Cast and Crew:  Steve Carver (Director/Producer); Aaron Norris (Producer); Francesco De Masi (Score); Barbara Carrera, L. Q. Jones, Dana Kimmell, R. G. Armstrong, William Sanderson, Sharon Farrell

What It’s About: When international arms dealer Rawley Wilkes (David Carradine) hijacks an enormous shipment of U.S. military hardware, it’s up to maverick Texas Ranger J. J. “Lone Wolf” McQuade to stop them.  Can he adapt to working with green new partner Kayo (Robert Beltran) and Federal agent Jackson (Leon Isaac Kennedy)?

Why Watch it Today?:  The legendary Texas Rangers were formalized today in 1835Lone Wolf McQuade is easily Chuck Norris’s best starring role, a mad stew of Spaghetti Western, 80s “Maverick Cop” action movie, martial arts film, buddy picture, and even moments of James Bond inspired silliness.  Come for the top flight 80s action, stay for the insanity.  You will believe a man can drive a truck out of a shallow grave provided he can pour his favorite beer over himself first!

Where to Get It:  Netflix (rental only) or  Amazon and iTunes
