Goofs

In a scene with mob boss Falcon, both Ranger McQuade and Falcon point their revolvers at the other as a form of intimidation, with Falcon stating that his was the "bigger gun", while McQuade pulls back the hammer of his revolver stating that his was loaded. On a close up of the gun, this is revealed to be true as bullets are visible in the revolver's cylinder. After both men lower their weapons to have a conversation, McQuade goes to safely release the hammer from his revolver by thumbing it as he lowers it. However, McQuade misses the hammer and the trigger is pulled causing it to dry fire. Had the gun been loaded as stated and shown, this should have caused the cartridge to discharge and the revolver to fire in a dangerous manner, as it was not held in a position to properly be fired, nor pointed at a safe direction away from either men.

WOW!
11 February 2002 | by blakeboyukSee all my reviews

Certainly Chucks greatest along with The Delta Force, this film has very few flaws. From the outset we see the hard and rugged Chuck fight it out with style and humour. The joy within this film is yet again a credit to Norris. The best scene's involve the uzi scene (his face as he spins round - utter comedy), the line "No one's ever killed a Texas Ranger", the crazy little guy, THE SHEER DELIGHT as he drives his car out of the ground and the great end fight scene where Carradine camps it up no end. The what would normally be haunting music only adds to the fun of this film...the only time I didnt laugh is when they shot his dog!
