Movie Reviews

One of Chuck's better film efforts
W. Russell | 10/02/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chuck Norris plays a detective haunted by a run-in with a serial killer that nearly cost him his life. That was a year ago, and he's now moving in with the therapist, pregnant with his baby, who helped him to deal with his encounter with the killer. But of course it isn't over. Through an apparently superhuman feat of strength, the killer escapes from prison and is back to murdering pretty young women. Chuck faces his fears and hunts the killer down.This movie was a pleasant change of pace from the typical twenty-against-one fight scenes, explosions, and full auto gunfights. Chuck's character is tougher than any of us, but in this movie he takes his lumps physically and emotionally. He leans on his girlfriend for emotional support, and at the end of the movie we see him wisely running from the killer (after putting up a respectable fight). Although it wasn't Nicholson or Hopkins material, it was probably one of the better performances tendered by a martial arts star."
Essential Chuck Norris Viewing

(3 out of 5 stars)

""Hero" Chuck Norris plays a police officer named Danny O'Brian who is haunted by his past run in with serial killer Simon Moon (The Terror). (...). There is a side story involving O'Brian's relationship with his ex-therapist. This tends to slow the movie in spots. As Chuck Norris fans we want to keep the action pace high. Hero and the Terror is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies though it has less martial arts and more suspense and story than you may expect from one of his movies. The quality of the DVD is very good. It contains both the widescreen and standard screen format with virtually no extras. That's OK considering the budget price of this MGM release. Hero and the Terror is an essential addition to a Chuck Norris movie library. Recommended viewing."
Simon Moon's a creepy dude
Stanley Runk | Camp North Pines | 03/09/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chuck's after a nasty serial killer again! It's the mute villian from Superman 3 playing a mute villian again! Is this actor really mute or just have cruddy delivery of his lines? You get to see Chuck's sensitive side, get to see him beat up a few bad guys(the movie wouldn't feel complete without that!), and get to see him lie to the press! This one also has Superfly as the mayor, and the muscular black dude from American Ninja!(I wish he had more screen time) The serial killer's name is Simon Moon, and he's not the kind of serial killer that outsmarts and plays with cops. He's actually kind of a moron, but watch out coz he'll break your neck, boy! Doesn't it seem like most famous movie stars have to do at least one movie involving the pursuit of a serial killer? All of this and more in Hero and the Terror! Invite the guys over for a weenie roast and beer and check this one out."
Hero faces his ultimate Terror.
Chadwick H. Saxelid | Concord, CA United States | 03/12/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chuck Norris plays Danny O'Brien, a police officer emotionally troubled by his run in with a fierce hulk of a psychopath named Simon Moon (played by Jack - Superman 2 - Halloran). When Moon escapes from a mental institution O'Brien must again face his deepest terror. Norris, as always, makes for a likable hero and director William Tannen pulls off some nice suspense sequences. This is arguably the best movie Norris made for the Cannon Group and is an essential in any fan's Chuck Norris collection."
