5-0 out of 5 stars THANK GOD IT FINALLY MADE ITS WAY TO DVD!!!
This is one the best (and most profitable) of all of Clint Eastwoods movies. It has everything, comedy (Ruth Gordon alone is worth the price) action, a great soundtrack, and yes Clyde the Orangutan, But never let this be seen as just a "Guy with an Ape" movie, that would really do it an injustice, it has SO much more to offer than that. An absolutely great movie. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars One of Clint Eastwood's most successful films!!!!
Like "Smokey & the Bandit" before it, this movie had the same kind of charm, & despite being set in Los Angeles, it had a down home southern feel to it, offered to Clint to give to his pal Burt Reynolds, Clint liked it so much he asked Burt why he should do it, Reynolds told him to do one, & like "Bandit" did for Reynolds, this one did for Eastwood, who stars as Filo Beddoe, a truck driver who falls for a local singer in a nearby bar only to discover that she has a questionable past, this is pretty much the plot that has a series of running gags where Filo pals around with an ape known as Clyde who basically steals the movie as does Ruth Gordon as Filo's mother who constantly curses Clyde, Filo's run-in with a local motorcycle gang is funny to watch as the leader has a look on his face as to how he ended up with such misfits, as Filo searches for love he encounters all kinds of misfits, in addition to the gang, he runs afoul two idiot cops, & bar room brawlers, a fun movie that was a change of pace for Eastwood, & featured his then-girlfriend Sondra Locke who has a secret all her own, if you liked "Smokey & the Bandit", you will love this one!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Film. Ape Death Story Is Bogus
Fantastic film which represents a by-gone era in films. The films of the 1970's were simply better because while Hollywood was still interested in making a buck, they still wanted to make good films. Now it's all about the buck, who cares if it's good as long as it turns a profit. Pick this one up and keep it in your library as a monolith of better times gone by.

By the way, it is my understanding the original Clyde died of natural causes. The "donut beating" story has been circulated by the PETA Extremists for their hate filled fodder.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Film and it works in my Region 2 players!!!!
One line to sum the film up - "This film is a classic"

I have been waiting to get it for ages, and I finally bought a Multi Region player (We have 3 Region players as well). The film arrived, I watched it - and then decided to try it on the other players - and to my amazment it worked. I tried Any Which You Can in the Region 2 players as well and it worked.

I got another R1 DVD and that didnt, so I guess its a one off of this DVD.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor "Clyde"
Interesting that none of these reviews mentions the fact that Clyde (who was named Buddha by his trainers) was beaten so severely (for stealing doughnuts on the set) by his trainers that he died of brain hemorrhage. They replaced him, quietly, for the sequal. Primates are brutally dominated by their trainers in order to do the smallest actions (like smiling, which is a sign or fear in the wild). It isn't entertaining, it's cruel. Don't spend money on films that exploit animals. Grow up. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Welcome, Tonto
This is the third of five "Dirty Harry" films in which Eastwood stars as a San Francisco police detective. By the time the last appeared (The Dead Pool, in 1988), Eastwood had aged and times had changed but Callahan's non-negotiaable values and unorthodox methods had remained essentially the same. What I find especially interesting in this film is the relationship which develops between Callahan and his partner Kate Moore, skillfully portrayed by Tyne Daly. Until now, Callahan has indeed been a "lone ranger," alienated (by choice or circumstance) from his superiors and fellow officers as well as from the criminals whom he pursues with deadly efficiency. Over time, Moore eventually earns Callahan's respect and trust (albeit grudgingly) as they attempt to rescue San Francisco's kidnapped mayor (John Crawford) amidst all manner of mayhem unrelated to that assignment. Credit James Fargo with keeping the narrative flowing smoothly. The supporting cast is solid, notably Bradford Dillman (Captain McKay) and Harry Guardino (Lieutenant Bressler). There is plenty of action, of course, skillfully presented. Despite its lack of much subtlety or nuance, I recommend it to those with a taste for this sort of urban adventure film. Those who enjoy it should also check out Coogan's Bluff and Bullitt (both 1968) as well as The Gauntlet (1977).

