5.0 out of 5 stars Prime Chuck, July 21, 2012
By 
This review is from: A Force of One (DVD)
This is easily my favorite Chuck Norris movie and was the first one I saw. I first watched it as a young lad on TV a few years after it had left the theaters and this began my major fascination with martial arts, along with the rest of America in the early '80s. Karate lessons, nunchucks, throwing stars, ninja outfits, LOL the whole 9 yards. There is an appealing somber, vintage feel to the entire flick and this is the best example of Chuck as a competitive martial arts fighter as opposed to being a cowboy, cop, or other more obviously fictional characters. It's great fun to watch two highly trained, highly conditioned fighters like Chuck and the great Bill "Superfoot" Wallace fighting like modern day knights (stunning form from Bill during his high kicks). Chuck is pure All American hero as usual and as a kid I instantly understood why he was so widely admired. Bill does a great job of being the bad guy and gave the film edge where it could have otherwise fallen short. The end fight sequence is still one of my favorites of all time, including the notorious conclusion.

Another highly enjoyable Norris movie around this golden age for Norris fans was Silent Rage. Pure candy to me as a kid. By the late '80s, his movies had less and less martial arts emphasis, so check out the early ones if you are into that aspect.
