Lone Wolf McQuade
The 'Mad Dog' Criminal...The 'Lone Wolf' Lawman...The Ultimate Showdown.
The archetypical renegade Texas Ranger wages war against a drug kingpin with automatic weapons, his wits and martial arts after a gun battle leaves his partner dead. All of this inevitably culminates a martial arts showdown between the drug lord and the ranger, and involving the woman they both love.
This is Chuck Norris in full on, pissed off, one man army mode.
And it fucking rocks.
Dr. Seuss once said, "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." He obviously hadn't met Chuck Norris. Here is a man willing to risk his job, his ex-wife, his daughter, and even his hard-earned refrigerator of beer in the pursuit of criminals. Not just any criminals - they are cocaine-running, tank-smuggling, karate-wielding criminals - the sort of criminals that represent the most primordial part of our collective human psyche.
In this masterpiece, we are assaulted with the basest of emotions, and reminded of the experiences of infancy: learning to walk, learning to speak, and learning to kick butt. The lead character is a man of few words. His…
Only Chuck Norris is allowed to keep a wolf as a pet. Only Chuck Norris can still drive his car while it's buried underground. Never throw away Chuck's beer. Chuck has the most amazing car. No one beats Chuck Norris in hand to hand combat. Texas Ranger Chuck is the best. He rides alone. Maybe he likes having a partner. He takes out gangs of baddies on his own and well, he knows how to throw a grenade.
Yeah! This was my first Chuck Norris (outside of the Expendables) experience! I know how awesome he is and I look forward seeing more stuff from him. Lone Wolf MCQuade was a great start!
Reto Chuck Norris, Primera Estación (como en el Via Crucis): curioso predecesor de la muy superior "Traición Sin Límites" de Walter Hill pero con Chuck Vs Kunfú.... digooo ..... David Carradine.
The opening scene has Norris scouting out some horse rustlers. On cue with the music swell, he gets up and into frame comes his Texas Ranger star. He then goes to the back of his truck to get his rifle and vest. The vest has another star on it. He is literally wearing two stars at this point. He then goes back to his position, but not before closing his truck door to reveal yet another Texas Ranger star.
This is obvious symbolism to show he is three times the lawman.
"Where is my beer?"
I never cared for Chuck Norris. If anything I thought he was immensely overrated. He always was the guy who just for inexplicable reasons was able to do anything. He just wasn't as cool as let's say Schwarzenegger or Stallone and most definitely didn't act in very interesting films. I don't think I have a single film starring Chuck Norris on my nearly 2000 titles long watchlist.
This film is like a buddycop film without the jokes, with a running time that's way too long and pretty underwhelming action scenes.
I didn't really care for the general plot and was depending on the characters and action scenes to entertain me. None of the main characters had…
Chuck Norris is so badass.
"JJ McQuade you'll never change." I certainly hope not.
Caught this as the second bill of a Chuck Norris double bill at the New Bev. I had zero expectations. This movie blew me away. Part spaghetti western, part 80's renegade cop movie. Chuck Norris spends most of the movie shooting his gun shirtless and drinking beer. There is a scene where he is buried alive with his nitro fueled ford bronco that needs to be seen to be believed. Also one of the bad guys is a maniacally laughing little person and the other bad guy is David Carradine who performs karate in an argyle sweater. What more do you need?
Lone Wolf McQuade is most likely Chuck Norris' greatest work, and a precursor to his most famous role on Walker, Texas Ranger. Sure, being a top-tier Norris film isn't saying much, but Lone Wolf McQuade is such a guilty pleasure.
With a nod to spaghetti westerns, an Ennio Morricone-esque score, and oozing with as much machismo as possible, the plot is anything but important. It drags a bit in spots, but the rest is a kick-ass bonanza... especially in the third act, when Norris, renewed with vengeance, takes on a dastardly David Carradine in a martial arts showdown that doesn't involve stunt doubles.
I love me some chucky cheese goodness!
The closest to a Chuck Norris spaghetti western ever made
The spaghetti western of Chuck Norris movies, with Chuck here as proto-Walker, maverick Texas Ranger J.J. McQuade, fighting for justice in the American southwest against banditos culled directly from Peckinpah westerns, through the medium of his booted feet, sawed-off shotgun, his pet wolf, and his super-charged Ford Bronco that apparently never has its lights off. He, his ex-wife, and daughter all live in El Paso, though his wife and daughter are planning a move to Las Cruces (which they make sound like the end of the earth, as opposed to say, 25 miles away). In the course of dealing desert justice, he runs afoul of arms dealer/martial artist Rawley Wilkes (played by Keith Carradine), who is robbing federal arms shipments…
How is this not a Cannon film? Chuck Norris as a doesn't-play-by-the-rules Texas Ranger saddled with a rookie cop for a partner and a boss who is constantly threatening to take his badge. Have we hit all the clichés yet? There are some nice character things: Norris's character is maybe the filthiest slob in any action movie ever, who violently resists his love interest's attempt to tidy up his pig sty (referenced in Lethal Weapon 2 with Joe Pesci as the love interest). A decent if not memorable 80s action flick, notable really for only two things: the badass theme song, with whistling and wordless singing, that sounds ripped off from a dozen Morricone themes; and the smirking performance of David Carradine as the villain—a man born to play bad guys in 80s films.
Great great great theme song. I can't wait for Tarantino to use it in a way better movie.
Chuck is not my boy.
Found these lists (twelve total which I've compiled) a couple years back and they slowly became my bible for weird…
