Once more, not much has changed since Callahan's deadly dose of justice in Dirty Harry , apart from his brand new. However, this time, a strange sense of admiration starts to develop. Now, each empty cartridge case he finds, it leads him to a dead scumbag, bringing Callahan one step closer to an empowered Jennifer. Will Harry put an end to Jennifer's reign of terror?
The years have passed since the Scorpio killer, a band of renegade cops, and a terrorist group were all up against one tough Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan Clint Eastwood , a new killer has now emerged and might prove to be Callahan's most dangerous enemy yet. From San Francisco to San Paulo, rape victim Jennifer Spencer Sondra Locke has turned into a cold-blooded vigilante killer and is out gunning down her attackers one by one. But right behind the bloody trail, is an aging, but still bitter Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan, who's not only a target of a crime syndicate for which he was sent away, but ends up being entangled between the killer's vengeful vendetta and irresistible lust.
This is Clint Eastwood's fourth Dirty Harry movie. In this movie, Harry's in hot water with his superiors when he induces a heart attack on a criminal on whom they have spent a great deal of time building a case, and some criminals are gunning for him.
Jannings admits that to protect his reputation and his only child, he "fixed" the crimes and failed to jail the guilty parties. He convinces Spencer to spare Alby's life and promises that Mick, whom he does not know is free, will now be punished.
Mick and the others, however, arrive and capture Spencer, killing Jannings with her. Callahan retrieves his AutoMag from the motel, having lost his long-barreled Model 29 in the ocean. Enraged at what Mick's gang have done to Horace and Meathead, he sets out after them. Mick's gang brings Spencer to the boardwalk for another rape, but she escapes to the carousel.
They recapture her, but are startled by Callahan's apparent return from the dead. The inspector reiterates his challenge of "make my day"—this time to Mick. When Mick laughs maniacally at Callahan, Spencer uses the diversion to break free.
Callahan shoots Mick, who plunges through the carousel's glass roof and is impaled on a carousel unicorn. The police arrive and find Spencer's. The screenplay was initially written by Charles B. Pierce and Earl E. The consensus reads: " Sudden Impact delivers all the firepower — and the most enduring catchphrase — fans associate with the Dirty Harry franchise, but it's far from the best film in the series. Vincent Canby criticized the film, stating "The screenplay is ridiculous, and Mr.
Eastwood's direction of it primitive, which is surprising because he has shown himself capable in such films as The Outlaw Josey Wales and The Gauntlet. Among other things, the movie never gets a firm hold on its own continuity. Sometimes scenes of simultaneous action appear to take place weeks or maybe months apart. Because of that they are lesser films. We never feel that Harry is in any real danger. True, Callahan's partner, played by Albert Popwell, is black, but he's around only briefly.
That it exploits with sleek cinematic skill—not to mention a great deal of righteousness—makes it all the more reprehensible. Sudden Impact is best remembered for Harry's catchphrase , " Go ahead, make my day ". United States President Ronald Reagan used the "make my day" line in a March speech threatening to veto legislation raising taxes. The film is recognized by American Film Institute in these lists:.
