When Chuck Norris was offered the lead role of the film, he was in the process of establishing a new kick-boxing league in Los Angeles with Benny Urquidez. Norris cites his decision to pursue the movie over the league as a defining point in his transition from martial arts competition to acting. See more »

And so as history slowly places it into some kind of perspective, a few things about the Vietnam War have become clear. It was a war that never should have begun, and a country we never should have entered. And as thousands of victims died without really understanding why. Mainly because the reasons for the war were beyond any rules of logic. On Wednesday we'll sing patriotic songs and pretend I said none of the above.

Chuck Norris is John T. Booker and Booker is fighting back.
I'm not sure when I first watched this one, but it must have been sometime in the mid 80's or so.Back then anything starring Mr. Norris was a sure thing in my book, I don't think that i was ever disappointed with any of his movies.I mean, how could you be? It is Chuck Norris!
The plot in Good Guys Wear Black is quite good and I won't go further into it here. You'll have to watch the movie to find out more! It's a well- written one, directed by Ted Post, who's also done Hang 'Em High and Magnum Force. The cast is actually not that bad. Anne Archer, James Franciscus are all good actors and Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris, so it all evens out in the end. No, all kidding aside, even Mr Norris is good here..
If there's one gripe I have with this movie, it's the fact that as far as it being an action flick it's a bit "talky", you know? I would have liked a little more action I really wanted to like the movie more, and all it had to do was have Chuck fight more people, and have more scenes like the action set piece in the middle. That's ALL it had to do to win us over, but it's just a little too much talking
So if you have the patience and you like 70's type action movies then you should like this.
Overall worth watching.. 7 out of 10
