So what if I'm a Chuck Norris Fan!
16 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Hey, when Norris learns that she is still alive, HE GOES BACK FOR HER. That's gotta count for something in these days of throw-away relationships.

The final action scene is a touching "bonding" moment as father and son together take down the bad guy! I liked the intended, old-fashioned, "feel good" emotion!
