Lone Wolf McQuade 1983


Chuck Norris’s back catalogue is an unsurprisingly patchy one, but youngsters hoping to get a glimpse of why Norris became an icon would be well advised to start with Lone Wolf McQuade. Steve Carver’s no-nonsense direction pits Texas Rangers McQuade (Norris) against a master criminal Rawley Wilkes (David Carradine) with sultry Barbara Carrera watching from the sidelines. Carver evokes the spirit of Sergio Leone in terms of gritty intensity, and while Lone Wolf McQuade is no great shakes in terms of innovative plotting or characterization, it’s as first and chunky as its muscular star.
