Chuck Norris shows that older guys can still pack some muscle in this kickass action flick.
1 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie gives Chuck Norris fans some nostalgic scenes from the past combined with a promise for a new series to come. Norris plays Joshua McCord, a college professor who moonlights as the president's man in emergencies. The movie leads off with some far-fetched, but entertaining, intrigue in rescuing the First Lady from terrorists. But the real story revolves around Chuck's desire to train a young agent to work with him. Dylan Neal stars as Deke Slater, a spec ops soldier falsely accused and imprisoned. A hard charger with an attitude, Slater is targeted for death in the brig, and winds up having to slay one of his attackers to survive. Chuck steps in and recruits the angry Slater to work with him. In a number of well done scenes we see the older Norris training, lifting weights and sparring with the younger man. Its great watching Chuck, at 60 years old, hold his own with the 31 year old Neal. When we see him bare-chested, Norris can still show off the muscular build that made him a Hollywood legend. Slowly but surely, Slater loses his attitude and comes to see Chuck almost as a father figure. Together they become a lethal team of silent assassins and are ready for whatever mission the president assigns them. That mission comes fast enough when American women and children are captured by terrorists in Colombia. Chuck learns that General Tran, an old enemy from Viet Nam, is behind the plot. With this extra incentive, Deke and Chuck parachute into the jungle to rescue the hostages. As soon as they land, the action heats up. As they infiltrate the terrorists' camp, Chuck uses some old school martial arts moves to break the neck of an unwary sentry. As soon as we hear the "snap," we see Chuck give a little grin, as if to say "see – the old man's still got it!" Less than a minute later, Deke – whose own shirtless scenes revealed a chiseled physique – uses pure muscle to likewise twist a bad guy's head with a satisfying crack. Throughout the action, it's as if they are in competition to see who can rack up the biggest body count. As they close in on Gen. Tran, the camera alternates between each man as they employ different techniques to silently kill a dozen terrorists. This movie has some fun throwbacks to Chuck's earlier movies. It's no surprise that Chuck has a final showdown with General Tran (played by Soon-Tek Oh, whom Norris fans will recognize from previous run ins with Chuck in his earlier Viet Nam films,) and it's especially satisfying to see Chuck finish him off with the same signature "hangman" hold he used to break Bill "Superfoot" Wallace's neck in "Force of One." The end of the movie has Deke Slater becoming a fully fledged member of Chuck's team with the promise of more missions to come. For anybody that admires an older guy's ability to play an action hero, Norris is your man, while Dylan Neal makes an impressive debut as an up and coming movie badass.
