    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 Morricine-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.

    The closest to a Chuck Norris spaghetti western ever made

    ★★ Added by Craig Hart

    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…

    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…

    Great great great theme song. I can't wait for Tarantino to use it in a way better movie.

    Chuck is not my boy.

    Originally intended for Kris Kristofferson, 'Lone Wolf McQuade' is a passable Chuck Norris vehicle - which is to say, it's one of his best films. While Norris is as wooden as ever, he is at least playing a character of sorts, and the action is plentiful and in parts quite decently executed. John Milius was an uncredited co-writer, which probably explains the numerous similarities with Walter Hill's later film 'Extreme Prejudice' (1987).

    Before he moved on to doing Cannon Films(straight toward the company's very end in 1994),Chuck Norris did this PG-rated Texas-set actioner that is pretty much the prelude to his WALKER,TEXAS RANGER TV series(that was popular in the 90s[and kept Norris' career active]),with Norris as the title tough guy ranger who is divorced,unshaven,unbathen,owns a pet wolf,and loves drinking beer as much as he loves karate kicking the bad guys whom he apprehends. His latest villain to take on is David Carradine,who…

    Continuing my Chuck Norris "marathon". I've seen this movie 10-20 times as a kid and it still totally holds up. It's a trashy homage to Sergio Leone. Of course, the story is nonsensical and it drags a bit. Barbara Carrera's character makes zero sense. But, the style and the badassery of this movie is what puts it over the top. It's even rated PG! As a kid, I remember hearing a few F-bombs and I was right. They're still in…

    Chuck Norris's films take place in a world where the 2nd Amendment was written for good ol' fashioned decent men, and the 5th was written for commie liberal pansies. To be perfectly frank, it can be fun to visit this wonderful land once in a while, if only because it bears so little resemblance to our own. The problem is that I don't think Chuck (or the film around him) realizes that...

    'Lone Wolf McQuade' is stuck in the awkward…

    JJ "Lone Wolf" McQuade (Chuck Norris) is a no-nonsense, two-fisted, super-macho Texas Ranger who always gets the job done, usually with a disdain for standard operating procedures, but always within his own "code of ethics" (which seems to consist of shoot first and shoot to kill). Rawley Wilkes (David Carradine) is a villain as evil and vicious as they come, whose operation consists of delivering stolen military hardware and weaponry to terrorist organisations. When McQuade's daughter Sally (Dana Kimmell) is…

    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…
