Avenging Force (1986) was originally written as a sequel to this film with Chuck Norris returning to the role of Matt Hunter. When he was uninterested, the role was rewritten to be younger and was given to rising Cannon star Michael Dudikoff instead. Despite sharing the same main character name, the finished film was no longer truly a sequel or prequel to the earlier film, but it stood on it's own as a stand-alone movie. See more »

Possible Spoliers: This movie is a good movie to watch on a late Friday night with a beer in hand. It is enoyable, Norris movies never require one to think, because let's face it the storylines are straight out of elementary schoolchildren's fantasy imaginations. Example: A small band of Cubans/Russkies trying to create discord and panic in America, which will allow them to take it over. They easily get wipe out by a Florida National Guard unit, Not much a of a national threat there. Golan Globus and Cannon Films knew that. They were in it just to make more money then they spent on the film and usually these films were profitable. The 80's was a time for exploitative action flicks, brawn, sex, brutality and harmless stereotypes. It is sad though that these types of films are no longer made in the political correct 90's and 2000's.
Norris' acting has never been great, even though his one liners are better than Seagal and Van Damne. He just did some running, kicking and punching and collected his paycheck.
