Guest review by Trevor.  Chuck Norris and Mako take on a criminal organization that is controlled by Christopher Lee!  No, you do not get to see Chuck Norris leap-kick Christopher Lee (though Chuck does kick Professor Toru Tanaka through a table).

Thanks very, very much for publishing this, Andrew.  Smile

I actually got quite emotional this morning when I saw it online for the first time: I started writing in 1992 and it has been a long hard road to get to where I have my work recognized and published. Now that it has been not only recognized but published too, everyone will have to line up and smack me to get the smile off my face.  TeddyR

Thanks once again, Andrew! I will drink your health with a ice-cold glass of Coke and...yeah, some fine South African chocolates too.  TeddyR

I was very lucky to have worked with Mako in 2000 on the Wonderful Wizard of Oz radio project -- He played the King of the Flying Monkeys.  The IMDB shows only a fraction of his work, as he did so many indie projects as well -- Yeah, this is a great genere picture, as these things go -- You're right to focus on the cast-value here -- you get a lot of bang for your buck!

 Smile Thanks, Peter J.  Thumbup

I've just noticed something really funny ~ I've never seen still pictures of this film before and it looks like Stevens' office and Canfield's office are in the same building!  TeddyR

I did see this and I found it to be relatively dull compared to my usual fare of overthetop action movies. Mission in Action II, Invasion USA, and The Delta Force are superior among Chuck's own library.

Maybe I was tired when I watched it. It wasn't un-entertaining altogether, just a bit meh. The one AWESOME bit is in the final battle when Chuck starts doing slo-mo kicks on Professor Oddjob and they sound like Star Wars lasers. I guess another awesome factor was having Chuck Norris, the guy who played Oddjob, and Christopher Lee in the same movie. Wait, I WAS tired. I think I like this movie. A LOT.

I'm looking for the name of a Chuck Norris film, wherein if I remember correctly someone tells Chuck the meaning of the word expedience and the word is used incessantly throughout the movie.This may be it,that red sweater looks awfully familiar,but it's been years since I saw it......anyone who knows what i'm talking about please post comment thx

It's been quite a while since this review was published here but, almost two years down the line, it still gives me a major thrill to see my work published. Thanks again to Andrew ~ my first publisher ~ for this.  Smile Thumbup

Thank you again for writing it!  I don't think that I had seen this film before doing the work to publish your review.

I think that movie is the what-the-hell-I'll-just-jump-through-a-windshield classic known as Good Guys Wear Black.

I've just bought my fourth version of this film (I have one on VHS and three on DVD) in the hope that I would find the cinema version I saw in 1981 which contains a hot 'n heavy shower scene between Mr Norris and Maggie Cooper - even the South African censors allowed that through but that scene doesn't appear on any of the versions I have. Oh well: still my favourite film of all time, whatever the version.  TeddyR

I was wondering to myself "Who wrote this review?" then I remembered that it was me.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
