Audience Reviews for Breaker! Breaker!
Norris's first movie in the lead role proves he can kick ass as much as it proves he can't act but thats why we love him. Worth watching though just for the comical fight scene at the end, if only he'd had the classic beard though.
An entertainingly bad martial arts film. If all you want out of a film is Chuck Norris kicking ass then look no further than Breaker Breaker.
Breaker, Breaker is the touching story of the love two brothers share for each other, and the lengths one will go through in order to see... ehhhh, who am I fooling? This is a movie soley about Chuck Norris kicking in teeth. He's a truck driver you see, though not just a truck driver. He also is champion arm wrestler, karate fighter, and meditation instructor (known for wearing gold lame collars). His younger brother is also a truck driver (though he looks about 16), and one day he foolishly wanders into a town full of wanton corruption. When he tries to fight back, he winds up missing, and it's up to Chuck to get him back (sounds more serious than it is). The town, a location that looks eerily like an old west studio lot the Brady Bunch once visited, seems to specialize in dirt, because every single resident to a tee is covered in the stuff. As soon as Chuck gets there, he immediately tries to acclimate himself by rolling around in the dirt and dust (allegedly in an attempt to be "sneaky") as a means, I suppose of tricking the townsfolk he's just one of them. It doesnt' really work, except with a cute mama and her kid (who later in the movie will be fondled by the town's drunken judge). At this point, Chuck Norris beats up all the menfolk of the town (while all the ladies watch on, dreamily), and it's as funny as it sounds. Chuck though, shows no emotion as he throws kicks left and right. One thing that bothered me about this movie though, is how the cops threw up speed traps in a town that didn't seem to have any actual roads (though Chuck still manages somehow to drive his bad-assed van with the eagle's head painted on the side everywhere, seemingly incognito). The town's judge is probably the most interesting and over-the-top character: he's a cross between Boss Hogg and a creepy version of Brando's character in "Apocalypse Now". When he's not groping little boys, he's teaching crazy doll ladies to play chess. Also, when Chuck Norris gets shot in the stomach, it doesn't slow him down so much as mildly annoy him. In the end (SPOILER ALERT!), the truckers ride into town and RUN OVER THE ENTIRE TOWN IN THEIR BIG RIGS. **** for the laugh value, * for the film-making quality
