A good cold war thriller, The Killer Elite stars James Caan and Robert Duvall in this Sam Peckinpah flick. Excellent martial arts scenes as well. Good supporting roles from Mako, Bo Hopkins and Burt Young.

A Force of One

A Chuck Norris classic from 1979. Bill “Superfoot” Wallace also has a big presence in this film. For the star power, Jennifer O’Neill does quite nicely. Eric Laneuville plays Norris’ adopted son, in his second martial arts film (the first was 1974’s Black Belt Jones), and later appeared in “St. Elsewhere.”

So Close

Two sisters used their murdered parents technology to first avenge their deaths and then become high prices assassins. You know, that old chestnut. Through various plot twists, another attractive young asian female, this time a police detective, becomes involved (and I use the term involved on multiple levels) with the sisters and ends up teaming up with one to take down the real bad guys, and yes, once again revenge is involved. The movie has beautiful cinematography and the fight sequences are a joy to watch.

Lone Wolf McQuade

Before there was Walker Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris was the rougher, dirtier Texas Ranger J.J. McQuade. He takes on evil drug cartels in Mexico with the added bonus villian of David Carradine. Star Trek fans will recognize a young Robert Beltran, who was in the worst of the Trek shows, ST: Lost in Space (also known as Voyager).

A martial arts film this time, Circle of Iron

The original story came from Bruce Lee, was to star him and one of his students, James Coburn. Another student of Lee’s, Sterling Silliphant finally got it film.
Although with David Carridine in the role Lee was to play. This martial arts film actually has plot, and a message. Just remember that Bruce Lee majored in philosophy in college.

democrat Rep. Jackson, Jr. (son of the racial blackmailer Jesse Jackson, Sr.) threatened Nebraska Rep. Lee Terry with physical violence on the floor of the House after letting “loose a profanity-filled tirade.”

Rep. Jackson is a practicing Martial Artist and speaking as a Yodan myself, did not do his Sifu any credit by his attempt to escalate to physical violence
