SIDEKICKS!11!!1!!!!!!

I watched Delta Force 2 on AMC the other night. Who knew it became and AMERICAN MOVIE CLASSIC? Anyways, I watched it, and thought it was excellent. Well, at least on an 80's escapism level. If it were released now, it would be called, well, Collateral Damage.

The truth is that Chuck peaked in his film debut as Bruce Lee's opponent in Way of the Dragon (aka Return of the Dragon).

All downhill after that.

My favorite is in "Return of the Dragon" where Bruce Lee kicks his ass, then kills him.

Yeah, where's the option for Way/Return of the Dragon? I surprised at it's lack of inclusion.

Code of Silence (1985) is a 4 star movie, Norris proves he is the no nonsense action hero like Charles Bronson.

The majority of Chuck Norris films, he portrayed the stereotypical heroic, law enforcement anti-crime characters. So it's very difficult to determine which is the superior movie that he starred in, because basically his portrayals were very similar according to the genre of his movies.

In real life, he is deeply involved in his christianity and personally love God, which is a wonderful thing.

Return of the Dragon, albeit only a supporting role. In a starring role, I would pick Code of Silence.

Sorry, never considered Chuck an "actor" in any role I've seen him in!
