gotta love chuck
30 May 2002 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

saw this back in my navy days while stationed in san diego. i think it pumped alot of the military up. sure it had bad acting

and a very far fetched plot(a small army of commie terrorists invade miami florida and start blowing up houses). I mean how did they think they were going to take over the US with an army of about 1,000 men.

But that aside i love watching chuck blow em away anyway, i see these movies for the action not the acting.Only thing that I dont like about some chuck norris movies are scenes which have nothing to do with the plot and this movie has those too.A few scenes involving rostov had nothing to do with the plot

Like Rostov meeting with a drug dealer for some unknown reason and then after completing the deal he kills the guy and a chick who was snorting coke gets shoved and the tube gets rammed up her nose,I guess Rostov didnt like her screaming so he ends up tossing her ass out the window and watches her do a swan dive 20 stories. What did this have to do with the plot? . the plot. Oh well, still fun to watch chuck kick ass ...
