Movie Info

In this made-for-TV movie, David Janssen heads the cast as an adventurous traffic-helicopter reporter. Upon witnessing a bank robbery, Janssen is pursued by the thieves, who are likewise copter-bound. The film is made up of approximately one-fourth plot and three-fourths chase, with both sides taking turns being the chasers.

Audience Reviews for Birds of Prey


Empty drama with no real point except watching helicopters race through the sky. The antagonists are faceless bad guys which makes the pursuit of them uncompelling. Ralph Meeker, looking terribly dissipated, is wasted on the sidelines and the lead actress is bland and forgettable. On top of all that the print is dark and grainy. If they're going to release old TV movies on disc why can't they at least put out the quality ones like Mrs. Sundance and A Howling in the Woods?
