The second Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force concerns itself with a vigilante group that has targeted notorious scofflaws for extermination. When a prominent gang boss or drug-runner is set free by the airheaded liberal courts, a covert group of "avengers" is soon on hand to blow the miscreant to bits. While detective Dirty Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) is no great friend of civil liberties, he is dead set against wholesale murder as a solution to legal loopholes. Discovering that all the killings have been committed by the same weapon, Callahan reaches the conclusion that his on-the-edge partner, Charlie McCoy (Mitchell Ryan), is responsible. But the answer is less transparent than that, as Harry learns almost at the cost of his own life. Co-scripted by John Milius and Michael Cimino, Magnum Force was followed by three additional Dirty Harry installments: The Enforcer (1976), Sudden Impact (1983) and The Dead Pool (1988).

Nothing could come close to the unbelievably violent (for its time) Dirty Harry with a sequel. Going after "dirty cops" excuse the pun, after they kill many punks because of the liberalized courts of the 70's, it doesn't carry the weight of the anger and rage towards the buearcracy or the Establishment in the 1970's.

This is another classic Eastwood movie. It is not the same as Dirty Harry, but just as good. Noone except Clint Eastwood could pull this off.
