AN EXCELLENT BRONSON COP THRILLER
4 September 2018 | by lukem-52760See all my reviews

Another excellent Bronson cop thriller & yes it may be a t.v movie but IT'S still an exciting crime thriller!!! Bronson is always great & he's one of my favourite actors & i love most of his movies especially the excellent Death Wish franchise. Here the great screen presence of Bronson is in t.v production & later he did the Excellent family of cops trilogy all t.v flicks but it doesn't take away from the quality & feel of the movie & Donato and daughter is a quality suspense cop thriller with another excellent performance by Bronson as a tough old timer cop who gets tangled up working with his daughter who is also a cop played excellently by Dana Delany she's a really good actress works perfectly With Bronson!!! There is a very sick killer committing horrendous crimes even to nuns & basically it's father & daughter team of cops to track this evil killer down,so it's basic cop thriller territory but done really well with a creepy atmosphere & a really good music score & that is so important in a detective Thriller to score the mood right & create an atmosphere & this excellent little cop film does that perfectly. I really enjoyed this film it was edgy & dark without showing all the gore,it had the mood & fear factor just right & the family drama was done really well with the donato's & you actually care about these characters & really want the sick killer caught or executed!!! So yes another great Bronson film, a great cop thriller & an excellent performance by the legendary Bronson.
