I'd put The Gauntlet over all the Dirty Harry movies except the first one.
I'd put Tight Rope over all of them except the first two.
I'd put those behind the first 3 but ahead of the last 2.

It’s pretty close between The Gauntlet and Magnum Force. For sure I’d put The Gauntlet over the last 3 Dirty Harry flicks. And it’s an even tighter one between Tight Rope and The Enforcer.
No to me Magnum Force is closer to Dirty Harry than The Gauntlet. The Gauntlet has too much of a slapstick feel with that motorcycle gang who look like they belong in Every Which Way But Loose. Magnum Force has the vibe and atmosphere of the first film, with another great score from Lalo Schifrin. You've got Hal Holbrook as Lt. Briggs, David Soul, Robert Urich, Tim Matheson and Kip Niven who are great as the weird rookie vigilante killers and most all Clint is playing Harry Callahan, and he's not in The Gauntlet. And a big bonus, there's no Sondra Locke!

And I prefer The Enforcer over The Gauntlet too, it's closer though but still a clear win.

I see that it’s mainly your hatred of Sondra Locke :lol: . I’m no fan of hers but she didn’t hinder the goodness of The Gauntlet or the greatness of Outlaw Josey Wales

Nah she's just an extra reason that it can't match the first three Dirty Harry films. Another thing is when I watch it I do almost think it's a Dirty Harry film, in fact for a few years I thought that this was Sudden Impact, obviously I wasn't paying attention, and I always end up disappointed when the character doesn't act as tough as Harry.

Both are definitely better than Sudden Impact.

Yeah for sure. And so is Tightrope. And ALL of them are better than The Dead Pool, even The Rookie is better than The Dead Pool.

You know what’s also good is the pre-Dirty Harry prototype - Coogan’s Bluff. To me that’s in the Tight Rope/Enforcer zone of goodness

I like “The Gaunlet” and “Tightrope”...and put “The Gaunlet” in fourth place ahead of “Sudden Impact”.

“Tightrope” would be in between “Sudden Impact” and “The Dead Pool”.

One of my favs is “Escape From Alcatraz”.

I quite like “Heartbreak Ridge” as well.

I’ll add some of his classic Universal movies like Play Misty For Me, High Plains Drifter and Eiger Sanction.

I didn't like this movie when I first watched it. I watched it again a while back and I loved it. One of Clint's best Westerns.

Yup, another great Clint movie. 9 years after Outlaw Josey Wales and 7 years before Unforgiven.

Yeah and that guy is in it who was in Joe Kidd, as a cocky bastard who's out of his league. Actually he plays the same kind of guy in each one.

Van Halen should've titled their song 'Dirty Harry Movies' instead of 'Dirty Movies' from the Fair Warning album.
