Hot! B-MOVIE BINGO: LONE WOLF MCQUADE

LONE WOLF MCQUADE (1983)
Showing Tuesday 5/7/2019 at The Hollywood Theatre

World Karate Champion Chuck Norris (GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK) gives the finest performance of his career as the renegade Texas Ranger J.J. McQuade in this action-packed 1983 film. The blockbuster LONE WOLF MCQUADE is also the the first film of its kind to combine Western style with the excitement of the martial arts–and features the highly publicized bout between Chuck Norris and David Carradine (Kung Fu).

Norris’ McQuade is a hard-driving, beer-drinking lawman whose somewhat unorthodox methods have helped him remain a successful loner. So, when his supervisor tries to saddle him with a partner, J.J. gives his new sidekick the slip. But soon they both become embroiled in the crime spree begun by cruel gun-runner Rawley (Carradine). To add to the growing tension, Rowley’s beautiful woman (Barbara Carrera) soon becomes McQuade’s fondest admirer.

When the violence extends to J.J.’s daughter, he goes on a do-or-die mission of revenges, accompanied only by his partner and single FBI agent. Together, they hazard the treacherous hike to Rawley’s secret lair, where LONE WOLF MCQUADE finally confronts his enemy in a sizzling duel of hands and feet, a climactic battle between two of the most famous martial arts experts.
