Client Eastwood returns again on Blu-Ray, however this time it
involves the third installment of the "Dirty Harry" series as
Detective Harry Callaghan as his partner Kate (Tyne Daly) get
caught in a war with a terrorist underground group who kidnap the
Mayor of San Francisco and once again it is up to Dirty Harry with
his unique and rough methods of justice to save the day. Although
not the strongest films in the series, The Enforcer is quite action
driven and at times, the plot is rather slow to move, however what
saves the day in the film is Clint Eastwood who was born for this
The relationship between Harry and Kate seems forced at times, even
though there is a few moments between the two and some interesting
side plots such as Callaghan's superiors finally questioning his
methods of justice. There is also a great one-liner from Eastwood
regarding his new partner's capabilities which still brought a smile
to my face. What makes this movie so impressive is the video and
audio transfer that has been digitally re-mastered for Blu-Ray and
looks and sounds exceptional.
For a film that is over 30 years old, you will definitely appreciate
the digital re-mastering as the picture quality is quite sharp as
are the colours of the movie. The Dolby Digital TrueHD 5.1 audio track is
and the Dirty Harry series has probably never sounded better than
this edition of the movie.
The extras of The Enforcer features an
in-depth commentary by director James Fargo, a featurette entitled
"The Business End: Violence in Cinema" which looks at violence
through the history of motion pictures, trailers and also some
galleries which look quite impressive on this media format.
not the greatest Dirty Harry movie, The Enforcer has its moments and
will definitely find a new audience due to its digitally re-mastered
nature and original fans will also jump on this bandwagon.
Dirty Harry is back!
