Decent Movies if You Are a Spenser Fan

I love Robert B. Parker's Spenser character. As a kid growing up I also loved the television series. Spenser and Hawk are, simply put, two of the greatest characters in crime fiction ever.

These four Spenser movies starring Robert Urich as Spenser and Avery Brooks as Hawk, were produced in the mid-1990's and are nostalgic for me, reminding me of the television series. That said they are made for television movies with all the flaws. The supporting cast is pretty weak in terms of acting ability and the stories are just a tad less dramatic than the books. It's kind of like watching the Lifetime Movie of Week for men. So, overall, after seriously viewing these movies again, I have to say they are not all that good. Urich and Brooks do make a great team though and while not totally true to Spenser, are close enough, and entertaining enough.

The four movies in this collection are:

Ceremony
The Judas Goat
A Savage Place
Pale Kings and Princes
