      Marc Z Following the success of the classic martial arts crime film, The Octagon, Chuck Norris stars in An Eye for An Eye. This film has Norris as an ex-cop seeking to avenge the death of his partner and his partner's girlfriend. The film has a common anti-drug theme that runs through Chuck's 80's films and the involvement of the Far East underworld. The film is low budget but the action and fighting are good. Norris, by this point, had settled into being a film star and the discomfort sensed when watching older films of his dissipated. The film aged better than Norris's bight red Members Only Jacket. Better than some of the ones to follow. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/10/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a fairly average b-action flick, but it's made soo much more entertaining with Chuck's martial arts skill and the eclectic cast of character actors. I especially loved the comradery between him and Mako. It's a fun midnight movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/22 Full Review dave j The opening has undercover DEA agent Sean (Chuck Norris) seeking vengeance after him and his DEA partner Dave Pierce (Terry Kiser) were double crossed, and later news reporter Linda(Rosalind Chao). As a result after Sean was let go from the police force, he seeks the aide of his friend, Mako (James Chan) who they eventually stumble on an illegal drug trade. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review a.l.jude p There's no action but a good plot and some good answers by Norris ! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Respectable Chuck Norris action flick has Chuck as an undercover SFPD officer. He resigns his position early on in the film in order to go after a group of drug dealers who killed his partner. In many ways this film feels like a low rent karate version of "Dirty Harry," though that's not necessarily a bad thing. The film does feature a strong cast of B-movie starts including Christopher Lee, Richard Roundtree, Stuart Pankin, Mako, Matt Clark, and Professor Toru Tanaka (who for many years I thought was one-in-the-same as Harold Sakata of "Goldfinger" fame). Director Steve Carver keeps the film moving at a good pace, so it's never boring, and the action is solid. Norris and Carver would re-team a few years later for what I think is arguably Chuck's best film, "Lone Wolf McQuade," though a case can certainly be made for "Code of Silence." Overall this film isn't a classic, but in the pantheon of Chuck Norris films, this may actually be one of the better ones. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An Eye for an Eye 1981, the action is once again a massive step up from the last Norris movie with guns etc. Being added to the mix with plenty of the classic roundhouse kicks too. My only issue with the films was that Norris sports no facial hair what so ever!!! Even the tash has been sheared off!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Austin Trunick Under the Radar The surrounding cast makes An Eye For An Eye worth watching, and the frequent action scenes make it easy to look past Norris' cardboard-y dramatic acting. Rated: 6/10 Jul 8, 2015 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 12, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg Apollo Guide Aside from a few random smatterings of chop-socky daring-do, there's not one single thing about this movie worth sitting through. Rated: 52/100 Jan 15, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
