Retired CIA agent , Norris , back on action when his former enemy, Lynch , invades Florida with a terrorist army
Exciting , thrilling film depicting an one-man army who comes to the rescue of the United States when a terrorist attempts to overtake entire nation by means a violent full-fledged invasion carried out by the ¨Russian enemy¨ . Entertaining and moving movie about an absurd conspiracy for invasion US that threatens American economic prosperity . The picture concerns upon a dangerous international terrorist group trying to destroy United States via some continued series of terrorist operations but CIA discovers the scheme and assigns the mission a retired agent . As Matt Hunter (Chuck Norris) goes back in action against a fearful enemy spy (Richard Lynch) and his troops who invade Florida . It's a pulp movie of political war genre in which there are turmoil , repellent violence ,suspense, intrigue, tension , action using tons of explosions and bombings ; resulting to be quite bemusing . The history deals about a nasty Russian and his hoodlums causing destruction and panic , versus Norris and American patriots who fight strongly to vanquish them.
This is a routine actioner with Karate star Chuck Norris as retired CIA agent resulting go be one of the best roles he'd made to date , as he's nice as tough, cold, stubborn Matt Hunter . It's a predictable , shallow and brainless film though will appeal to Chuck Norris enthusiasts because of it contains some excellent action sequences . In spite of lack luster and budget is quite agreeable and entertaining . The plot is almost ridiculous and senseless but it's developed in fast moving and numerous surprises and for that reason is amusing . In the film there are some nasty , ominous villains well played by Richard Lynch and Billy Drago at a brief intervention . This paranoia-political-thriller movie has precedent in those films of the 50s and 60s in which take place fantastic invasion on America as ¨Sinister invasion or Invasion USA (1952)¨ , that bears remarkable resemblance, by Alfred E Green and ¨Battle beneath the earth¨(1967) by Montomery Tully . The motion picture takes part of a genre which in the 80s attained splendor, thus : ¨Red Dawn¨( by John Milius with Patrick Swayze) and ¨Amerika¨ ( by Donald Wyre with Kris Kristofferson) where the communists -Russkies generally- execute invasion on America. Thrilling and pulsating musical score by Jay Chattaway and mediocre cinematography by cameraman Joao Fernandez . The motion picture is produced by Cannon films ( Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus ) and professionally directed by Joseph Zito , a craftsman expert on terror and action genre (Delta Force one : the lost patrol , Red Scorpion, Friday the 13th : the last chapter,The prowler and Missing in action, again with Norris ). The motion picture will appeal to Chuck Norris fans . Rating: Average but entertaining
