I just watched this movie on my Home Entertainment system and it was cool. It isn't as good as "Dirty Harry", but I really enjoyed the first
sequel. Because you take a guy (Dirty Harry) who hates "wrong-doers" period, even cops.
I felt the movie was a good follow-up, and featured a great cast (Eastwood and Hal Holbrook). It had a great storyline and great action and like the
first movie. Having Lt. Briggs be the evil cop was good, but I'm sure many could see it coming when Briggs went "Everyman is gulity . . ."
Of course, many felt Harry was more mellow in this one. I don't know, uses Brigg's explosive device on Briggs was kind of hardcore. I mean, only
Harry would expect a "so-called do-gooder" like Briggs to try to blame Harry for all the deaths, instead of shooting Harry. Harry's gamble was
right. Which is why it went from " a good man always knows his limitations" to "a man's got to know his limitations". Kind of like the subtext in
the first Movie when you compare the "44 Magnum" dialogue with the bank robber and the Scorpio Killer. So I wouldn't call Harry mellow at all.
Quite possibly the smarkest man alive... no wait, that's TCB.
