Dan Stevens is the sheriff of a small Texas town who checks out a disturbance which turns to murder. The killer is still in the house and he tries to kill Dan, but Dan stops him and arrests him. The killer attempts to flee, but is shot and killed and is taken to a medical institute. Three doctors, led by Dr. Philip Spires, operate on the killer and using a formula the doctors made, they bring him back to life. If that's not bad enough, the formula also made the killer indestructible. Dr. Tom Halman tries to stop the killer, but he and his wife are killed. After the two remaining doctors are killed, the killer goes after Dr. Halman's sister Alison, and it's up to Sheriff Dan Stevens to stop him.
Some movie posters for the film featured a long blurb that read: "Science created him. Now Chuck Norris must destroy him. He's an indestructible man fused with powers beyond comprehension. An unstoppable terror who in one final showdown, will push Chuck Norris to his limits. And beyond". See more »

Yes, I know that Chuck Norris is predictable. He hardly ever says anything and he just kicks butt. We that is true for this movie also, but there are some extras that make this an unusual movie for Norris.
First, Sheriff Chuck has a girlfriend, Toni Kalem, and they spend as much time as possible in bed giving us a great view of her ample chest. Now, that is not typical Norris behavior! When Norris visits a biker bar, we get to see some of his typical style as he cleans the place out. You knew that was going to happen, but, before he does, his Deputy, Stephen "Flounder" Furst (Animal House) gets an eyeful from one of the biker chicks, Lillette Zoe Raley, in her only movie. What a shame! We also see some action from the other biker mommas (Linda Tatum and Kathleen Lee) before Norris arrives. I've never seen so much action in a Norris film.
All of this is just titillation as the real story is the mad scientist and his partner (Steven Keats and William Finley) develop a serum that resuscitates a dead man and causes his wounds to heal immediately, Bullets, falls from second stories, cars, fire - nothing stops this guy. Well, you know who will eventually stop him, or does he? This is the only film in which I have seen Ron Silver in a humane role. He was the third doctor who tried to stop his boss. I actually was starting to like him, but, fortunately, he gets killed off before that happens. That was close! If you want Norris action with a little sci-fi craziness, then this is the flick.
