Trivia

The climactic night fight scene was shot in California in January and was prohibitively cold. Especially for Chuck Norris and Bill Wallace who were both barefoot and bare-chested throughout. The cameras would roll for a couple of minutes and then both actors would cover up and stand by a fire to warm up. See more »

Goofs

When Chuck Norris and Jennifer O'Neal are in a car talking, from around 18:30 to 20:41, the cars behind them as they individually speak are different (noticeably so). See more »

Chuckie kicks back as a one man lone wolf force
3 January 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

In all fairness, being a Chuck Norris vehicle, this isn't a bad film. It's quite a well made product, devoid of Chuck's sub standard acting, surpassed by the rest of the interestingly chosen cast, Neill exceptionally good as s female cop, and Gulager as a weary lieutenant, who unfortunately we don't see enough off in this. It has a cool start off as we dolly with a skateboarding teen (a drug courier) down the city streets of day, two cops trailing him, on their own accord as they want they collar. Instead they walk straight into death as a faceless karate assassin kills them in pretty painful ways. Bring on Chuckie who again, is not really acting, but can bring heart and reality into this role, like others.... unintentionally, I presume. As you can guess, woman cop Neill falls for him. The batch of Gulager's crew undergo karate training, to take on these powerful forces, but when the faceless villain, messes with Chuckie's teen friend, who's like a son, with great potential for the martial arts, it's now a fight to the death. Although it does lack action in long spaces of time, where it tends to sag here and there, as not living up to Chuckie's action quota, here we actually got a real Chuckie movie, and this is one of his I've always liked. The deadly showdown awaits too.
