Quality installment to good Bronson series.
19 January 1999 | by (Conway, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

This may be the best of the 3 Family of Cops movies. The story is very good, and Charles Bronson shows a sense of humor. I wish that Angela Featherstone would have returned as his daughter, but that is a minor complaint. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a solid mystery.
