Dirty Harry, A Female Partner & Lots of Humour
The shootouts, chases and explosions in this, the third "Dirty Harry film", are enough to satisfy any action movie fan but what makes "The Enforcer" different to its predecessors is its humour. A number of sharp one-liners and the outrageous methods employed by Detective Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) provide a lot of laughs but additionally, his interactions with his new female partner and his incompetent superiors create a whole series of other situations which are also great fun to watch.Harry, of course, is a walking anachronism and a male chauvinist and these qualities often get him into trouble. He does, however, have a recognised talent for dealing with some very challenging cases in a particularly forceful way and it's this ability that frequently enables him to extricate himself from the difficulties that his behaviour leads him into.When Callahan and his partner Detective Inspector Frank DiGiorgio (John Mitchum) arrive at a liquor store robbery where the gunmen have taken hostages and demanded a car, Callahan simply gets into his police vehicle and drives it at great speed through the store-front windows before shooting and killing all the robbers. His quick, simple and effective way of dealing with this dangerous situation isn't appreciated by his superiors who promptly transfer him from the homicide division to the personnel department.In his new role, Callahan takes part in a series of interviews with candidates who are being considered for promotion to inspector and openly shows his disgust at the imposition of quotas to ensure that a requisite number of women are appointed to these posts. In one interview with a candidate called Kate Moore (Tyne Daly), his questions reveal that she's spent all her career doing office work and has no experience in the field and has never even made an arrest. Callahan's scepticism about promoting people with no proof of their competence in the field leads to him being branded a Neanderthal and his concern about their safety on the streets is also summarily dismissed.After DiGiorgio is killed attempting to arrest a group of terrorists who are in the process of stealing rocket launchers, explosives and a variety of other weapons from a munitions warehouse, Callahan is reassigned to homicide with a new partner, Detective Inspector Kate Moore. The way in which this unlikely partnership tracks down the terrorists who try to hold the city of San Francisco to ransom, surprisingly leads to them becoming friends before their mission reaches its action-packed climax at Alcatraz Island.It's interesting that in "Magnum Force" Callahan's attitude to vigilantism changed because of what happened in that story and similarly, in "The Enforcer", his experience of working with a woman who showed her competence and bravery, leads to a certain softening of his attitude to the idea of women working in the homicide division. With his eyes narrowed and his teeth clenched, Clint Eastwood again does a good job of showing Callahan's disdain for various types of people but it's in his scenes with Tyne Daly that he shows greater subtlety as Callahan's new partner gradually starts to win his respect and friendship.
It's a dirty business, but Clint Eastwood's up for another round
At this point, Harry Callahan's little more than a barnacle clinging to the SFPD. Yeah, he gets the job done, but how he stays on the force is a miracle. What's funny about it is how quick he is to tell his superiors to kiss off. "The Enforcer" doesn't have time to dwell on such matters, pitting him against both a group of militants and the horrors of Affirmative Action. This is a decent entry into the series mostly because of Eastwood's scenes with mandated partner Tyne Daly. If you enjoy seeing what Callahan will do next, be it the creative to solution to a hostage scenario, or taking his anger out with a rocket launcher, then this is ideal product. What's disappointing is that Daly's pluck is wasted as she's dispatched to the murky fog that is Harry's former partners. Like "Magnum Force", this isn't a patch on the original movie (will any of the sequels compare?), but it's Dirty Harry doing what he does.6/10
The 3rd Film of the "Dirty Harry" Series
In this 3rd "Dirty Harry" film, San Francisco Inspector "Harry Callahan" (Clint Eastwood) is tasked with an assignment involving the theft of military arms by persons unknown. As bad as that might be, the theft also resulted in the death of Callahan's partner "Frank Digeorgio" (John Mitchum) as well. Not only that, but it's also during this time that Harry is informed that he must accept a brand new partner who happens to be an inexperienced female named "Kate Moore" (Tyne Daly). Needless to say, this doesn't please Inspector Callahan at all but these types of politics are nothing new to him. In any case, as the investigation unwinds it soon becomes clear that the group that stole the weapons is supposedly a small terrorist organization with plans to start a revolution using the weapons they have just obtained. In reality, however, the leader "Bobby Maxwell" (DeVeren Bookwalter) is actually in it for the money and is using some of the more ideological members of the group for his own selfish ends. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a decent addition to the "Dirty Harry" series with Clint Eastwood performing in his usual high-level capacity. On the flip side, however, I didn't much care for the selection of Tyne Daly for the role of his partner as there didn't seem to be much chemistry between the two. Be that as it may, I liked this film for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
