Continuing down the Dirty Harry sequels -- Zane came home from school and said, can we watch the next one?
The answer is always yes for a Clint Eastwood movie.
He was surprised that Dirty Harry Callahan wasn't as brutal this movie. I explained that the times were changing a little bit. Ted Post, Cimino, Milius and Eastwood put together the same character, but thrust him in the middle of some really brutal cops who formed a death squad preemptively taking down bad guys - shooting them down with machine guns and 45 magnums. Kind of like - see, Harry ain't that brutal. Unless he gets to put together a righteous kill.
It's a very effective flick with excellent camera work - inventive, but not 'tricky' -- Ted Post puts us in the action as often as possible. You can see why Eastwood liked working with Post.
