Decent Chuck Norris flick
11 September 2012 | by BlueghostSee all my reviews

I saw this in a drive in way back when, and didn't think much of Chuck Norris as an actor. I still don't, but he's an okay performer. He a martial arts action star, and does what he does on screen. I was never a fan of his, but this movie seemed okay for what it was.

Truth is I can't recall too much of it, but it did entertain. It was something about a truck driver rescuing some family, and as usual Chuck does his martial arts thing against the good old boys of hick town USA.

The truth is it's kind of a dumb flick. Not something I'd recommend, even for a night's viewing, but if you like seeing martial arts on the big screen against corrupt hicks, then give this film a whirl.
