    Chuck Norris versus a midget that looks like Orson Welles and David Carradine wearing argyle. Violent, dumb and full of aerodynamic kicking. But it doesn't need to be 107 minutes long.

    The copycat Morricone score is laid on like chunky pasta sauce, so it has the feel of a Spaghetti Western even with its contemporary urban settings sitting alongside the desert locations. While there's plenty of gunplay, the final showdown is hand-to-hand, the Kung Fu adding another exotic layer to the standard cop actioner. Chuck's line deliveries are as stolid as ever, but he moves well. He's also given an advantage by acting opposite a sleepy, stilted David Carradine playing the…

    A better than usual Chuck Norris action film that wants to be a modern spaghetti western. Everything from the music to the copious use of extreme close ups to the basic story structure are borrowed wholesale from films like The Good The Bad and the Ugly. Of course this film is nowhere near as good but it's etill worlds better than most Norris movies. It helps that he's playing a decent character for once. He's actually quite good in this…

    In the days before faded action stars needed rampant self-acknowledgement to stay relevant they were making some pretty great movies and when I say “great” I mean as great as a Chuck Norris movie could possibly be; which is exactly what this film is. I’d be hard pressed to believe that anything else Norris was ever in could possibly be as good as Lone Wolf McQuade.

    While it’s not technically a Western it certainly feels like one; except that it’s…

    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 archetypical renegade Texas Ranger wages war against a drug kingpin with automatic weapons.
    A violent and below-average action thriller, a poor man's Dirty Harry.

    Lone Wolf McQuade is a a western only very thinly disguised as a modern day actioner: from the opening sequence, in which our lone ranger Chuck Norris takes on a gang of Mexican horse-thieves, over Francesco De Masi's glorious Morricone-ish score, to the Wild Bunch-style shootout, this is a movie that clearly has its heart more in 1883 than 1983.
    Given a decent budget, director Steve Carver delivers plenty of spectacular action sequences, including a scene in which Norris comes…

    Dammit, Chuck Norris, you just keep sneaking up on me, don't you? Every time I say I'm never going to watch one of your films again, I find one on Youtube or streaming somewhere. I keep giving you a chance, Chuck, I want to like you, I want to like your films, I do, but it isn't easy. Your films are often pretty bad. Sure they have their moments and the fights…

    Chuck Norris vs. David Carradine. You can not get much more bad ass than this.

    Well I wasn't ENTIRELY wrong about this being rated PG - looks like after initially getting an R, it got a PG on appeal and that's how it's stayed for...I dunno, maybe it still is. Looks like it got a rare (but not so rare, for a catalog title) R in Canada.

    The spaghetti-western approximations come thick n' fast in this movie, which would kinda-sorta go on to inspire Walker: Texas Ranger. Lots of action, which isn't very graphic and…

    "J.J. McQuade, you'll never change!"

    By pretty much every standard you can come up with, this movie is terrible.

    However, I am going to award it two stars because of the climactic action scene where Chuck Norris is running across an open area dodging bullets from David Carradine's Uzi until he can throw a single grenade to blow up an entire building.

    Because Chuck Norris.
