Customer Reviews

The bad guy really makes you hate him too!
Robert Wallace
This is classic Clint Eastwood at his best in the 4th of the "Dirty Harry" Callahan movies.
Steven R.
The title of this film really makes no sense: None of the actions has a sudden impact.
Robert Morris

The vigilante has long held a fascination for audiences, inasmuch as it evokes a sense of swift, sure justice; good triumphs over evil and the bad guy gets his deserts. It is, in fact, one of the things that has made the character of Dirty Harry Callahan (as played by Clint Eastwood) so popular. He carries a badge and works within the law, but at heart, Harry is a vigilante, meting out justice "his" way, which often puts him in conflict with his own superiors, as well as the criminals he's pursuing. But it's what draws the audience; anyone who's ever been bogged down in bureaucratic nonsense of one kind or another, delights in seeing someone cut through the red tape and get on with it-- even if it's only on the screen. And that satisfaction derived from seeing justice done-- and quickly-- is one of the elements that makes "Sudden Impact," directed by and starring Eastwood, so successful. In this one, the fourth of the series, while working a homicide, Harry encounters a bona fide vigilante at work-- an individual whose brand of justice parallels his own, with one exception: Whoever it is, he's definitely not carrying a badge.
In his own inimitable way, Inspector Callahan has once again ended up on the bad side of the department and is ordered to take some vacation time. So he does; as only "Dirty Harry" can. In a small town north of San Francisco, Harry finds himself smack dab in the middle of a homicide case, which he quickly links to a recent murder in San Francisco because of the unique M.O. employed by the perpetrator. Unaccountably, Harry encounters resistance from the local Police Chief, Jannings (Pat Hingle), who advises him to take his big city tactics and methods elsewhere.

Format: VHS Tape
When I first saw this film I thought Clint Eastwood had flipped out. He took the realistic base from the first three "Dirty Harry" films and replaced it with some type of pseudo surrealistic parody that seemed so repulsive it bordered on bad taste to say the very least. However, after repeated viewing it started to grow on me and I actually wanted to watch over and over. I couldn't get enough of it. It certainly was not the same Dirty Harry but it had a very blunt approach for dealing with crime and criminals. In the first three films the bureaucrats constantly accused Harry of crossing the line yet the audience knew Harry was right and the bureaucrats were just a bunch of crybaby liberals (at least that's what the directors wanted us to think). In SUDDEN IMPACT Clint Eastwood is at the helm. Eastwood proposes a question to the audience: You like crazy? Do you want to see crazy? I'm going to give you crazy. Filmmaking is a business and like a good businessman Eastwood gives his audience what they want. Yet Eastwood is no fool. Without artistic merit this film would have been a failure. Eastwood is playing the auteur filmmaker here and he is very successful at it. This film is way ahead of its time. The fabric of a sane society is being pulled apart. Family values, if you like, are out the window. Eastwood collects the most vile, repugnant and repulsive villains for this film that literally defines the meaning of trailer trash. The Mafia hoodlums at the beginning of the film look like impotent choirboys compared to the bunch of wacko amusement park crazies he ends up exterminating by the film's end. If Eastwood had not directed this film with his offbeat humor and unconventional style, if he had played it as a straight drama, the critics would have screamed murder. This is a good film. It's a stand-alone modern day apocalyptic tale delivered for your approval by Dirty Harry. I can still remember Reni Santoni asking, "Why do they call you Dirty Harry?" Now we really know.

"Sudden Impact" brought one of my favorite icons from the 70's movie world back to the big screen "Dirty Harry Callahan"! This is the forth installment in the series and the best of the sequels to this point! It is a great film for many reasons, one is it has a nice blend of action and self parody. The scenes when Harry goes in the coffee shop that is being robbed and when he chases the bank robber in the retirement bus are certainly done with a little humor in mind. Since there is around 8 years between this and the last sequel it is obvious that Callahan has aged some, but not mellowed! This film is the first film that Clint coined the phrase " Go a head...Make My Day!" Harry can't seem to get through a day without being reamed by his superiors for his methods of keeping our streets safe! The film also has some really nasty, but convincing villains in a bull dyke named Ray(Audrie Neena)and a murderer/rapist/psycho named Mick(Paul Drake), but also I can't help but find it funny that Albert Popwell is in this installment again Lol! He has been in every movie playing a different character the banker robber he says "do you feel lucky" to(Dirty Harry),a pimp who uses Drano to kill one of his "girls(Magnum Force, an informant(The Enforcer) and now Harry's pal(Sudden Impact)! I know there are some who don't care for this film, but it's a very entertaining and smartly made movie! The DVD transfer looks very good.

We can differentiate at three main themes in this well-known and well-liked fourth Dirty Harry action film. First there is Dirty Harry himself played by Eastwood. He is an angry man, disrespectful, a loner, expert shot, master of short expressions such as “make my day,” and generally a dispassionate killer of criminals. He is an endangered species, a dinosaur, a man of the past-age who feels he should do whatever it takes to stop crime and punish criminals. He attracts fierce killers like a moth to a flame and has no qualms about killing them. “Everywhere you go,” a police chief complains, “someone gets smashed or gets killed.” Viewers of action films will enjoy his actions and reflect whether they think he is acting properly.
Second, there are the many incidences, each standing alone, where Harry faces people trying to kill him. These include men he humiliated and mobsters who seek revenge for Harry causing their leader to have a heart attack and how Harry stops a couple of different robberies.
Third, there is a woman who, along with her sister, was raped ten years ago, who is killing her rapists. Harry can’t understand why the police chief isn’t doing all he can do to investigate these murders and find who is committing them.
