Nicely Filmed, But TV Series Kojak Was More Fun To Watch
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a full-length movie featuring the television series star "Kojak," played by Telly Savalas. He made the fictional New York city detective a pretty famous person. This movie came later but the lollipop-sucking "who loves ya, baby?" wise-cracking cop was not that in this movie. His partner, "Crocker" wasn't in here, either, and his boss "Frank" only made an appearance at the end. All of that didn't make this as attractive a film as it should have been. Also, at least for me, I didn't find the deep raspy-voiced overdone eye make-upped Suzanne Pleshette to be an attractive female lead. Almost any other woman would have been this more tolerable to watch.

Despite all of the above, Salavas and the story were still pretty entertaining and the movie was filmed nicely, meaning nice photography, better than the TV series and a big cut above most made-for-TV movies. That, and some dramatic music, helped make this worth watching. However, it's not worth keeping. If you like Kojak, you're better off waiting for the TV series to come out on DVD. The first season was issued, but where's the rest?
