Seen it all before, but Neame isn't bad...
11 December 1999 | by (Auke Bay, Alaska) – See all my reviews

Anyone familiar with the 1999 lineup will find this 1993 Chuck Norris outing nothing new. It's a lot like some supernatural thrillers to emerge lately, including (but not limited to) "End of Days," "Stigmata," and "The Omega Code." In fact, it's probably a good thing this film was made before these, or else it probably would have been dismissed as a shameful, low-grade rip off.

The plot involves an odd, vampire-like creature imprisoned by Richard the Lionheart back in the days of olde who has been resurrected, and whose forecoming was fortold. Somehow, it's all tied into the armageddon, and only one person stands in his way of world domination: Good old Chuck Norris, a Texas Ranger with a bad attitude. (is anyone surprised? Just for the record, some of the cast members are from Walker as well)!

Nice settings in Israel, and some pretty good moves from Norris, but the film is pretty much a low-budget, cliched mish-mash that really offers nothing new or exciting to the sub-genre of "action hero kicking the butt of anciet evil in modern times." However, I must say that Neame is affective as the supernatural villain, providing just the right touch of evil without dramatically overplaying the role. Does he make the film worth watching? No, but that probably won't stop Norris fans from taking a look.

** out of ****
