One of the better Chuck Norris action flicks

Atlantic City Weekly

Typical early-career Norris chop-socky cop stuff.

Audience Reviews for Good Guys Wear Black


A bit too long and somewhat lame action movie with Chuck Norris doing his best in trying to act seriously but not being that convincing. This brought lots of action, thrills, suspense and good fights.
My favourite scene is outside the airport where the hired assassin was taken out after Booker's girlfriend (Anne Archer) was killed in the plane bomb and Booker (Norris) went after him before he got into the Toyota Celica, and tried to run over Booker. In which Booker returned and delivered the awesome flying dropkick to the windshield killing the assassin. I later found out that the stunt was done by his brother Aaron.

Another good Chuck movie for his fans. You have to be a fan of his cause he cant act. Over all a good action flick.

I'll give this one 4 stars, if for nothing other than his pimp shades he's rockin throughout the movie. This one is Mr. Roundhouse at his finest.
