Some of the casino action scene was stock footage from the pilot episode of the Robert Urich show Vega$ that was filmed at the Maxim Hotel Casino, before moving to the Desert Inn for the rest of the series run. Maxim can be seen on the wheel of fortune as well as on the cards at the Black Jack table. This same casino scene was also used for the opening credits for the run of the series. See more »

Forced Vengeance is another example of an one of those movies that would be unwatchable were it not for all the hilarious scenes. This TBS regular is the story of ex-soldier turned casino security guard, Josh Randall (Norris), who takes on a Hong Kong Syndicate single-handedly after his boss and friend, Sam Paschal (Opatoshu), is murdered by a rival casino owner. (If that in itself doesn't spell hilarity, I don't know what does.) Along with his deadpan narration, this film truly showcases Norris' acting prowess. :) This combined with the incredibly trite dialog leads to some of the funniest moments in the film. "He's sick, verrry sick..." says Randall matter-of-factly to some Hong Kong locals as he kidney-punches a corrupt Inspector who's been hounding him and stuffs him into a car. It just doesn't get any better than this, folks. I love this movie. There are so many funny moments it's worth watching over and over. And I guarantee you'll be quoting some of Randall's lines for weeks afterwards if you give it a chance.
