Magnum Force ★★½ 1973 (R)

Eastwood's second “Dirty Harry” movie. Harry finds a trail leading from a series of gangland killings straight back to the P.D. Less gripping than “Dirty Harry” (1971), but still effective. Holbrook is cast intriguingly against type. 124m/C VHS, DVD . Clint Eastwood, Hal Holbrook, Mitchell Ryan, David Soul, Robert Urich, Tim Matheson, Kip Niven, Albert “Poppy” Popwell; D: Ted Post; W: Michael Cimino, John Milius; C: Frank Stanley; M: Lalo Schifrin.
