Magnum Force ★★★½

While nowhere near as mythic and morally fascinating as the first Harry outing, Magnum Force works like gangbusters as an incredibly enjoyable bit of peak 70s tough guy crime/action. Eastwood's still great as Callahan, and the new villains - renegade traffic cops - are presented like gun-toting giallo villains, all close-ups of leather gloves and face-obscuring over-the-shoulder shots. Can't go wrong with Eastwood gritting his teeth through Milius dialogue.
