MAGNUM FORCE: Style & Technique 3. The Pace

(1/2) > >>

How well-paced do you find Magnum Force? Does it hold your interest throughout? Does it seem to rush or lag at times? Are there any particular scenes that you think stand out as especially crisply paced or dragging?

Overall, the pace here is good. Magnum Force is the longest running Dirty Harry movie, but it moves along well. Of course, it's only a little over two hours.

The pace never slows in my opinion.  I love how every scene nearly seg-ways into another.  Very smooth.  Love the pace when Callahan pulls up with Early when Briggs is on the scene in the opening.  It a movie that makes you sit there and say, What the hells going to happen next...
