To me, 70s films feel faster paced than those that preceded that decade. The stories are also grittier in that there is not so much of a "good guy V bad guy" theme, but a recognition that good guys aren't always that good. Harry Callahan is the prime example but even in small personal dramas nothing is ever perfect and the character who is triumphant at the conclusion may be celebrating a Pyrrhic victory.

This helped audiences, I think, identify with the characters as they could see their own flaws replicated on the silver screen.
