BREACH OF FAITH, the second in the FAMILY OF COPS trilogy, is a terrible film. The plot is the same old nonsense about the Russian mafia and it exudes a terrible TV movie atmosphere where everything is played safe and there are no surprises around any of the corners.
Even worse, I was watching this for Charles Bronson alone - what other reason is there? - and he's given even less to do than in the first movie. He takes a back seat to the members of his other family, who aren't interesting in the least, and in his few scenes he seems elderly, doddering across the screen, mumbling his barely coherent lines. You feel sorry for him, remembering what once was.
Even a briefly rousing climax can't lift what's come before, and BREACH OF FAITH is utterly without merit. I can't say I'm looking forward to the final part of the trilogy...
