It's Nice to see Chuck back out on the Streets & tracking Bad Guys.
He even fights a Bad Guy who Kicks-His-A@#, pretty well.
But, of course, Chuck sends The Guy "Out" , with style.
It's kinda cool seeing Bernie Koeppel as "The (Diamond) Cutter" . . .
Remember Him ? >"That girl" >>"Love Boat">>>If not, where were You in the 60s and 70s?
Now , in His 80s ; it's just good to see the old guy get a job.
Joanna Pacula had Her place in lots of 90s movies.
So, this is "PopCORN~entertainment".
But, Hey . . . This Guy fought Bruce Lee ; so, give Him a chance.
i guess all those "Excercise Machine" commercials don't pay Him what He's worth.
Don't take it seriously, just get with the Martial Arts.

"Chuck Norris is back in a real movie. He's a private investigator specialized in locating missing people and when a Jewish diamond cutter is kidnapped, his daughter comes to Chuck for help.
"The Cutter" is no masterpiece but it's an entertaining movie and above average for production company Nu Image Entertainment, whose movies sometimes suffer from incoherent writing. Chuck Norris fans will be pleased to see Chuck, and the rest of the cast make a good job too.
It's an entertaining movie, but perhaps not one you'd want to watch again and again. Chuck Norris fans would want to have this movie in their collection. Anyone else looking for 90 minutes of entertainment, rent it."
Good chuck movie

I was sitting not to long ago and realized hey I have a review of a Steven Seagal movie and a couple Van Dam movies, and a Wesley Snipes movie review, were is Chuck. And by Chuck I mean Chuck Norris, any one who got to train with and be in a movie with Bruce Lee is cool with me. So I decided that the first one of his movies my brother could name would be the one I would review, I wish he could have chosen a little better. This movie has got to be one of his worst movies he has ever made, this direct to DVD feature is not a classic in any sense of the word. Well any way he named this one so I went into the collection and sure enough there it was, DVD player here we come.
The story is simple enough, Norris is a retired cop who is now a p.i. and out and about solving cases his way. Of course that does not leave him looking to good to the police and most of them hate him, so naturally he rebels against the very people he used to work for. And after a case he is on goes wrong he takes another case looking for a diamond cutter, hence the title. And that is pretty much it and that seems pretty simple right, could have even been an episode of his old TV show Walker. But unfortunately that is almost what it is, it seems like it could have been better as a TV movie, maybe the USA network could have done something with this.
Don't get it wrong it is not a horrible film, there is some to like about this movie. Norris portrays his character well enough to make it believable, and even the action is pretty good as well. Bruce Haskett seemed like he was trying to write a decent film, maybe with a better budget this could have been a pretty good action flick. Same could be said about director William Tannen who did what he could I `am sure with what he had. Of course I should have expected a low budget flick like this coming from producers Avi Lerner and Boaz Davidson. Both of these guys have no doubt produced some winners at the box office you may remember both from Rambo, but mostly direct to DVD. You may remember both from almost every direct to DVD Steven Seagal & Van Dam & Wesley Snipes movies.
The bad thing about this movie is that it is not to memorable, after it was over I really didn't remember any scenes from it or any of the performers from it except Norris. Not all of the actors were bad, but they didn't stand out either. The worst I can say about this film is that after it is over you probably won't watch it again, and at best it is not the worst movie ever. The action was decent even though Norris is a bit older now my friends, it was still decent.
