Chuck Norris' best role ever. Spaghetti Western in 1980's Texas
Chuck Norris was clean shaven until this role, and since it he hasn't shaved his beard. From this movie, Norris' hit t.v. show Walker Texas Ranger is based.
JJ McQuade (Chuck Norris) is a Lone Wold renegade Texas Ranger. He is unstoppable, using karate kicks and uzi's to hose down the enemy. He is a divorced father, who takes care of his daughter, yet has enough time for a love affair with the stunning Barbara Carrera.
This is also the first movie where Robert Beltran of Star Trek fame is featured. Also in this movie are David Carradine and Leon Isaac Kennedy. So the cast is great, the story is tight, the music by Francesco De Masi is amazing, and the action is constant.
This is a must see for any action fan, it also makes good viewing at home with a beer and a date, because there is a lot of romance in it as well.
