This early Chuck Norris fare is one of his entertaining and exciting one to view. Done by Steve Carver who later did the sightly better Lone Wolf McQuade(1983). Its about a Police officer who quits the force to find the people responsible for his partner's death. He ends up joining forces with James Chan played by Mako when he battles some Triad organization. The Triads are portrayed differently in this film then they would be during the mid to late 1980s. This was before gunplay became a big part of the Triad pictures from the Heroic Bloodshed genre in Hong Kong cinema. An Eye for An Eye(1981) is much better then any of Chuck Norris's movies from the 1990s.
The battle between Chuck Norris and Professor Toru Tanako is one of the top martial arts match ups in any Norris flick. Chris Lee makes a great villain as the diabolical Morgan Canfield. Mako adds to the already good cast with his presence and wisdom. Mako is probably the only person to have appeared in a movie or TV show with Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Jackie Chan, and Sammo Hung. An Eye for An Eye(1981) must have been the inspiration for the Steven Seagal film, Hard to Kill(1990) because the plots are almost identical. Anohter memorable character is The Professor. Future Cythnia Rothrock co star, Richard Norton provides some of the stunts for the film.
