Another Chuck Norris great!
6 November 2009 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

About all the great movies that starred Chuck Norris, "An Eye for an Eye" happens to be one of my faves. Chuck plays Sean Kane, an San Fransico cop who kick major butt when his partner and his wife are killed. First, his partner doing a sting operation gone bad when he gets run down, his wife gets strangled by a huge henchman known only as The Professor(Professor Toru Tanaka, 1930-2000). While he chased her, he also lifted that Volkswagon that nearly ran him over. Mako play Sean's instructor who give him a hand in find the killer(Christopher Lee) who had the people killed. Richard Roundtree well known for play John Shaft, plays Sean's boss who has a tough time understanding him. The fight scenes are great. I like when he took out every villain in different fashions. The late night boat scenes when he did those double-kicks. The office where he had his hands tied behind his back. And the outdoors/indoors scenes where everything is totally awesome. The distracting spin-kick, the kick the villain into the pool. And most of all, the battle between Sean and the Professor. Despite being thrown across the bar and tables Sean managed to have the momentum to do a flying sidekick to take out the Professor once and for all. Great movie is all I can say!

3.5 out of 5 stars!
