Terribly dull
19 August 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I understand that most of Norris movies aren't good . I like some of them . Sometimes you just meet yourself a movie when nothing is good . And I mean NOTHING.

Here we have a movie where Chuck Norris has to avenge his boss – the owner of casino . I don't think I'm spoiling anything here. Anyway basically the whole movie is like this : Norris beats a bad guy , then he asks him "Did you order to kill my boss", the answer is no and the bad guy gives our hero a location of other bad guy . Norris goes there , beats him , asks the question and the whole thing repeats . It will take many bad guys and many minutes of boredom before Norris will meet the final boss , kill him and the movie will end.

I don't mind a simple revenge movie , if it's done right. This one isn't . It's boring like hell. The only thing interesting are the silhouettes fighting near the neon signs. I give it 1/10.
