Goofs

In the final showdown between Hunter and Rostov, Rostov walks down a hallway scanning very carefully to his left and right. When Hunter appears behind him and racks his grenade launcher, Rostov swings around to face him. He is 3 feet away from a window, at the end of a dead-end hallway. See more »

"Tell Rostov it's time to die."
22 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Commies invade Florida led by ol' coke nose himself, Richard Lynch. Little do the Reds know, bearded former CIA agent Chuck Norris is here to defend the USA! Norris punches, kicks, shoots, and explodes his way through the enemy forces. He singlehandedly wards off an invasion of the United States. If that doesn't redefine badass, I don't know what does. Many classic scenes and lines. Loaded with testosterone. Super violent in the best Cannon tradition. Norris is excellent in what might be my favorite movie of his. Richard Lynch is a pretty scary individual that I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. Billy Drago has a memorable scene. I don't think it's a huge spoiler to say he dies but HOW he dies you will have to watch to find out. You won't see it coming, trust me. Essential viewing for fans of Norris, Cannon, and action movie buffs.
