The second Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force concerns itself with a vigilante motorcycle cop group that has targeted notorious criminals for extermination. When a prominent gang boss or drug-runner is set free by the airheaded liberal courts, a covert group of cop “avengers” is soon on hand to blow the miscreant to bits. While detective Dirty Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) is no great friend of civil liberties, he is dead set against wholesale murder as a solution to legal loopholes.

But the answer is less transparent than that, as Harry learns almost at the cost of his own life.
