Trivia

According to Wikipedia, "it is rumored that a fight broke out between Carradine and Norris during the filming of the final fight scene. Norris felt that Carradine was kicking him too hard and warned him not to do it again. When he did, Norris struck him. Carradine said in one of his books that he and Norris never touched each other during the filming of Lone Wolf McQuade (1983), therefore debunking the real life fight rumor". See more »

Goofs

After Snow got pulled out of his burning vehicle and thrown due to the following explosion of the tank-truck we can clearly see his glasses on the lying on the ground, which remains there as McQuade throws him into his car and drives off. The very next scene, after they stopped on another location, he gets dragged, meant for his interrogation, but this time he is wearing his glasses. See more »

Horrendous movie, but oh so fun to watch
22 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chuck Norris plays one of his most classic rolls. A bad boy Texas Ranger that doesn't take crap from anyone, especially the captain. He has some magical Dodge Ramcharger that's supercharged and OH WOW it can haul some ass. I couldn't help but stop the movie over and over again to watch these terrible action scenes. Oh and not to offend anyone out there but I thought it was hilarious that one of the bad guys was a midget in an electric wheel chair. If you're looking for a good movie to watch, it's not this one. If you're looking for a movie to drink to... this is your best bet. Just drink anytime is does a solo shot of Chuck without him saying anything. Oh, and anytime someone looks through binoculars. I also like to drink during all slow motion sequences.
