All of this inevitably culminates a martial arts showdown between the drug lord and the ranger, and involving the woman they both love.Written by

This Isn't Chuck At His Best, But It's Far From His Worst.
Chuck Norris and David Carradine make this one heck of an action movie by virtue of their performances, alone. It's dated, and in serious need of a remake, but above average for its time. While seriously dated, this film has become an institution among action fans, so if you are a fan of the genre and haven't seen this, you should really give it a viewing.
The performances and execution of this work are typical of the age, and the dialog is pretty stiff, especially when "at the station," but otherwise, it's a decent Chuck Norris film.
Some say it's his best. Unfortunately, I cannot agree with that assessment. He got better, as he grew more mature, in my opinion, but this is the first of the best, at any rate.
It rates a 6.8/10 from...
