It's at this point in the franchise where I question why I decided to re-watch these. I was perfectly fine letting the Dirty Harry movies just be memorable icons of my youth. It was Cool Clint doing his thing. Now it's all a bit cringe-worthy.
After this was over I rolled right into Sudden Impact for continuity....and lasted 10 minutes before tapping out. Not gonna do it.
I may revisit my DVD of Dirty Harry in the future, but I seriously doubt I'll make a run at the complete series again. There are much better Eastwood films, much better cop films, much better 70's films.
