|Slaughter in San Francisco|
This movie had me laughing from the first few minutes. The acting, dubbing and dialogue are so comical that it's hard not to. Somehow a police dog has the ability to communicate telepathically because it barks without even opening its mouth. Impressive. And for some reason, even though this film is set in San Francisco, one of the cops has an Irish accent. At least I think that's supposed to be an Irish accent. Who knows. They even dubbed the voice of Chuck Norris. For shame.
Chuck Norris isn't even the star of this movie. He is absent through most of the film as Don Wong takes on the bad guys with fast as lightning kung-fu action until the climactic fight scene. Chuck plays the smug, cigar smoking, girl rapin', mustachioed bad guy boss and he plays him well.
The story is pretty basic. An incorruptible cop (Don Wong) is kicked off the force after he kills a guy with his lethal kung-fu moves. Chuck Slaughter (Chuck Norris) tries to recruit him for his gang because the Chinese are loyal and reliable henchmen but Wong refuses. After an evening at the pub, Wong's former partner is killed when he confronts a group of bank robbers. You have to see the drunk walking/fighting performances in this film. They are breathtaking. Anyway, Wong avenges his partner's death by rooting out corrupt cops and dismantling the gangs of local thugs until he comes face to mustachioed face with the man who is behind it all... Chuck Slaughter.
