Picks and Pans Review: Top Dog
Chuck Norris, Reno the dog
Except for an unhappy coincidence in timing—the villains are white supremacists who bomb public buildings—this is an innocuously entertaining Norris action film, with a standard ration of punch-ups, a relatively tasteful, if uninspired, script and a few neat surprises thanks to Reno, a shaggily likable French briard that plays an explosive-and drug-sniffing K-9 corpsdog given to San Diego cop Norris as a partner.
Norris has become a comfortable actor who effectively kids himself and who doesn't mind being upstaged by children and animals. (PG-13)
