Storyline

Chief inspector Paul Fein and his eldest son inspector Ben Fein investigate the double murder on banker Phillip Chandler, whose family is also in politics, and his wife. Their first suspect, heir Evan Chandler, is found murdered in his car. Paul is likely to succeed the chief of police who is about to retire, but then finds he was involved in a major drug-related corruption web, and when he chief is killed becomes the rage of various accusations; even taken off the case, Paul and Ben keep investigating, forcing a fiscal investigator to collaborate. Junior son Eddie Fein feels guilty for failing to save his partner's life, even if officially cleared, and saves Caroline Chandler's life. Written by KGF Vissers

The Milwaukee Jewish version of the Irish Catholic Reagans
6 October 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Watching this last Family Of Cops film I have to wonder whether the Feins are the models for the Reagans of Blue Bloods. Certainly they are the Milwaukee Jewish version of the Irish Catholic Reagans. One also wonders if Charles Bronson would have done a future film where he became Chief of the Milwaukee PD. if bad health hadn't made this his farewell film.

Mayor Art Hindle brought that possibility up with Bronson as Bronson's eldest son Detective Joe Penny is investigating the shooting deaths of a prominent banker and Milwaukee mover and shaker and his wife in the bedroom of their home. Suspicion falls on the son, but then he's killed.

Years earlier Bronson was doing an investigation of the victim's bank for money laundering and was told to stop by the now outgoing Chief of the Milwaukee PD. When Bronson questions the chief they are attacked and the chief dies. Someone is most certainly tying up loose ends. But for the moment the whole Fein family is under a cloud.

No doubt Bronson was showing age and infirmity. Still the patriarchal role fits him well. Family Of Cops: Under Suspicion is not the greatest film to go out on, but hardly a disgrace.

And who knows if it weren't for the Feins we might not be enjoying Tom Selleck and his clan the Reagans.
