The Enforcer is the ...By loz#6 from BRISTOL , 11 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The Enforcer is the third in the Dirty Harry series, and the downward trend continues. While Magnum Force was no classic it did at least have an interesting take on Harry's vigelante methods, but storywise The Enforcer is completely lacking in original ideas. All the plot elements are over-familiar from the previous two films - Harry going against the rules to get the bad guy, Harry getting told off by his sueriors and told he's off the case, Harry getting a new partner whom he initially thinks is incompetent but grows to respect, blah blah blah. The bad guys are also very second rate, and the story lacks any of the moral ambiguity that made the first two films interesting.
The films saving grace is that it's actually very amusing. Eastwood puts in a storming performance and has more hilarious one-liners than ever before, while the B-movie acting of the minor characters is so poor that much unintentional comedy ensues.
The Enforcer is entirely lacking in dramatic impact and could never be classed as a 'good' film, but taken as a light-hearted parody of the original Dirty Harry it is at least amusing and entertaining viewing.

Classic HarryBy Dorsetdiver (1 review) , 08 Feb 2013Classic Dirty Harry Eastwood serves up the cutting non- PC one liners we've come to expect from him. He deals out justice in his own no nonsense unique style. Its classic Harry from the street views of San Francisco to the Oakland Bay bridge. Rent this movie on Blu Ray and you wont be disappointed. Its easy watching and will bring a smile to your face. Sit back relax and enjoy.
The EnforcerBy Jezza999 (2 reviews) from West Byfleet , 27 Jan 2012Excellent suspense thriller. Great storey line and plot and keeps you at the edge of your seat. Surprise ending as well. Very good acting by all mane players. One to add to your list.
5 dollars she'll put on a show... with a shetland pony...By Ricki-Oh (2 reviews) , 14 Jul 2011Clint talking through his teeth; awesome twangy 70s music while in pursuit of a bad dude; classic lines:
'Where are headed little lady?'
'Nowhere with you numb-nuts, buzz off!'
Run, you jive-talkin' b***ard!
to name a few...
It's just one of those films that when the credits roll you say '*humph* something missing there'.
Not as good as Magnum ForceBy Bassman71 (630 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 09 Nov 2010'People's' terrorist group terrorise San Francisco, kidnap people, want ransom, Harry Callahan's partner killed, gets new female partner, gets suspended, gets reinstated, Do ya feel lucky, well do ya punk?
Third film in the Dirty Harry series which follows a lot of trends of the time with stronger language, more violence & stereotypes galore.
Eastwood plays Callahan as his 'my way or the highway' style & constantly getting up the noses of his superiors but he does look bored about half way through.
Story this time isn't as strong or as entertaining as Magnum Force & maybe this was where the series started to descend.
