Movie Info

Though the direction of Hellbound is sometimes erroneously credited to editor Michael J. Duthie, the actual director was Aaron Norris, brother of the film's star, Chuck Norris. The story begins with the ritualistic murder of a Chicago rabbi. Detectives Shatter (Norris) and Jackson (Calvin Levels) are assigned to the case, and are compelled to follow the trail of evidence all the way to Israel (where the film was lensed in its entirety...even the Chicago sequences). Once in the Holy Land, Shatter and Jackson discover that the murderer is a centuries-old supernatural entity, a malevolent creature determined to "cleanse" the world. The premise is workable and Norris is in fine form, but the dialogue in Hellbound is too Ed Wood Jr.-esque. (Wait until you hear that conversation about a missing heart!) Filmed in 1992, Hellbound went directly to video in 1994.

It's Chuck Norris... Need I say more? Get ready, to go to Hell and... Well, mainly just to Hell... If you come back, consider yourself lucky. The Story: Get ready... Two Chicago cops travel to Israel to prevent the resurrection of Satan... I'll repeat it in case you didn't catch it the first time. Two Chicago cops travel to Israel to prevent the resurrection of Satan... Yeah... Whatever you're thinking, I think it's pretty safe to say I thought the same damn thing... It's not really stylish, it's not really well written, it's not really fast paced, it's not really even close to being plausible, it's not really good, it's not really even mediocre... But what it is, is a film starring CHUCK F***ING NORRIS! The Cast: CHUCK F***ING NORRIS!... As it's impossible to say anything bad about Chuck, I feel the urge to say this... He does what he does, and he does it how he usually does it... Kicking ass, by round house kicking people in the face... Oh, there's some other people in the movie, but they don't really matter because they're well, for lack of a better phrase, "not Chuck Norris". One to Five Scale: 2 It's great for a laugh, but it's so slow paced, you don't really see the legend himself kicking ass until the last 20 minutes or so... So if you should happen to come across this one by some strange turn of events, just skip the first hour or so... Because we all know, you're only watching it to see Chuck Norris kick some demon ass.
