This red-baiting action film stars Chuck Norris as Matt Hunter, a retired CIA agent who lives in the Florida Everglades. A communist invasion of Miami brings Hunter out of retirement to fight the encroaching hordes led by everyone's favorite low-budget bad guy, Richard Lynch. The film is extremely jingoistic, presenting the evil communists staging an invasion on Christmas, demolishing a church, and attempting to blow up a school bus full of children. From the same school of thinking which produced Rambo and Red Dawn, this film at least features some convincing gore by makeup wizard Tom Savini (Friday the 13th), working on his third gig for director Joseph Zito. Zito and Savini returned with Red Scorpion. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

04/13/2008If you want to know why those goofy quotes about Chuck Norris are circulating in such large numbers on the internet...you know, like "many people wear Superman pajamas...but Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas" or "Chuck Norris has counted to infinity...twice," then you need to watch this movie, which really is the epitome as to the type of caliber of productions Norris associated himself with throughout most of his film career. Awful in every way possible, this film is so poorly done that you actually will find it hysterically funny. But that is why I like this movie, and I'm sure its the same for other fans of his films as well. I'm not quite sure I'll ever understand how Chuck landed his movie roles (other than his cameo appearance in Bruce Lee's 'Return of the Dragon'), but I guess if he hadn't we wouldn't have all his atrocious movies to keep us light of humor. I really like Chuck and had my picture taken with him when I was a kid, and I think he is a genuinely good person, but I really must admit that I'm not sure if movies were what he was cut out for. Apparently, there are many movie studios, some of which I would imagine are out of business, that would disagree with me.
