All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

The surrounding cast makes An Eye For An Eye worth watching, and the frequent action scenes make it easy to look past Norris' cardboard-y dramatic acting.

Under the Radar

Aside from a few random smatterings of chop-socky daring-do, there's not one single thing about this movie worth sitting through.

Audience Reviews for An Eye for an Eye

An Eye for an Eye 1981, the action is once again a massive step up from the last Norris movie with guns etc. Being added to the mix with plenty of the classic roundhouse kicks too. My only issue with the films was that Norris sports no facial hair what so ever!!! Even the tash has been sheared off!!

This is one of those 70s/80s cop drama/action flicks with a far-fetched storyline....and I enjoyed it very much. My only complaint was the middle portion of the film where the was little action to be had and spent a lot more time fleshing out the plot. I still recommend it for a fun action movie though.

The acting isn't the best, especially Mako's performance is really awful, but it has some decent action. Apart from the Chuck Norris's fumble, some of the fight scenes are very good, especially those fights near the end. The story is very simple, but it has good atmosphere, so it never bores.
