Trivia

This encountered some flak as it was released just 9 days after the Oklahoma bombing. The film's plot features a gang of militant white supremacists who intend to detonate a bomb in a public place. Not surprisingly, the film took only $300 on its opening night in Oklahoma and the distributors - Live Entertainment - were forced to release a statement disassociating its film from the real-life incident.

Quite the biggest 'dog' of a movie you are ever likely to see
8 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

Oh dear.Dire with a capital D,this one.

Jake Fellon (Chuck Norris) is a veteran police cop who is brought back in from suspension to thwart a racist organization who are plotting to set off a bomb at an impending peace conference.His new partner:a dog,who,inexplicably,rescued a baby from a burning building.

Against the backdrop of this tasteless plot outline,a fine concept to try and wrangle laughs out of,we are also left to contend with a drab script and Norris,who has enough trouble turning in a decent performance,let alone trying to be funny.

The action's another hinderance.Because,like the rest of the film,it stinks.What is it in Norris movies,especially in his newer ones,where one of the bad guys always seems to go 'uh oh' in that really dumb,cornball way whenever he's about to perform a front hand punch on their faces?

If this poor man's Turner & Hooch isn't Norris's worst film,it's certainly a fu*king strong contender.*
