Storyline

A terrorist, Rostov, is planning to unleash a reign of terror on the U.S.. But before he does he decides to go after Matt Hunter, a former CIA agent who lives in Florida. Hunter once had Rostov's life in his hands, but on orders took him alive, and now Rostov is plagued by nightmares of Hunter killing him. So Rostov goes after him but misses, so Hunter, who has already been approached by his former employers to go after Rostov, after initially turning down the job, because he believed that they should have let him terminate Rostov when he had the chance, decides to go after him. But he is only one man and Rostov has hundreds of men ripping the country apart, so how will he stop it? Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Cannon completely removed all the story elements and background characters in the editing room, in order to concentrate on Chuck Norris and the action. Editor Daniel Loewenthal has stated that Cannon's cut made the film heavily episodic and pretty much a collection of explosive action scenes. See more »

Goofs

During final showdown, when Hunter throws Rostov over the table for the second time, Rostov remains still on the table for sometime. A protective pad is clearly visible under his jeans. See more »

Quotes

Flynn: Hi, Matt.
Matt Hunter: How's business?
Flynn: Oh, just booming. Sorry. There's all sorts of amateurs out there these days that are willing to fight wars for money.
Matt Hunter: I'm looking for Rostov.
Flynn: Rostov? You think he's behind all this? He can't be. He's in Europe.
Matt Hunter: He's here. I got to find him.
Flynn: You know, you never had any patience, Hunter.
Matt Hunter: I don't have time. Besides, you owe me for saving you in South America.

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by 10 secs by the BBFC to remove bullet impacts from a groin shooting and to edit a scene where a woman snorting cocaine through a straw is hit across the head by Rostov. For the video release a further 4 secs were made to edit a scene where a man's hand is impaled to a table with a knife. The cuts were fully restored in the 2004 DVD. See more »

One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time!
15 September 1999 | by culwinSee all my reviews

Oh come on! This movie is hilarious!!

Chuck Norris is the funniest action hero since Charlie Sheen in "Hot Shots Part Deux"! Of course the plot (what there is of one) is completely ridiculous, and only exists to have an excuse to blow stuff up and for Chuck to beat people up. This only adds to the laughability! I highly recommend this to any person looking for the ultimate in exagerated action films. And those quotes! Classic!!

"If you come in here again, I'll hit you with so many rights..you'll beg for a left!"
