Wow, this Chuck Norris movie really has a low score.
29 December 2009 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

I can not believe this movie has such a low score, I did not think it was all that great, but I thought it was rather watchable. It went by fairly quickly, but lets just say there were parts that were disappointing. All through the movie they seemed to be building a somewhat great final showdown between Chuck and some awesome fighter, but that fight never materialized. In fact, at the beginning of the movie when they were talking about their town finally being recognized as a town they mentioned someone that was supposedly integral in the founding of the town and I thought this unseen character would be the one to have a showdown with Chuck, but instead it seemed to be some random guy. The story is a bit like a couple of other movies about small towns and dudes who come into these towns and kick butt because the small town is usually full of corruption. Here I think Chuck's brother is a truck driver who gets pulled over and ends up being taken prisoner in this town so Chuck has to come into town and rescue him. He befriends a female in town during his butt kicking exploits. This film is a bit like the movie "Ruckus", though I would say that film is the superior movie even though this one has Chuck Norris in it and that one did not.
