Magnum Force ★★★½

For the first hour or so, Magnum Force is kind of repetitive and predictable but overall, the story holds up and is action packed, making this the best Dirty Harry sequel. I like the idea of dirty fascist cops basically going down Dirty Harry route but still needing to be stopped by our stalwart hero. Harry upholds his moral code no matter what and only punishes those who deserve it. San Francisco is again photographed beautifully and there are lots of interesting characters for Harry to snarl at. Very violent entry that is at times politically heavy handed and fairly unpleasant to watch, but still very enjoyable and satisfying.
