Clint Eastwood returns to his popular Dirty Harry character and directs himself in the role for the first time. The film starts with Harry leaving San Francisco at his superiors’ insistence and going to a small seaside town for a little peace and quiet.

She and her sister were raped by a group of local men, including the police chief’s son, a few years back.

Sudden Impact is a disturbing film in which Eastwood examines the darker aspects of Dirty Harry and comes up with a brooding, grim drama that has a hauntingly ambiguous ending. Read More »
