Mike Dooley has been teamed up with Jerry Lee, a German Shepherd dog, for nearly ten years, but Jerry Lee isn't as young as he once was, and Dooley's superiors suggest that maybe it's time that Jerry Lee was retired from the force. But there is a stalker who wants Dooley dead. The stalker, disgruntled crime novelist Devon Lane, became obsessed with Dooley's wife after she rejected his book, and he blames Dooley for her death. When Jerry Lee can't keep up with chasing Devon during a shootout, Captain Byers teams Dooley and Jerry Lee with a younger K9 team -- aggressive female detective Welles and her dog Zeus, a young, strong Doberman Pincher. After Dooley futilely investigates a convict he once busted, the dogs get him back on track by sniffing out Devon's storage locker. The room reveals Devon's identity to Dooley, and one of Devon's manuscripts reveals that he intends to make Dooley suffer for his words. When Devon makes a bold move by invading the precinct and taking Welles hostage... Written by Todd Baldridge

I grew up loving the first K-9 & watched it over & over on video so when i heard that James Belushi said in a radio interview that he was making a straight to video sequel to K-9 back in the late 90's i was extremely excited as i was already obsessed with the first Classic Cop Comedy. I love James Belushi i think he's one of the greatest actors of all time!!! Belushi can be hilarious in goofy comedies & then be a tough guy in a deadly serious Thriller & that is what being a brilliant actor is all about. He's fantastic in serious films such as Gang Related,Retroactive,Traces of Red,One way out & Separate Lives Among others & i grew up watching this great guy & collected any videos starring James Belushi,he's always been one of my favourite actors.

K-911 is a lovely little easy going Cop Comedy Thriller it still has that old school cop Thriller feel but with alot more added fun comedy it's a joy to see my old buddies back,Detective Dooley & Jerry Lee. James Belushi is on top comic form again in this sequel but although he goofs around & there's alot of fun silly moments there's still heartfelt drama especially in a lovely sad little scene where Dooley is going to bed & sits on the edge looking at an old photo of himself with his wife who has passed away from an illness & it's a very sad moment with that bit of depth that tells me the new director cares about the characters & it's a touching moment to show how Dooley is still missing Tracey & seems so lost without her but of course he still has his faithful partner & buddy Jerry Lee by his side.

This plays as a fun comedy but also does turn into a Thriller when things get dangerous when a psycho who is obsessed with Dooley's late wife begins targeting Dooley. So there's a well thought out backstory that opens up & nice connections to the Tracey character (Dooley's wife) so this feels like a proper sequel.

K-911 has a solid little story & a heartwarming buddy cop drama going for it as well as seeing our favourite cop duo older in life & a new case to follow them on.

This is a low-budget straight to video movie but it's still well made & very entertaining. The tone is different than the 80's classic but it's now the late 90's so it's filmed differently & obviously on a small budget & it's gone for more light hearted family fun but it's ok to be different as we don't want the exact same or a remake so it's fine. Another little change is he's now LAPD rather than San Diego PD but in the big time gap since '89 he's obviously moved departments so thats a nice fresh little touch & Dooley now lives in a lovely big house in the suburbs & other nice little touch is his old boss Captain Byers (James Handy) is back & still swinging for Dooley as a little in joke from the first film. There's some romance too with a new cop duo with the lovely Sgt.wells (Chrisine Tucci) & her dog Zues who Dooley seems to be falling for & it's all played really nicely & you see what a warm nice guy Detective Dooley really is.

It's still sad that Tracey has died but that's life for real so that adds some dark depth to this fun cop comedy & James Belushi is definitely enjoying himself back as Dooley & there's a nice fun training montage with happy music while watching Dooley & Jerry Lee try to get back in shape it's a lovely scene.

So yes i am a huge fan of the 80's classic K-9 & it's in my top 10 fave movies of all time but although straight to video back in 1999, k911 is still a great,fun thrilling sequel. There's lots to like & enjoy & this movie will put a smile on your face.
