A Father's Revenge

John Herzfeld (1987)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Brian Dennehy can bring life to the most routine script and it's his presence that lifts this otherwise ordinary thriller. Frustrated at the lack of action taken by the authorities when his daughter is held hostage by terrorists, Dennehy decides to take the law into his own hands and recruits professional help to rescue her. There's solid enough support from Joanna Cassidy, Ron Silver and British actor Anthony Valentine, but sadly the script and the direction lack real punch.


A man hires a band of mercenaries to rescue his air stewardess daughter, who has been kidnapped by international terrorists. Thriller, starring Brian Dennehy, Joanna Cassidy, Anthony Valentine and Ron Silver.
