decent early Chuck Norris film
2 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i liked this early Chuck Norris flick,although interestingly,Jennifer O'Neill got top billing,not Chuck.it not a masterpiece or anything,but it's entertaining,and the acting is decent enough.the story is not completely original,but i liked what they did with it.they made it interesting enough.it's well paced and not boring.on a side note,Pat E. Johnson(martial arts choreographer on all four Karate Kid films,and Ninth Degree black belt under Chuck Norris)co wrote the story and has a cameo as a karate match referee.anyway,in my opinion,you could do a lot worse with eighty five minutes or so of your time.for me,A Force of One is a 6/10
