When Mr. Norris, the former karate champion, isn't using his feet on ill-tempered Indians and Mexicans, he's stomping on the facetious dialogue, which deserves it more.

Where to start with this movie? Where to end? Even more to the point, in which order to show the reels?

There are really only two good words to say about this wreck -- Melody Anderson.

...a palpably worthless relic of the 1980s.

Norris again fails to find a niche for his limited talent.

Audience Reviews for Firewalker

Chuck Norris' acting abilities are matched by some truly tacky production values in this jungle search for missing treasure.

Unfortunately, I've actually seen this. My dad is a Chuck Norris/Steven Seagal/Van Damme kinda guys (thank the Gods I didn't get his tastes!). As if Norris wasn't enough, Gossett was pretty bad as a side-kick.
