Should come as no surprise that it's terrible
27 August 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Terry Kiser must REALLY be a good friend of Norris; not only did he guest-star several times on his "Walker" TV show, he agreed to be the villain in this terrible family movie. Actually, you can't really call it a "family" movie - it's strictly aimed at the juvenile set instead of having something for kids AND their parents. Correction - make that a particular juvenile set that has its classes in the basement of a school. The dopey tone and the extreme exaggeration of the heavies will even have five year-olds rolling their eyes.

Poor Chuck; looking at him in the movie, it's obvious that he's past his prime. Watching him in action during the (badly choreographed and edited) fights, it's obvious that 99% that it's a double doing the action - since you only see his face 1% of the time in these scenes! (This was also very evident in his TV series after the first few seasons.) Actually, it's hard to feel any sympathy to him when you consider that he actually isn't in that much of the movie. Also, he appears utterly bored in his scenes. Well, at least Norris for once is showing emotion.

It's no wonder that this never got a theatrical release. It's an embarrassment to everyone involved. That is, except for the underrated Roscoe Lee Brown. He enters and leaves the movie with his dignity intact, giving a conviction to everything he says. What a performer, to be able to survive this!
