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

Whoopi Goldberg was Chuck Norris's first choice to play the female journalist. Joseph Zito disagreed, and cast someone else. See more »

Goofs

The rocket fired by an M72 LAW needs a minimum of 33 feet to arm. Hunter and Rostov are standing too close to each other to have the rocket do more than penetrate Rostov. See more »

Quotes

John Eagle: Matt, you wanna come to dinner tonight? We got some live ones. Fried, steamed, barbequed, your choice.
Matt Hunter: [under his breath] God, I'm sick of frogs.

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 »

User Reviews

As James Jaskolski would say, "Hey buddies! She looks *exactly* like the President's daughter from INVASION U.S.A. !!!"
10 June 2003 | by MaxZorinSee all my reviews

First off, let's just make it clear that my friend James is an idiot. Look at the cast credits... no credits for the President, let alone his daughter...

Anyhow, despite what James said, INVASION U.S.A. is yet another Chuck Norris epic of patriotism and action. Chuck Norris saves the day and kicks Richard Lynch's butt back to Russia in this 1980's classic. It's nothing spectacular that would be deemed a must see, yet I can't avoid sitting back and watching this movie when it is on TNT (they know drama alright).

Chuck Norris goes on to do WALKER, TEXAS RANGER and SIDEKICKS. Richard Lynch goes on to film WEREWOLF with veteran actor R.C. Bates, the best worst movie ever made.

Sit back and relax America, Chuck's got our back.
