Death Wish 5, all is forgiven.

"As a big Bronson fan I don't know what to think of these "Family Of Cops" TV movies. Did they really HAVE to make three ?. I don't think they had to, but unfortunately they made them anyway. The first one was o.k., and more than enough, but three is stretching it too far. -The old copper he portrays here is simply not interesting enough. Personally, I'd much rather have liked to see Bronson play two other final characters in two other final movies, than have this dull cop come back twice. (The father/daughter-relationship between Bronson and Dana Delaney in the TV movie "Donato & Daughter" would've qualified a lot better as a series of TV movies, actually.) I'm afraid absolutely nothing of interest to most Bronson fans happen in this series, and it's a bit of a shame he chose to end his acting career with this dud and not with a bang. It's not that I mind Bronson doing a bit of serious drama and less action, especially at his age, but the combination doesn't work here. Also, the "F.O.C." movies suffer from the same problem many TV series and movies today face; they have too many characters, and not enough time to care about them."
Bronson's Final Bow

"Charles Bronson gives his final performance as Police Commissioner Paul Fein in this very good telefilm. It may not be the best movie, but Bronson gives it his best and goes out in style. Highly recommended for any Bronson fan."
Goodbye to 1 of the last great super stars!

"Ok I own up to this, I have a huge soft spot for this trilogy & while part 3 was Mr.Bronson's last screen appearance, it really holds up. If you watch this as many times as I have, you can see the supporting cast helping him along & I find that even more touching. Full frame film, no surprise as it was a TV movie.
Interesting enough story & fine performances by everyone involved.
So long to 1 of the all time movie greats. A touching finish to a magnificent career in films."
