This was chuck's 2nd best film, Lone Wolf McQuade being his 1st. Chuck just walks through this movie without jumping into any form of acting ability, an ability which he has never had. but what you see a Norris movie for is his Martial Arts, and he delivers here!!! Some great fights (Lots in slow mo) and a great soundtrack. It also boasts one of the worst WAKING UP FROM A NIGHTMARE pieces of acting in the history of film. Mako is great, Christopher Lee doesn't do a lot and Chuck has NO BEARD, which makes him look about 4 (Although that would make him the hairiest 4 year old ever!!!) All in all a great early 80s actioner which is never dull. Chuck Norris should have made all his movies with Steve Carver.
