Grilled Chuck

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This Chuck Norris movie is notable for three things: being filmed in San Francisco, having Christopher Lee as the bad guy, and... Chuck Norris. Otherwise, it's a rather clunky affair, and far too long, with cop Chuck seeking revenge for the murder of his partner. His partner's TV reporter girlfriend is also killed, and Chuck hooks up with the cute TV news producer while looking for the bad guys. He gets into a few fights that are a bit too slow and overly-choreographed, but, hey, he's Chuck Norris. Kino Lorber gave this a Blu-ray release in 2015; director Steve Carver provides a commentary track, and there's a trailer.
