"I only have one question: Why would White Supremecists be trying to blow up San Diego in the first place, and don't you think they would get more guys on it than an aging detective and a dog? What were the other cops doing, were they all on border patrol? Wouldn't it have made more sense to use an ethnic actor SOMEWHERE in the film about white supremecists? No, this movie instead shows you that an old white cop and a canine can solve racism and stop terrorists. Nothing about this picture was believeable. This is one of the worst movies ever made, all-time. I told my kids that they could never see it again, I don't want to damage them further. Skip it."
This is the definitive movie on the subject of police dogs

"Chuck Norris does it again people. The man can do no wrong. He takes such a stupid subject as a police dog movie, eats it and then craps out a police dog diamond. There's just too much to say about this movie. The characters are amazing, the script is beyond fantastic, the story has an awesome pace and is truly believable and the special effects and action sequences will blow your mind. Of course, there's also the Chuckster, ah Chuck with your wonderful beard and fantastic haircuit, you dazzle again. Chuck delivers his lines like a pro and his stunts are some of the best I've ever seen. There is almost nothing better in this world than putting on some Yanni and turning on a Chuck Norris movie like Top Dog and getting lost in the amazing world that Chuck Norris shapes for us. This is a must buy for any fan of fine film, it's definitely in the top 3 greatest movies of all time list."
Worst Movie Ever

"This movie should never have been made. Everyone that was a part of this movie wasted their time and effort. Chuck Norris is cool to watch and to do karate and stuff. He should star in a movie where all that happens is fighting. Watching grass grow is a better use of your time, than watching a movie about a police officer where his partner is a DOG. I saw this movie before.....it was called "Turner and Hooch." Chuck Norris needs to stick with his roles as fighting and not do any more family oriented movies such as this one. He is good at fighting and karate, and that is exactly what he should stick with."

"During the 90's the creators of the action genre sat in a boardroom and kicked some ideas around on how to spice up the film industry. With films the Death Ring dominating the market something new had to be done. Through months of deliberation they finally agreed upon the ultimate concept of joining man and beast together to take on a deadly crime syndicate. The first shot was Turner in Hooch with Tom Hanks followed by a slightly more entertaining James Belushi attempt called K-9. At this time Chuck Norris was at home trimming him mustache with a pair of hedge clippers when he thought "I could beat the tar out of Hanks and Belushi with both hands tied behind my mullet," so where's my cop-dog movies? He then roundhouse kicked his way into a star role in Top Dog, which he'd so sorely regret about a week into shooting.
Top Dog starts off with some hilariously bad acted white white supremacist as they plan to blow up San Diego. Why are they doing this? We haven't the slightest idea. Maybe it's because they didn't legalize the good stuff in that region yet and the Nazi's couldn't take it anymore. Whatever the case may be, super rouge cop Jake Wilder get's called upon for the case and is teamed up with a dog (who may have been responsible for writing the script as far as we're concerned). The dialogue and one liner dog jokes are something we'd hope to never experience again and thank the movie world for not producing a sequel. It's just awful, and this is coming from a couple of the biggest Chuck enthusiasts out there. The only thing that would have saved the movie is if Norris and the dog had an action packed battle to the death similar to the end brawl in Missing in Action II. Obviously we did not get this one and in no way can recommend it to even the b lovers out there."
Worth it just for the last scene

"I bought this movie because it is BAD, not because it is good, and I'm pretty sure that you're buying it ironically as well. The cover implies "bad 90s comedy," but its PG-13 rating takes itself WAAAAAY too seriously as Chuck Norris and his dog partner Reno have to stop a white supremecist plot. It's like a longer, less awesome, and frankly, less funny version of any given episode of Walker: Texas Ranger.
HOWEVER, the final scene, which involves Reno the dog and an English speaking Pope...well, let's just say it's one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time. Your brain will explore from laughter and confusion.
If you want a bad movie with consistent unintentional comedy throughout, get "Mac and Me." If you want to torture yourself for an hour and a half just to watch a dog and the Pope interact, get "Top Dog" today!"
