Another one of Chuck's hits.
15 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Again with the negative Chuck Norris reviews. Why?! An action movie doesn't have to have state of the art special effects to be great. Chuck Norris embraces his darker side in The Hit-man which I was to surprised to find was directed by his brother Aaron Norris. The Hit-man has got some really funny one liners and some added cheese here and there but I guess you can't make a pizza without sprinkling on some cheesy goodness. Not only is this a first for Chuck Norris having a darker hero role but it marks the second time iv'e ever heard him drop the F bomb which is pretty rare for Chuck Norris. My favorite part is when Chuck Norris tries to help a young boy with a bully but as it turns out the bully has a bully father to whom Chuck Norris teaches another lesson if you know what I mean. Ecellent movie especially if you like a cheese pizza with pepperoni one liners as the toppings.