4-0 out of 5 stars Another fine example of why they call him 'Dirty' Harry.
A group of thugs passing themselves off as The People's Revolutionary Army (or something like that) grab a stockpile of weapons and ammunition, killing Harry Callahan's friend and partner in the process. Callahan's new partner is a woman, something he does not particularly agree with, and she can barely keep up as Inspector #71 tears through San Francisco looking for the PRA. The Enforcer (Dirty Harry #3) lacks the grit and energy of the first Dirty Harry and the excessive bullet riddled body count of the second (Magnum Force). In comparison it almost seems sedate, both visually and in terms of its action content. What the movie does offer is a solid, if a bit routine, police action thriller story made better than average by its script. Harry's deathbed visit to the fading Frank DiGiorgio and his snappy relationship with rookie Inspector Kate Moore are both well done. On the action side of things, fans will no doubt enjoy Harry's unique handling of a hostage situation, a foot chase across San Francisco's rooftops, and the kidnapping of The Mayor. Recommended.

Trivia - This is the only film in the series not scored by Lalo Schifrin. He was unavailable at the time. Harry Guardino returns as Lt. Bressler from the first Dirty Harry and Bradford Dillman (playing Captain McKay here) would return as Captain Briggs in the fourth Dirty Harry, Sudden Impact. Albert Popwell makes his third of four Dirty Harry appearances. In the first Harry adventure he is the wounded bankrobber on the receiving end of Harry's famous "Do you feel lucky?" speech. In the second he plays a murderous pimp who gets more than a simple traffic stop. Here is a black militant who agrees to help Harry, for a price. In the fourth he got to play Harry's friend and partner...uh-oh. Sadly he is absent in The Dead Pool.

4-0 out of 5 stars "Power to the People"
THE ENFORCER is the third entry to the Dirty Harry series. While a good perforance by Eastwood overall, the movie does not quite match up to the Don Siegel-directed original or MAGNUM FORCE, (which I consider his best movie). While THE ENFORCER is not the weakest Dirty Harry movie, it does have the weakest plot. Here Dirty Harry has to save the city of San Fancisco from a group of rebellious punks who are obsessed with heavy artiliary. They call themselves the People's Revolutionary Strike Force, and they are led by Bobby Maxwell, a deranged Vietnam Vet who wants to terrorize the public in exchange for ransom. After slaughtering 2 gas company employees, they break into an artility warehouse to steal the goods. Harry's partner, DeGeorgio arrives on the scene and is killed in the process. While trying to try down DeGeorgio's killer, Harry is assigned a new parter in the form of Kate Moore, (Tyne Daly), a yacking half-pint who wants to impress him in every way possible. Harry doesn't quite agree with the plan, especially when she is on the force just to coincide with the mayor's plans to be "stylish." But Moore turns out to be more valuable then he ever imagined, helping lead him to Maxwell, and saving his life twice along the way.

Of all the Dirty Harry films, this one has the most humor. The comments that Callahan makes at the personel review of Moore are hilarious. We also have him driving a car through a liquor store, (continuing with the traditon of breaking up a robbery). Another funny sequence is when he chases Henry Lee Coldwell halfway across the city and back! He follows him over fences, across rooftops, and through skylights, disturbing a porn shooting in the process! Jerry Fielding took over the musical score here, and as a result, the traditional Dirty Harry theme is nowhere to be found. This is rather disappointing and takes away from the movie's serious potential. Fielding's jazzy them is effective during the chase sequence however. These film does suffer from long sequences that really aren't neccessary. The one that will really make you laugh is when Callahan enters a brothel posing as "Larry Dickman!" Dirty Harry regular, Albert Popwell, shows up here as a leader of a black militant group.

The Revolutionary Strike Force eventually switches gears by kidnapping the mayor for even more ransom. Harry is eventually is led to Alcatraz Island, where the mayor is being held captive. The climax on Alcatraz is exciting, but I wish it didn't unfold so fast. The ending is very sad, although I will not give that away. While THE ENFORCER is not up to par with the first two movies in the series, it is still a solid chapter in the book of Dirty Harry. "Power to the People."

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Film, But Questionable Message
In this interesting Dirty Harry film, Harry and company duel with a weird group of "revolutionaries." While the plot and characterization are compelling, the scenario gives rise to some questions.

How come Dirty Harry never paused from his pursuit of these terrorists, and asked himself, "Why do they hate us?" Harry seemed determined simply to wipe out these terrorists, in a unilateral fashion, as a cowboy would do. He never considered forming a coalition, or dispatching inspectors to monitor the activities of the group -- there was absolutely no mention of the United Nations. Dirty Harry, in his dealings with these terrorists, was at no time compassionate, tolerant, diverse or inclusive. He just seemed to think that killing them was the only way to stop them (which, indicentally, it WAS -- but that's beside the point). Harry did not at any time take into account any specific cultural or religious motivations which might have prompted the terrorists to kill people, and he seemed to have no regard whatever for their feelings.

