Chuck Norris' best role ever. Spaghetti Western in 1980's Texas (by havana-2)
Chuck Norris was clean shaven until this role, and since it he hasn't shaved his beard. From this movie, Norris' hit t.v. show Walker Texas Ranger is based.JJ McQuade Chuck Norris is a Lone Wold renegade Texas Ranger. He is unstoppable, using karate kicks and uzi's to hose down the enemy. He is a divorced father, who takes care of his daughter, yet has enough time for a love affair with the stunning Barbara Carrera.This is also the first movie where Robert Beltran of Star Trek fame is featured. Also in this movie are David Carradine and Leon Isaac Kennedy. So the cast is great, <more>
the story is tight, the music by Francesco De Masi is amazing, and the action is constant.This is a must see for any action fan, it also makes good viewing at home with a beer and a date, because there is a lot of romance in it as well.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Certainly Chucks greatest along with The Delta Force, this film has very few flaws. From the outset we see the hard and rugged Chuck fight it out with style and humour. The joy within this film is yet again a credit to Norris. The best scene's involve the uzi scene his face as he spins round - utter comedy , the line "No one's ever killed a Texas Ranger", the crazy little guy, THE SHEER DELIGHT as he drives his car out of the ground and the great end fight scene where Carradine camps it up no end. The what would normally be haunting music only adds to the fun of this <more>
film...the only time I didnt laugh is when they shot his dog!
This movie was great. Chuck Norris was perfect for the rolebecause of his karate skills and the music was just so great. Maybe they should make a sequel for this.
Definitely Chuck Norris's best flick! (by DaMads2)
What can I say? This one is a classic!! My all time favorite movie is John Carpenter's Escape from New York with Kurt Russell. Lone Wolf McQuade falls into the same genre of early 80's action movies. I saw this movie when I was a kid and thought to myself, "wow-that desert place looks cool as hell". Well now I live in El Paso.Everything about this movie is great. It has it all. Killer fistfights, beer, explosions, gunfights, awesome scenery, an evil midget, more beer, and one damn fine senorita' played by Barbera Carrera. The fight at the end between Norris and Carradine <more>
is one of the best on film. It's up there with the fight in Roadhouse, and in Die Hard. If you like good ole' fashioned kick ass action. This is your movie!!! A Chuck Norris masterpiece!
Contains Spoiler!! I'm a big fan of action movies and this has to be one of my all time favorites. After having his dog shot, his best friend killed and his daughter kidnapped, you can tell Chuck is gonna dish out some punishment. Some might say that the fight scene at the end was a bit short; not me. If there's one word to describe that scene, its REALISTIC. Real bare knuckle fights don't go on for 10-20min. I love the stand-off between David Carradine and Chuck Norris, and the theme music is very powerful it seems to resemble the "Once Upon a Time in the West" theme . <more>
The best bit of the movie is the final fight scene and when Chuck's girlfriend gets shot. That scene is only about 5minutes in total, but mate, It was well done. The super-charged Dodge is a MUST-SEE!
Great action movie with rugged hero (by khouston86)
This is, as many have noted here, the best Chuck Norris movie. The characters are interesting, the desert landscape is beautiful and amazing, the story is good, and the leading lady is gorgeous. Ranger McQuade kicks butt with an attitude in this one, and he doesn't apologize for being a slob who likes beer. His "dog" is also really a wolf, and figures in the story. Norris isn't a Texan, I don't think, but he does just fine as a Texan here, and as a Texas Ranger the most legendary law enforcement agency the world has ever known . His retired Ranger buddy is great, too. <more>
Kind of similar to Extreme Prejudice with Nick Nolte, but far superior. If you want an entertaining action movie, check this one out.
