Movie Info

In this action comedy, renegade cop Jake Wilder investigates the death of his old friend, Lou Swanson, another cop, who was killed while investigating the bombing of a San Diego housing project. To solve the murder and stop the bomber, Wilder teams up with Swanson's partner, a German Shepherd named Reno. At first the new partners do not get along, but eventually they begin working as a team and discover that the culprit was a white-supremacist group. This film stirred up a lot of controversy when it first came out as the distributors exhibited remarkably bad judgment by releasing it two weeks after the Oklahoma City bombing of a Federal building that resulted in the death of close to two hundred innocent people, some of them small children.

Audience Reviews for Top Dog


TopDog, starring Chuck Norris. Best Chuck Norris movie, and the right blend of action and humor. You've got a police Lt coming our of a suspension, who teams up with a dog to fight a terrorist, modern Nazi like group who wish to control America, and wipe out the non white Christians. Really suprised Chuck Norris swore so much in this one, since he doesn't do movies with profanities. Very excellent Chuck Norris movie overall, and should be considered his best non-R-Rated movie ever.

Chuck Norris with a pooch partner...Just plain weird, not a bad watch unless you have something better to do"

I remember this one being fun, but this concept got driven into the ground in the late 80's & all through the 90s.
