Chuck pulls a Steven Seagal with a film about wilderness...

(Credit, IMDb) John McKenna is a spiritual being who is able to transform into bear, wolf or eagle. He lives in the forests of Tanglewood and has dedicated his life to protect them. One day a gang of evil lumberjacks led by Travis Thorne arrive Tanglewood to chop the forest down. McKenna cannot let this happen, and together with his new friends - Lords of the Tanglewood, a band of children who love to play in the forest - he battles against Thorne and his evil gang.

This movie makes On Deadly Ground look like an Oscar winner in comparison. Woe is me, was this bad. I've sat through my share of Chuck Norris stinkers, but this takes the cake. There is fight sequences, but none of them are all that exciting. We get plenty of mystical mumbo- jumbo, along with Chuck Norris embarrassing himself and ending his Hollywood career, though I think it was already on the tail end when this movie was done. I like Chuck, but he has made some awful films. This is one of them.
