Our Score
The title has huge comic possibilities: imagine arguments over who does the washing up ending in shoot-outs and multiple arrests. Sadly, though, this is a straight-faced, rather dreary thriller about, er, a family of cops who get mixed up in skulduggery and murder. Charles Bronson (on stone-faced autopilot) is the patriarch who rallies the clan when his youngest daughter (Angela Featherstone) is charged with the murder of a wealthy businessman. Despite a stellar supporting cast (Lesley-Anne Down, Daniel Baldwin, Simon MacCorkindale), it's an uninspired affair and the direction from the usually reliable Ted Kotcheff - he directed Sylvester Stallone to success in First Blood - is pedestrian.

Summary

A maverick officer forms his own family police squad with his two sons in an attempt to discover who framed his daughter for murder. Drama, starring Charles Bronson, Lesley-Anne Down, Simon MacCorkindale, Daniel Baldwin and Angela Featherstone.
