Hey, pal, that car is gone!

Most European versions of the film omit the shower scene between Norris and Maggie Cooper and cut straight to the boat fight sequence. See more »
After his iconic battle against the legendary Bruce Lee in 1972's Way of the Dragon (and with the encouragement of cinematic superstar and karate student Steve McQueen), six-time, undefeated world karate champion Chuck Norris felt it was time to move permanently into the world of cinema.
The nicely paced, entertaining and well-structured film is filled with solid direction and wonderful performances.Chuck Norris is cool, a bit humorous and totally believable as a courageous, but dangerous hero. It's also no surprise that the legendary Christopher Lee brings a touch of diabolical class to his villainous role while the great and always reliable Richard Roundtree delivers another solid performance.
Add to all of this a kick-ass musical theme by talented composer William Goldstein (Chuck's Forced Vengeance) and you have an early 80s action/adventure that is a real joy to watch.
If, like me, you're a fan of Chuck Norris's early 80s martial arts/action films, I highly recommend An Eye for an Eye.
Overall worth watching..8 out of 10
