After Harry Callahan (Eastwood) handles a liquor store holdup in his own no-nonsense way, he is transferred from Homicide to Personnel. His supervisors quickly want him back, though, after an arms warehouse is robbed by terrorists. Much to Harry
The anamorphically enhanced 2.39:1 DVD shows some improvement in resolution over the previous release, with fine details delivered nicely. Black levels are consistent, but slightly elevated, and shadow delineation is improved, helping create a more realistic, dimensional picture. Fleshtones are also improved, looking more natural than in the DVD reviewed in Issue 56, and contrast is also balanced better. Flecks of dirt can be noticed at times, but it is hardly a distraction, and edge enhancement is minor, almost to the point of being a non-issue. Color balance is improved significantly, looking not nearly as dated as in the previous DVD. Compression is also improved, with very few artifacts noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
