    "Lone Wolf McQuade" is part modern update of the Spaghetti Western, part buddy cop film, and filled to the brim with traditional 1980s action movie excess before that was really a thing. Lots of typical Norris elements here: Norris' "lone wolf" cop/marine/martial artist takes on sinister terrorists/mobsters/drug lords. He's often butting heads with military or police authority because he doesn't play by the book, and quite often he's forced into taking matters into his own hands because the bad guys…

    the story is not bad, but chuck norris is, as always. the actors around him saved his butt. he should have stuck with just his martial arts. but instead highlighting it in his movies, they stage it badly and only few and far in between. his movies are really a waste of time to watch. my dog has more talent then he dose.

    Norris holds his sawed-off shotgun like it's his dick and Carradine's license plate says "CARATE." Awesome shit.

    On the day I post this review, the night before was the heavily hyped (and I understand heavily disappointing; I did not watch a second of that clownshow) boxing fight between a fighter some don't like due to his conservative ways and how he has at least a few illegitimate children (Manny P.) and a man who has physically assaulted several women he was in a relationship with and never apologized for his actions (Floyd Mayweather). Between those two and…

    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…
