Undercover San Francisco narcotics cops Sean Kane (Chuck Norris) and Dave Pierce (Terry Kiser) head into a dark alley to meet up with an informant by the name of Tony Montoya (Mel Novak) who promises to break their big investigation wide open by providing the name of the oriental drug ringleader. Minutes later, Pierce is dead after having been shot, hit by a car, and burned. Kane gets into trouble with his boss, Captain Stevens (Richard Roundtree), for sending one of the killers flying out a third story window to his death in full public view right after the incident. Rather than face discipline, and told to keep his distance by his superiors, Kane now decides to quit the force, and sets out to exact vengeance. Kane is not the only one who is angry; Dave’s girlfriend, reporter Linda Chan (Rosalind Chao), is too, and she vows to bring the drug gang down herself by way of investigative reporting and public exposure. However, when Linda uncovers the secret that Kane and Pierce never found, she, too, is killed. Kane sets out for revenge, and so does Linda’s grieving father James Chan (Mako Iwamatsu). Together they get to the bottom of things and bring down the drug gang, and its unexpected leader…

“An Eye For An Eye” is one of Chuck Norris more well known movies I reckon, but has a weaker plot line then the more dynamic and not too bad “Good Guys Wear Black” in my point of view. It´s a simple vengeance b-movie with pretty ridiculous action sequences (and some truly poor acting at times….) and with bad guys that looks like they have been taken from a James Bond movie from the 70s. Christopher Lee´s participation is a pretty good hint at 007. I reckon the powerful Richard Roundtree is a bit wasted as he doesn´t get that much screen time and the same goes for the striking Rosalind Chao. Nah, this is pretty half assed if you ask me, a not one of Chuck Norris better ones. (2 out of 5)
