San Francisco Police Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) and his new partner, Earlington "Early" Smith (Felton Perry) have been temporarily reassigned from Homicide to Stakeout Duty.

Callahan begins to investigate the murders despite orders from his superior officer, Lieutenant Neil Briggs (Hal Holbrook). A man has to know his limitations.

Short Review

The dialog is as uninspired as the plot but the stunt and chase sequences are up to par for this sort of thing. The action is fast, brutal and bloody.
