Two-fisted Norris again as an ex-soldier and casino security chief pitting Asian villains
4 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Our hero Norris , one man army , now as a Hong Kong Casino (the name of the Hong Kong night club and gambling house was "The Lucky Dragon Casino") security bodyguard taking on bullies when are brutally killed his chief (David Opatoshu) and son . He attempts to save the chief's daughter (Camila Griggs) from the clutches an evil mobster (Michael Cavanaugh) . Tough Norris battling Chinese triads with the only help his lovely fiancée (Mary Louise Weller) and confronts a sinister baddie like a human tank . For a little more entertainment , the human weapon Norris saves the girl and struggles some hired killers and criminal gangs.

This is a slang-bang , unstopped action film with variety martial acts though predictable . Indestructible Norris in yet another groan and grunt middling budget movie ; a routine non-sense , action-thriller that featured fourteen major action sequences. Written and filmed as "The Jade Jungle", but MGM later changed the title to "Forced Vengeance" during post production to make it sound more like an action film . 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 .

Norris stars naturally taking on multiple opponents , cleaning up nasties from Far Orient and beats them , punches ,knocks ,kicks and defying the gravity in bounds and leaps . Chuck plays nicely an ex-Vietnam vet (like Colonel Braddock from Missing in action) turned security chief . Appears uncredited , almost extra , his true son Mike Norris , besides as expert stunt , his brother and future director , Aaron Norris . Being one of numerous collaborations of actor-star Chuck Norris and brother stunt coordinator Aaron . Light-weight amusement with suspense , thriller and too much used Chop-Socky formula , leave no cliché untouched , though fights are well staged . The movie belongs to Norris's early period , during the 80s , such as ¨Force 7¨ , ¨Goods guys wear black¨ , ¨Octagon , ¨Force of one¨ ,¨Eye for eye¨ , and ¨Code of silence¨ with successful box office as video rentals as theaters . In the late 90s and 2000s , with exception ¨Walker Texas Ranger¨ , Norris stars has declined . The motion picture was professionally directed by James Fargo who directed two Clint Eastwood vehicles as ¨The enforcer¨ , ¨Every which way but loose¨. This movie is a must see if you're a die-hard Norris fan.
