Ratings & Reviews

  1. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Another supposed exercise in the why and wherefore of vigilantism, both within the police force and without. Of course there's no substantial discourse (was there ever?) here centred on rape revenge as an unappealing justification and garnish for the expected bouts of violence. The gimcrack dialogue and canine light relief merely add to the paucity of imagination.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Quatrième "aventure" de l'inspecteur Callaghan, le justicier "légal". Eastwood / Bronson, même combat. On liquide tous les "méchants" pour pallier une justice laxiste et piétinante. Un thème récurrent dans l'air du temps... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Vulgar, infantile, fascist and sexist. And not in a good way.

  4. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Il poliziesco non è un genere che mi fà impazzire e anche questo diretto da Clint (in cui pone qualche accenno di Leoniana memoria) non differisce molto dagli stereotipi del genere:il poliziotto maschione contro colleghi incapaci o collusi,i criminali stupidi o super-incapaci e la legge della giungla da preferire spesso alla legge della civiltà.Tutto un pò eccessivo,e quindi quasi solo per gli amanti del genere.3*

  6. gaffordKINO's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Aside from "Go ahead. Make my day." this movie really has nothing to offer.

  7. Pedro's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    @Jack Hemingway: this is not the end to the series; "The Dead Pool" is.

  8. Neil Bahadur's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    One of the most unexpected and daring of Eastwood's films, at times moving into even total abstraction. During this, I realized that flashbacks in pretty much all of Eastwood's films don't resemble memories as much as they do nightmares.

  9. Ethan Vestby's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    Yo, this is totally about how violence relates to id, ego and superego.

  10. Celso Miguel Araújo's rating of the film Sudden Impact

  11. harrycaul's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    The only Dirty Harry movie directed by Clint, and it's the worst of the lot :S

  12. Jack Hemingway's rating of the film Sudden Impact

    An interesting end to the series.
