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 »

Being a champion in the martial arts has its perks. In "Forced Vengeance", it says it all. Chuck Norris plays Josh Randall, head of security in a Hong Kong casino where the son of it's original owner works. When Josh returns with money owed from a California gambler, he sees David Pascal (Frank Michael Liu) fire a worker for skimming, and make him leave without his pants. Josh would later visit the original owner, Sam (David Opatachu). When David and Sam meets a competing casino owner (Michael Cavanaugh) who gives him an offer, Sam refuses. Josh puts his martial arts action into overdrive when the father and son are murdered. He would later take it to the max when his girlfriend and Army buddy gets attacked. The big goon gets his just desserts for raping and killing Randall's girlfriend. And for the inspector (Lloyd Kino), he helped Josh after finding out about his partner Keck (Jimmy Shaw) worked for the crime boss. The staircase fight scene was classic, short and swift. Hong Kong was a big place, and it really put Las Vegas to shame. "Forced Vengeance" is really high impact, and it's a Chuck Norris classic all the way. 4 out of 5 stars
