Bring it on, Chuck!, 13 March 2013
Author: Brian T. Whitlock (GOWBTW) from WILMINGTON, NC

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