Shouldn't Harry have been more sensitive, diverse, tolerant, inclusive and compassionate? Isn't that the best way, according to about half the people who participated in a national survey conducted November 2000, to deal with terrorists who want to wipe you out?

4-0 out of 5 stars It has a certain sense of style.
While not as entertaining as the original Dirty Harry, (what could be?) The Enforcer for me was the reason you went to see Rated R Movies in the first place, violence, dirty language, a touch of skin and oh yeah, violence, whether Harry is driving a car through a store window or chasing a perp across the rooftops of San Francisco, the Enforcer doesn't disappoint. Tyne Daly puts in a solid performance as Harry's uncertain yet unwavering partner who gains not only her own confidence as the story devellops, but his as well. The enforcer also anticipates political correctness almost twenty years before that plague decended on us all. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars High Kicks in Hong-Kong
This movie is about A Mob War in Hong-Kong,Chuck Norris helps
his Boss who is not a Mobster and avenges their Death!
No,not your classical Chop Socky stuff,in this pre-1997 retrocession Hong-Kong, the Magic of Chuck Norris' Karate operates on us!
The Fight scene on a Neon-Lit staircase is the climax of this great Movie!
It most definitely did not get the attention it deserved when it was released!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Short, hard hits
As like Star Wars, "older" movies don't have to be poor. Forced Vengeance is about much raw strength and nice evil characters. Real characters, not the usual martial arts actors of the nineties. It's great. For the story read one of the other reviews.
I want to comment the "style". The opening scene, where only Norris Silhouette fights a thug, plus the music, make up a kind of message, like "The weapon is brutal and hits hard". Later, the same scene is shown in original speed, while the opening shows it very slow. I prefer the slow, because to see what damage the opponent takes when hit. The first mid of the eighties had this cool hardstyle, like Asia mission and this one, while the later half came up with kid-amazing stuff like Karate Kid and Karate Warrior, where a teenie or a van-damme-lookalike learns how to fight. But the other style, like Forced Vengeance, shows no one learning and becoming a super hero. It shows a dude with an iron fist, nothing more or less. So, the fights here are not dozens of minutes but a few hard hits. And to see, how these hits work, give it a brutal flavor. The colors in the movie are sometimes neon lights, sometimes a very hard contrast to blood (like on the boat where Norris fights Raymondy. Some people say, fighting movies are lacking of story, then again, other ones say, it needs more fights, when there's too much dialogue. Forced Vengeance is about 60% dialogue and 40% fights / violence. I would say it is pretty good. Plus Joy is a cutie. Plus it has good music. Plus the letter characters for the cast are really stylish (note that in the making of a film even the fonts have to be chosen). Chuck Norris is not there to make a good movie actor but to hit damn hard, and he does HEHE. If you expect this movie to be filled with nothing than fighting scenes, you will be disappointed. It includes stunt-alike short-fights which are damn great, and the places and characters as well as the storyline would make a made a cool 80'ies film, and today, they would make a perfect action videogame. I pray it will come out on DVD. Including the german dub :-) The last scenes show some fight scene punches and kicks, and again, if you see it, the only thing in your mind will be: "Woah, ouch! That was a damn hard hit..."

3-0 out of 5 stars A routine revenge thriller.
Chuck Norris is a debt collector for a small, yet profitable Hong Kong gambling house.When his employer (and good friend) is assasinated by gang muscle, he goes on the war path, kicking in the teeth of all who get in his way as he hunts down those responsible.

Forced Vengeance is a standard issue action/revenge thriller.Director James Fargo (The Enforcer, 1976) shows very little growth as a director, although I'll grant that the neon backlit fight scene is an attempt at style that almost works.Action star Norris was a film or two away from becoming truly comfortable in front of the camera, so his performance is pretty stiff, but he remains a likable presence.The movie appears to be shot in the widescreen (2:35:1 ratio), so a letterboxed DVD edition would be a nice gift for Norris buffs such as myself.Anyone at MGM/UA listening?

5-0 out of 5 stars forcred vengeance
good acting and fight scenes make this one movies best in the actors long career.Chuck Norris is the all around supreme fighter even when he is out of the tournament scene. This film has not been rivaled since then.

2-0 out of 5 stars A must for Norris fans.
The fight in front of the neon sign is the best and most famous part of this otherwise less-than-mediocre movie. Norris' lack of acting skill really shines, but then that's not why you watch a Chuck Norris movie is it? It's worth watching some night on cable if only for the aforementioned neon sign fight and the "I'm gonna break your face!" scene. ... Read more
