It was totally predictable, particularly the big kick-off between Chuck and Carradine at the end.

A hugely disappointing and dull action film from Chuck Norris.

i hate david carradine, he's a little cheesy, i mean dude always has a cigar in his mouth at all times, typical of the bad guy genre but overall the movie is very entertaining.

He is a divorced father, who takes care of his daughter, yet has enough time for a love affair with the stunning Barbara Carrera.

If you are under 16 years old, you will probably like this movie this is for the teeny boppers cliche after cliche after cliche

However, there's enough action and footwork in here to make this enjoyable from merely an action point of view.

Lone Wolf McQuade is an enjoyable movie with a lot of nice moments.

Norris is as wooden as ever here, his bland face not displaying any emotion for one second.

Rough, tough, and rousing, "Lone Wolf McQuade" makes for completely agreeable entertainment, delivering to us a finale that we can savour.

It's a waste of time.

He was supposed to be some kind of European martial arts champion, but if the guy moved any slower birds would build nests in his hair.

If you find this movie for rent and are bored with talented actors, exciting action and good story lines, give this one a try.

The story is effective, engaging, and if you ignore some plot holes, it's a fun ride.

Though in my book, those facts are part of what make the movie very entertaining.

"Big Bad Mama" director Steve Carver stages several exciting shoot outs and "Lone Wolf McQuade" never runs out of steam.

Leon Isaac Kennedy is a Fed, Jackson, who offers to help, not hinder, McQuade in his pursuit of the ones responsible for killing his daughter's boyfriend (and another friend; another cliché, the murder of the best friend is here)and soldiers during the artillery heist.

MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE): A heavy amount of suspenseful, dramatic and action music plays in the film.

Carrera is a boring love interest, and it's only up to the likes of L.

Overall, a bit dopey but enjoyable.

Cool Leon Issac Kennedy, strolls into the second half as an agent who sides with Norris, to take down this operation, where a fight to the death between two adversaries was grueling and intense, one of the best Norris fights I've ever seen.

Frishman), a wheelchair-bound dwarf who has apparently crossed paths with "McQuade" many times in the past to the point that the Ranger knows when he tried to bluff him with an empty gold-plated pistol.

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

The incomparable Chuck Norris stars in this highly enjoyable action outing as a tough as nails Texas Ranger who likes to keep a wolf as a pet and drink copious amounts of beer off and ON duty(!

To make matters more complicated, McQuade and Wilker's wife, Lola (played by the stunning Barbara Carrera) fall in love and begin an affair.

Lone Wolf McQuade is a poor 80's action film, having heard lots of positive things said about it I expected a half decent action film at least but it's a pretty dull, slow moving plot less advert for the Texan desert.

In fact it's a rather bland & forgettable film all round with far too many bland shoot-outs where the bad guy's can't shoot straight & just wait to be shot themselves & I am genuinely surprised that anyone would rate this.

The film's plot is predictable, and it rarely acknowledges the reasoning and logic behind the motives of certain characters.

Predictable story, acted by bad actors, among cheap special effects.

Carver directs with a real flair, the rural scenery is breathtaking to behold, the action scenes are extremely well executed, and the Chuck vs.

A fairly tiresome, predictable & routine feeling mid range budget 80's action film that I thought was pretty poor & only saved by one or two half decent action scenes & some unintentionally funny randomness.

The acting in here was average at best and the plot and story development was entirely predictable.

He is wooden, monotone, and I couldn't tell which emotions he was trying to display, unless it was "angry loner".

Lone Wolf McQuade is an enjoyable movie with a lot of nice moments.

What got the blood rising during these well-choreographed sequences was Francesco De Masi's rousing music score with its creative (though familiar sounding) smörgåsbord range to sell the ever-changing pitch.

Lone Wolf McQuade is an enjoyable movie with a lot of nice moments.

I watched "Lone Wolf McQuade" because I thought it was suppose to be a Western, but it is just a lousy action-flick with boring plot and worse direction than it could have.

With some exciting Martial Arts action and some serious gun-play sequences.

If you want an entertaining action movie, check this one out.

See David Carradine use his Tai Chi to bore you into submission!

First of all at nearly 110 minutes long this is very slow going & is quite frankly dull, the build-up is slow & the whole film feels padded with lots of little bits which are unnecessary.
