Overly bad
7 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a drug raid goes ridiculously bad, police officer Jack Hazard (Chuck's brother, Aaron Norris) takes a vacation to South America, but good ol' Jack can't stay out of trouble for long. He finds himself on the run from the local authorities after a fisticuff lands him in prison. Oh that Hazard, can't take that lovable scamp anywhere.

A truly awful film any way you slice it. Atrocious acting, extremely sub-par action scenes, bizarre characterization. Just pretty unwatchable stuff. Not so bad that it's good. Just so bad that it's bad. Chuck Norris should just punch this film out of existence and save his brother some embarrassment .
