The "Family of Cops" television trilogy was the only TV-movie series that Charles Bronson ever appeared in (he had his own weekly TV series, Man with a Camera (1958), in 1958. His "Death Wish" series were theatrical films, not made-for-TV films). See more »
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.
