Magnum Force (Post, 1973)

Magnum Force (Ted Post, 1973)

In this second installment in the Dirty Harry series, San Francisco finds itself under attack by a group of vigilantes, killing criminals, their associates, and anyone standing near them. This isn’t quite as ‘special’ as the first. I was still impressed by the cinematography, the way the story takes its time to set up, and the way the story and its characters unfold as the film continues. But it doesn’t break the crime/action norm in as many ways as the first. It’s not bad; it’s just not as unique. Additionally, it seems Harry’s personality has been cleaned up a bit and I didn’t buy his attitude towards the vigilantes. Oh well, onward with my adventures.  7.25/10
