This movie is so bad, it's good.

Forced Vengeance is another example of an one of those movies that would be unwatchable were it not for all the hilarious scenes. This TBS regular is the story of ex-soldier turned casino security guard, Josh Randall (Norris), who takes on a Hong Kong Syndicate single-handedly after his boss and friend, Sam Paschal (Opatoshu), is murdered by a rival casino owner. (If that in itself doesn't spell hilarity, I don't know what does.) Along with his deadpan narration, this film truly showcases Norris' acting prowess. :) This combined with the incredibly trite dialog leads to some of the funniest moments in the film. "He's sick, verrry sick..." says Randall matter-of-factly to some Hong Kong locals as he kidney-punches a corrupt Inspector who's been hounding him and stuffs him into a car. It just doesn't get any better than this, folks. I love this movie. There are so many funny moments it's worth watching over and over. And I guarantee you'll be quoting some of Randall's lines for weeks afterwards if you give it a chance.

Quite good...

I happened to stumble upon the 1982 movie "Forced Vengeance" by random chance here in 2024. And with it being an older Chuck Norris movie that I hadn't already seen, much less actually knew existed, of course I opted to sit down and watch the movie. And oh wow, well I didn't know that Chuck Norris had made and recorded a movie in Hong Kong, prior to watching this movie. So that was quite a nice surprise.

The storyline, from writers Franklin Thompson and James Fargo, was good. It was an entertaining movie to watch, despite it oozing with generic early 1980s action and martial arts movies tropes. But hey, that just made "Forced Vengeance" all the more enjoyable in my opinion.

"Forced Vengeance" is brought to life on the screen by a good cast ensemble and some good acting performances. Of course you know what you get with Chuck Norris, and he does carry the movie quite nicely. It was also quite a nice treat to see the likes of Michael Cavanaugh and Bob Minor on the cast list.

There are a fair amount of action and fighting scenes throughout the course of the movie. Just as you would expect from a Chuck Norris movies. And the action and fighting is nicely brought to the screen, as it is nicely choreographed and executed. So that definitely added something good and enjoyable to the overall impression of "Forced Vengeance".

If you enjoy Chuck Norries movies, then "Forced Vengeance" is definitely a movie that is well-worth sitting down and spending 90 minutes on watching. I was genuinely entertained throughout the course of the entire movie.

My rating of director James Fargo's 1982 movie "Forced Vengeance" lands on a seven out of ten stars.

"Chuck Norris kicks the hell out of people in Hong Kong!"

This is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies. It has one of the best opening scenes ever with the silhouette of Chuck fighting an unknown adversary over a neon background. It looks fantastic and is such an innovative opening scene that really creates a cool atmosphere.

Josh Randall (Chuck Norris) is an ex-Special Forces Vietnam veteran who ends up in Hong Kong after the war, eventually becoming the head of security for the Lucky Dragon Casino, run by fellow American expatriate, Sam Pascal. When Sam is killed by an unscrupulous rival, Josh goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge.The film is well paced with plenty of Chuck-related ass whupping and doesn't skimp on the violence either. When Chuck's girlfriend is murdered it's a pretty shocking scene, especially the bad guy's hair and mustache.

Overall, Forced Vengeance is a fun Chuck Norris flick with plenty of fight scenes and action to keep action fans happy. Worth Watching...8 out of 10
