When Chuck Norris drops out of the F117's bomb bay, his body appears to be about the size of one of the side windows of the canopy, which means either he is about 3 feet tall, or the stealth fighter is far bigger than its actual size. See more »


Joshua McCord: [after Joshua talks to George] You screwed up.
Deke Slater: [Deke interupts] Joshua I know, but that...
Joshua McCord: Let me finish... you screwed up, but you screwed up for the right reasons. You're going to make mistakes, but it's how you deal with those mistakes, that's going to make the difference.
Deke Slater: So, does this mean I'm not fired?
Joshua McCord: You're not that lucky.

Much better than I expected
23 February 2013 | by jayce2279See all my reviews

I feel I should comment on all of the negative reviews this title has gotten. You've got to remember this is a television production from 2000, which is pre-Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy, Justified or The Walking Dead. If you take this into consideration, I thought the makers of The President's Man did a pretty good job. There are a lot of action and martial arts scenes, of a much more violent nature than you would expect from a late 20th century TV movie, and Chuck Norris does everything you expect of him. Although some scenes are a little oversimplified and at times don't paint a very credible image of the workings of the U.S. Army or a drug cartel, the movie kind of reminded me of a lower budget version of Delta Force 2. If you're a Chuck Norris fan I'd definitely give it a shot.
