“It’s Time” from Invasion USA (1985)


SYNOPSIS: Retired CIA agent Matt Hunter (Chuck Norris) is forced back into the business when a villain from his past re-emerges. Soviet Mikhail Rostov (Richard Lynch), a terrorist whom Matt once caught, wants to exact revenge. After failing to find Matt at his Everglades home, Rostov and his army of Communist guerrillas begin carrying out terrorist acts all over southern Florida. Millions of innocent lives are at risk, and it’s up to Matt, the National Guard and the FBI to save them.

I love this movie, it’s totally preposterous but it has some inventive kills and Chuck Norris being… well, Chuck Norris but dammit he does it so well and this is one of the most satisfying bad guy deaths of all time.

It’s kind of cool how the villain Rostov is terrified of Matt Hunter and why wouldn’t he be? It’s Chuck Bloody Norris!

Not enough bad guys are blown to pieces by bazookas in today’s cinema and I think I might write a letter to my local MP about it.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
