Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Possibly owing to the declining returns on his movies in the late 1980s, Chuck Norris chose to play a softer hero here - a troubled cop still traumatised from his experience capturing a vicious serial killer (Jack O'Halloran) in his past, while dealing with the upcoming birth of his girlfriend's child. The stress increases when "the Terror", as he's known, escapes and resumes his savage spree. While Norris is to be applauded for trying something different - by playing a more likeable and believable hero - it comes at the expense of a boring and mostly uneventful story that has hardly any karate action, including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it climax.
