Harmless British "B" family film best viewed by dog lovers and fans of Chris Lee.
21 July 2001 | by youroldpaljimSee all my reviews

Two British foot patrolmen pursue a burglary suspect and one ends up shot to death by the suspect. Patrolman Frank vows to catch the killer. His superior suggests that foot patrolman be accompanied by dogs to provide them with protection and aid them in the pursuit of suspects. So constable Frank takes in a stray dog and trains him to be a police dog. The new dog proves to be an great asset and aids Frank in the capture of the cop killer and save Franks life. I suppose if I wanted to sound clever, I would call this a "dog of a movie." In fairness, POLICE DOG is a harmless "B" family film. The film has some plot contrivances such as having officer Frank's girlfriend jealous because Frank is spending to much time with his new dog instead of her. Also the killer is pretty stupid. He returns to the same neighborhood where he committed the murder to rob again only to recognized by officer Frank. You would think he would pick another part of town to rob.

Christopher Lee has a small part as a police officer who does not like dogs. The dog of the title is billed as "Rex III." I suppose that means the "Rex" in this film is grandson of "Rex-The Wonder Dog" who starred in western movies and serials in the 1930's.
