Clint Eastwood is still Harry and has good old-fashioned action with the Magnum, but sadly the film is not as well written as the original and some of the focus is taken away from Harry to other cops in the film as we get a more political correct message about cops who should not take matters in their own hands like Harry.
More from the Duracell Bunny of loose cannon policing. Not a patch on the original but it's effective enough in terms of storyboarded efficiency with a fairly interesting central notion of vigilantism within the police force buried under the pile of cadavers dispatched with workaday indifference.
The second Dirty Harry film may not be as sharply-crafted or deep as its predecessor, but it's still a very entertaining kick-ass 70s action movie. The plot is unevenly paced, and the central mystery isn't too hard to figure out, but several solid action scenes and Clint Eastwood in one of his most iconic roles pull it through. Great (though very dated) score by Lalo Schifrin.
