectively written by Harry and Rita Fink, John Milius and Michael Cimino. It stars Clint Eastwood, Hal Holbrook, Mitchell Ryan, David Soul, Felton Perry, Tim Matheson and Robert Urich. Music is by Lalo Schifrin and cinematography by Frank Stanley.

The second Dirty Harry movie finds Inspector Callahan on the trail of a vigilante group who are offing Frisco's villains.

Following in the wake of Dirty Harry was never going to be easy, Don Siegel's film was very much a trail blazer of sorts, giving the movie lovers of the world a different cop than that which was accustomed. So what to do with Magnum Force then, the inevitable sequel given Dirty Harry's popularity? The makers come up with a great idea, have Harry confront a group of vigilantes who believe in his own kill crime ethics, only they take it to the extreme.

So begins a trail of blood for Harry to follow which leads him right where we the viewers pretty much knew he was going to end up. Post is no Siegel, and although the action and all round testosterone feel that so marked out the Dirty Harry films is exciting and evident respectively, there's periods where the film meanders. The instances that serve to add more complexity to Harry's make-up is welcome, but aside from a jumping bean turn from Holbrook, the director can't get much out of the rest of the cast, as shame since there's a lot of up and coming talent and stalwarts in the mix.

Still, even with its evident problems it's a lively and entertaining sequel, one that doesn't shy away from pushing some buttons and baiting of critics who had disdain for the first film. The ending is a disappointment, though, but the journey is ultimately meaty and macho. 7/10
