What's your secret,Chuck?
13 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

How does Chuck Norris manage to age quite so well?He's seems second only to Elton John in the category of people who just don't look their age,despite being at a time in their lives when they really should be showing it.The guy's 60 years old,and he looks the age of a man in his?......well,come to think of it,this guy just dos'nt look any age.

Sadly,this observation of the ravages of time is probably the most interesting thing about this rather sketchy TV movie farrago,a shambles of action,adventure and thriller elements.Squandering the kidnap of the first lady plot within the first 20 minutes,we then move onto a grindingly slow and plodding story of nuclear mass terrorists,and their supposed attempts to invade America.This coy about the leading man's age quite self referentialises itself as he goes about with his Japanese daughter training a hot headed army recruit Dirty Dozen style,so he can take over his place,and he won't have any worries about returning after retirement.The relationship they and some other charecters develop is quite engagingly told,thanks to Chuck's enveloped sense of warmlieness and sense of experience throughout,and the training scenes warrant some merit.But other than that,the other cast are leadenly cardboard,the plot is lathargic and lazy,the dialouge is pretty much non-existent,and the fighting/action sequences are just not very involving at all.

The success of Walker:Texas Ranger has been generated from overseas,and this is the only new work of Chuck's we get to see.Frankly,one would have hoped he could have given us something a little more original and exciting than this.**
