Review

Our Score
Although mercifully brief and nowhere near as doggedly eager to please as Turner & Hooch or K-9, this competent quota quickie from Derek Twist is, in all honesty, "mutt ado about nothing". In one of his few movie excursions, Tim Turner plays a bobby who adopts an alsatian stray and has reason to break out the Bonio when it helps him on the trail of his friend's murderer. It's hardly a baffling mystery even Scooby Doo would have sussed it! However, it's always nice to see class acts like John Le Mesurier and Christopher Lee, no matter how briefly.

Summary

London-based police officer Frank Mason decides to become a dog-handler when his partner is killed during a chase. As his new colleague begins to take over his life, Frank uses his newly acquired friend to help track down the murderer. Thriller, starring Joan Rice, Tim Turner, Sandra Dorne and Charles Victor.
