A vicious serial-killer is on the loose in San Francisco and the police trace a link to the small town of San Paulo, which is further down the coast. When Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) upsets the press and the Mayor in his usual style, he's shipped out of town to investigate while the heat is on. With the help of his new .44 Magnum handgun, Harry goes on the trail leaving behind the usual trail of dead criminals along the way.Written by

Just like with the previous movies, the 5.1 DVD/Blu-ray remix replaces a bunch of sound effects (mostly gunshots) with more modern ones. However, in addition to that right before the carnival shootout at the end, originally when Harry was approaching the villains, the music had a very loud screeching sound, but the remix completely removes it. (but remains intact on the soundtrack and foreign mono tracks) See more »
Sudden Impact is the 4th of the Dirty Harry films and one of the best traits of these films is that they don't really degrade in quality from one film to the next. Thus, Sudden Impact provides another thrill ride through the life of Dirty Harry Callahan. This time Harry attempts to solve a series of murders while on vacation. Harry's always on the job it seems. Clint Eastwood plays Harry as he plays all his men of action, slow, deliberate, and without fear. As the first of the Dirty Harry films to be made in the 80's, Sudden Impact lacks a bit of the 70's feel that characterizes the first three films. This doesn't mean that it's quality is any less. Bottom Line: Brimming with intensity and action, Sudden Impact is another worthy addition to the Dirty Harry series.
