Movie Info

To say that Chuck Norris is the star of Force of One may smack of redundancy. Norris is cast as Vietnam vet Matt Logan, assigned to instruct a big-city narcotics squad in the intricacies of martial arts. His star pupil turns out to be Detective Mandy Rust (Jennifer O'Neill). Initially disinterested in law enforcement, Logan is galvanized into action when his adopted son is killed by the villains.

Audience Reviews for A Force of One

Mix of crime and martial arts showcase for Chuck Norris with a tidy conclusion as the guilty parties will be brought to justice and Logan is allowed to get his revenge. Interesting decision to shoot combat between Norris and his opposition in slow motion (opening an opportunity for scrutiny such as Bill Wallace's elbow clearly missing Norris' face, yet he reacts jarringly anyway as if he did), inside and outside the ring. Known as a follow-up to Good Guys Wear Black, neither film resemble each other in any way either in content or characters.
The acting is not bad. Chuck Norris is very good here, while he was somewhat wooden at times, he was a lot of fun to watch, and did a credible job for the most part! Jennifer O'Neill is very good here, she had good chemistry with Norris, and was very likable. Clu Gulager is a great character actor and was excellent as the detective. Bill Wallace is terrible acting wise, but shows off his outstanding martial art skills.
