Enforcer, The: Deluxe Edition (DVD)

Released in 1976, The Enforcer marks the third installment in the Dirty Harry franchise. The film's plot has Inspector Callahan (Eastwood) paired with a new partner, policewoman, Inspector Kate Moore (Tyne Daly), as they hunt for a group of terrorists that are blackmailing the city of San Francisco for two million dollars. Callahan, none-too- pleased by being teamed up with a woman, must put his job first and the two attempt to shut down the terrorists. Moore, however, proves herself after she and Callahan pursue the terrorists to their hideout in the prison of Alcatraz. Special Features • New Commentary by director James Fargo Director Fargo takes an entertaining look at the film that launched his career as a director, including the day Clint Eastwood nonchalantly let him know he had the job. • New Featurette The Business End: Violence in Cinema An unflinching look at the ongoing debate on violence in cinema. • Featurette Harry Callahan/Clint Eastwood: Something Special in Films • Trailer Gallery

This is the third of five "Dirty Harry" films in which Eastwood stars as a San Francisco police detective. By the time the last appeared (The Dead Pool, in 1988), Eastwood had aged and times had changed but Callahan's non-negotiaable values and unorthodox methods had remained essentially the same. What I find especially interesting in this film is the relationship which develops between Callahan and his partner Kate Moore, skillfully portrayed by Tyne Daly. Until now, Callahan has indeed been a "lone ranger," alienated (by choice or circumstance) from his superiors and fellow officers as well as from the criminals whom he pursues with deadly efficiency. Over time, Moore eventually earns Callahan's respect and trust (albeit grudgingly) as they attempt to rescue San Francisco's kidnapped mayor (John Crawford) amidst all manner of mayhem unrelated to that assignment. Credit James Fargo with keeping the narrative flowing smoothly. The supporting cast is solid, notably Bradford Dillman (Captain McKay) and Harry Guardino (Lieutenant Bressler). There is plenty of action, of course, skillfully presented. Despite its lack of much subtlety or nuance, I recommend it to those with a taste for this sort of urban adventure film. Those who enjoy it should also check out Coogan's Bluff and Bullitt (both 1968) as well as The Gauntlet (1977).

Fans of Clint Eastwood's original "Dirty Harry" will find little to cheer about in this uninspired sequel. Despite good performances by Eastwood and co-star Tyne Daly, "The Enforcer" (1976) suffers from a poorly developed script and James Fargo's lackluster direction. The action highlights are rather sparse, with surprisingly few Clint one-liners to enliven the proceedings. Jerry Fielding's jazz-oriented score is a weak substitute for the pulsating rhythms of composer Lalo Schifrin. A definite low point in the Inspector Callahan series.

This is a real routine entry in the franchise. Clint seems to be sleepwalking his way through this one. Probably exhausted himself after starring and directing "The Outlaw Josey Wales" the same year. The flick lacks the urgency of the original "Dirty Harry" or the sylishness of "Magnum Force". This is not to say it's a bad flick. It's an average one that reasonably holds your attention. It just feels rushed and almost a cynical attempt to cash in on the success of the previous entries in the series. A disappointment when you consider the calibre of Eastwood's previous and subsequent work behind and in front of the camera.

A group of thugs passing themselves off as The People's Revolutionary Army (or something like that) grab a stockpile of weapons and ammunition, killing Harry Callahan's friend and partner in the process. Callahan's new partner is a woman, something he does not particularly agree with, and she can barely keep up as Inspector #71 tears through San Francisco looking for the PRA. The Enforcer (Dirty Harry #3) lacks the grit and energy of the first Dirty Harry and the excessive bullet riddled body count of the second (Magnum Force). In comparison it almost seems sedate, both visually and in terms of its action content. What the movie does offer is a solid, if a bit routine, police action thriller story made better than average by its script. Harry's deathbed visit to the fading Frank DiGiorgio and his snappy relationship with rookie Inspector Kate Moore are both well done. On the action side of things, fans will no doubt enjoy Harry's unique handling of a hostage situation, a foot chase across San Francisco's rooftops, and the kidnapping of The Mayor. Recommended.
Trivia - This is the only film in the series not scored by Lalo Schifrin. He was unavailable at the time. Harry Guardino returns as Lt. Bressler from the first Dirty Harry and Bradford Dillman (playing Captain McKay here) would return as Captain Briggs in the fourth Dirty Harry, Sudden Impact. Albert Popwell makes his third of four Dirty Harry appearances. In the first Harry adventure he is the wounded bankrobber on the receiving end of Harry's famous "Do you feel lucky?" speech. In the second he plays a murderous pimp who gets more than a simple traffic stop. Here is a black militant who agrees to help Harry, for a price. In the fourth he got to play Harry's friend and partner...uh-oh. Sadly he is absent in The Dead Pool.

"The Enforcer" from 1976(the bicentennial year),the second sequel to "Dirty Harry",(considered by many to be one of the all time classic detective films,Richard Schickel of TIME magazine,the late great Gene Siskel,and The American Film Institute included),may be a better companion piece to the original than the second sequel, "Magnum Force",(that's open to debate.) It came out at Christmas like the others and was just as big a hit at the box office. The screenplay by the late Dean Riesner who co-wrote the original "Dirty Harry" and the late Stirling Silliphant(Academy Award winner in 1967 for the crime drama "In The Heat Of The Night" and he co-wrote the disaster flicks "The Poseidon Adventure" from 1972 and "The Towering Inferno" from 1974),has a plot similar to the original.Except this time instead of one murdering,kidnapping extortionist,Harry Callahan has to deal with seven of them. I first saw "The Enforcer" in the theatre when it was first released(in the same place I saw both "Dirty Harry" and "Magnum Force",my hometown of Arlington,Virginia),and the movie still holds up after more than 20 years.It became one of the most popular of the series.It was on both the ABC & NBC television networks and was broadcast more than a half a dozen times,a sign of a ratings winner.In fact "The Enforcer" was the inspiration for the 1980's NBC series "Hunter". Tyne Daly gives a good performance in the role of Harry's rookie partner.Back then in the mid '70's she was one of the first women detectives.This was several years before she became known as Detective Lacy in CBS's "Cagney & Lacy" back in the '80's for which she was an Emmy Award winner.In an article in TV Guide in August 2000,Ms.Daly revealed that she turned the part of "Inspector Kate Moore" down a few times.Read more ›