The previous posters comments about this film say something about the reviewer. Um...Chuck Norris and David Carradine??...what kind of movie did you expect with two KNOWN martial arts stars in it? High Plains Drifter? This movie ranks as probably one of Chuck Norris' best action films of his career and was certainly the basis for his very successful series character "Walker, Texas Ranger". With this movie we saw Chuck change from his old image of the blonde, California boy to the dark haired, bearded, tough guy Chuck we know today. Chuck's movies took on a slightly tougher <more>
edge from this film forward i.e. Invasion USA, Code of Silence . And who can fault the addition of "grasshopper" himself David Carradine to the mix? A major casting coup for the film. Carradine camps it up as a drug smuggling, karate champ who taunts and ultimately tries to kill Texas Ranger McQuade. The dialogue and action are typical of the genre and the time period but for some reason this film stands the test of time like some of the John Wayne westerns of old. Chuck clearly wished to set himself in that "lone, lawman, hero" mold of Wayne with this film.There is one shot in the opening sequence where McQuade walks into frame in silhouette with the sun behind him, bearing down on his enemy that is right out of the classic westerns of the 50's. That's the money shot of the film. Robert Beltrane of "Star Trek: Voyager" fame does a nice, early career stint here as the hapless, partner who forced to tag along on McQuade's heels, but who saves the day in some small way. Much like Tyne Daly did to Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry in "The Enforcer".And you just can't beat the final showdown between Carradine & Norris, which ranks right up there with Chuck's other famous duel with Bruce Lee. It's Action Cinema Gold.All in all, a great little film for people who like action heroes.
Learning a thing or two from spaghetti westerns (by unbrokenmetal)
Among all Chuck Norris movies I've watched so far, there were a few I rather liked especially "Missing In Action" was so hilarious they had to quote it in "Hot Shots 2" , but "Lone Wolf McQuade" is the first time I actually loved every minute. I confess. There are many good reasons for it, though. Already in the opening scene, I noticed the excellent music by Francesco De Masi. The guitars, bells, trumpets, harmonicas are straight from the school of spaghetti western and turn every close-up into larger-than-life drama. David Carradine is a opponent way ahead <more>
of the villains Chuck battled in other flicks. Barbara Carrera "Never Say Never Again" catches the eye as a widow falling in love with Chuck. The story is intentionally or not kept as basic as possible: hero meets bad guys, tries a solution with violence, doesn't work, tries MORE violence, then it works. Much in this movie defies reason and logic, but don't ask "why?", just view it as a kind of ritualistic fantasy western in a modern day decoration, thus it can be great fun. And you learn a lot of useful things, for example: you can revive a seemingly dead and definitely buried man with two cans of beer. And don't miss one of the first computer hacking scenes in film history, you won't believe your eyes.
In one of his very best vehicles, Chuck Norris plays Texas Ranger J.J. McQuade, a solitary man with his own way of doing things. In this tale he must do battle with a nefarious arms dealer, Rawley Wilkes David Carradine . His boss tries to saddle him with a partner, nicknamed "Kayo" Robert Beltran . J.J. is naturally resistant to this arrangement, but Kayo is determined to prove himself worthy. J.J. also finds himself another ally when F.B.I. agent Jackson Leon Isaac Kennedy shows his own willingness to not do things strictly by the book.The decision by director Steve Carver <more>
who'd previously worked with Chuck on the formulaic but fun "An Eye for an Eye" and his filmmaking company to play this like a Spaghetti Western is an inspired choice. Carver directs with a real flair, the rural scenery is breathtaking to behold, the action scenes are extremely well executed, and the Chuck vs. Carradine title fight is an irresistible hook. Certainly one man who understands the tone of the whole thing is composer Francesco De Masi, whose score is just perfect.What's nice to see is that Carradine, who often slummed in B fare and basically phoned in his performances, makes for a truly effective villain here. He actually looks like he's enjoying playing this over confident, egomaniacal creep. Much eye candy is supplied by the luscious Barbara Carrera, who has the role of Wilkes's uneasy "partner". Chuck and Carrera do have some sexy scenes together. Beltran is fine as the eager beaver young cop who is initially something of a nuisance but who will prove his worth by the end. Much praise goes to the uniformly solid supporting cast, including such luminaries as L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, Sharon Farrell, and William Sanderson. The lovely Dana Kimmell of "Friday the 13th Part III" fame plays Chucks' frequently imperiled daughter. Daniel Frishman has the most delicious role in the picture as the diminutive crook Falcon; this is another guy who looks like he's having a good time.Rough, tough, and rousing, "Lone Wolf McQuade" makes for completely agreeable entertainment, delivering to us a finale that we can savour. Chuck and Carradine performed the stunts themselves, to the chagrin of the producers.This would make a fine double bill with "Code of Silence", another of Chucks' best features.Eight out of 10.
