An excellent movie
7 June 2001 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

Sometimes movies made for TV, like this one, are by far much better than movies made for theaters. A Father's Revenge is a fantastic thriller and Brian Dennehy is a marvelous actor. For years I have been trying to buy this movie with no success. If you ever have the opportunity to see this marvelous film, don't miss it!
