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.
