Storyline

A terrorist, Rostov, is planning to unleash a reign of terror on the U.S.. But before he does he decides to go after Matt Hunter, a former CIA agent who lives in Florida. Hunter once had Rostov's life in his hands, but on orders took him alive, and now Rostov is plagued by nightmares of Hunter killing him. So Rostov goes after him but misses, so Hunter, who has already been approached by his former employers to go after Rostov, after initially turning down the job, because he believed that they should have let him terminate Rostov when he had the chance, decides to go after him. But he is only one man and Rostov has hundreds of men ripping the country apart, so how will he stop it? Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Goofs

In the final showdown between Hunter and Rostov, Rostov walks down a hallway scanning very carefully to his left and right. When Hunter appears behind him and racks his grenade launcher, Rostov swings around to face him. He is 3 feet away from a window, at the end of a dead-end hallway. See more »

Quotes

John Eagle: Matt, you wanna come to dinner tonight? We got some live ones. Fried, steamed, barbequed, your choice.
Matt Hunter: [under his breath] God, I'm sick of frogs.

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by 10 secs by the BBFC to remove bullet impacts from a groin shooting and to edit a scene where a woman snorting cocaine through a straw is hit across the head by Rostov. For the video release a further 4 secs were made to edit a scene where a man's hand is impaled to a table with a knife. The cuts were fully restored in the 2004 DVD. See more »

Drug cartels+immigrant terrorists+revenge motif=an angry Chuck Norris
9 July 2000 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

The President's Man.Invasion USA.Walker:Texas Ranger.Kick Drugs Out Of America.......maybe Chuck Norris' longitivity as a screen action hero would have extended further had he not pledged this rather off-putting 'I Love America'isms in all his work.There's nothing wrong with his proudness of his heritage,but expecting people from around the globe to invest into what is clearly labeled as America's problem is perhap's going to be slightly controversial.

Invasion USA itself spouts some new and original ideas for the genre,but let's itself down by how incoherently it is told.Norris' screen presense remains tightly wound throughout ,but he occupies suprisingly lesser time than one would have expected.The story of the Irab terrorist invasion of America is engaging,and the central villain is rather hissable as a guy who dos'nt care who he hurts as long as he meets his narrow minded ideals.The action sequences,the end shootout especially,are also done very well.If only there was'nt such a patronising tone to it,and more of a consistent plotline to follow.Look out for an early ,low key appearance from Billy Drago in another Norris film.***
