Movie Reviews

This is an excellent Chuck Norris film! I feel his best!
John Bennett | Springfield, Illinois | 02/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel An Eye for An Eye was Chuck's best out of all of his martial art films. The story was excellent and sad in the beginning of the film. The film picks up when Norris displays his spectacular skills on a group of Triad Drug villians. The cast is excellent with good performances from Richard Roundtree and Christopher Lee. Excellent Martial Art fight scenes including Norris facing off with Professor Toru Tanaka. This man is mean and huge. An excellent martial arts film."
It's Revenge Plot 101, but if isn't broke don't fix it.

"When policeman Chuck Norris's partner is killed in a drug bust gone bad, the former karate champ goes on the rampage, kicking in the teeth of all that get in his way. Hey, wasn't this the plot of Forced Vengeance? Well, yes it is. But where that movie was passable chop sokey hokum, An Eye for An Eye gets a little boost from a better cast (you could not beat having Christopher Lee and Richard Roundtree in the same movie) and the picturesque backdrop of the San Francisco setting. It just seemed to work a little bit better this time around. Recommended for those who like movies with a little kick to them."
Corny, but fun...

"I want to give this movie 4 stars. Mainly because it has Mako, and Prof. Toru Tanaka. But without Chuck's 'stache...I can't. In all seriousness though. this movie is actually one of my favorites by Chuck. It's got a touch of the dectective story to it. The acting is better than usual in a chuck Norris flick. And, most importantly, the fight scenes are good.

I can't speak for anyone else, but when it comes to martial arts films, one thing matters above all else and that's fight scene choreography. Of course different eras and styles have different standards. As far as American martial arts, Chuck is still the standard in my opinion...all due respect to Billy Blanks, Cynthia Rothrock, et al. This title, along with a few others, show Chuck's prowess as a martial artist in a way that later became lost in an array of spinning back fists, round house kicks and cheesy scripts (can anyone say, "The President's Man"?).

Overal this movie is fun, with some good fight scenes and a memorable performance by the Professor. Definately worth a view!!"
Excellent action movie but why not in Wide Screen ?

"First of all, MGM released 3 Chuck norris titles at the same day. This one, Invasion USA, and Lone Wolf mcQuade but MGM opted to release this as full screen and the other 2 in WS. What is the logic behind that? This movie is everybit as good as the other 2 and should have been treated the same way.The movie itself is excellent as the title suggests it is about revenge. The fight scenes are great and Chuck Norris performance is very good. The full screen picture is quite sharp and the sound is in mono. Considering the price, this DVD still a must have for Norris fans."
