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 »

This is perhaps the best of all the Chuck Norris movies and is a great precursor for his long running role as WALKER TEXAS RANGER.J.J.McQuade is also a Texas Ranger but somewhat more unkempt and ruthless than his TV counterpart,he is engaged in a running battle against a villainous arms dealer portrayed by David Carradine who faces Norris at the climax in a down and dirty mano a mano kick-fest which by this time the audience is screaming for.This is just the icing on the cake of a pleasing action packed movie directed with great gusto by Steve Carver. The movie also has a superb cod spaghetti western score from Francesco Da Masi,veteran of dozens of Hercules type movies from the 60s;people enjoy this who normally would avoid a Chuck Norris movie,for those who like them anyway this is the best of the bunch.
