Most early Norris films give me a case of the blah's. This one is better than most, thanks to some solid action
(plot) Sean Kane is a lethal weapon whose partner (Terry Kiser) dies right in front of his very eyes. He is haunted by it ever since. He goes on the warpath for revenge to uncover the secret truths. You can guess the rest
Chuck Norris films are a mixed bag. He can make some good movies (Code Of Silence & Lone Wolf McQuade) Or he can make some really terrible one's that are cheapies, like most of his early films. This one is actually not that bad, though. It is a bit creaky at times when it comes to pacing and suspense, your villains are very poorly written. What was Christopher Lee even doing in this film? He's barely in it, aside from near the end. He was good like he always he is, but I get the feeling he needed a quick paycheck. I wish he had more screen time. When the action is present, it delivers. What Chuck Norris lacks in acting, he makes up for with his move set. He's very exciting to watch when it comes to fighting. The guy's got some serious movies and that is something I can't deny. Mako provides comedic relief as Norris's mentor. He's good at it! Richard Roundtree is solid as Capt. Stevens. Maggie Cooper is one of those wooden actresses you'd see around this time period. She's pretty bad as the love interest. Matt Clark has a great turn in the movie, whilst former WWF Wrestler, Professor Toru Tanaka makes for quite the intimidating foe. He was huge!
Final Thoughts: it is what it is. I enjoyed the action, and ended up having an OK time. It's nothing great what so ever, but it sure beats watching most of Norris's early stuff. Worth a look for fellow action junkies
