The Lone Wolf—J.J. McQuade (Chuck Norris) is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies. It is filled with drama, action, adventure and love.
McQuade is a Texas Ranger who works alone and uses his own uniquely practiced skills to bring criminals to justice. He can shoot straighter than most and he uses his martial arts as second nature---he does not need to think---he just reacts. He believes in justice and sometimes not by the rules of his badge---but he gets the jobs done his way.
Don’t get in his way or harm his family because he will come after anyone who does---and it will not be pleasant. He will not be forced into a fight---nor, will be back down from one.
One of his best scenes
After handling a gang of horse thieves and bringing the leader in---while saving a group of young Texas Rangers who were following the orders of their leader who lead them into the hands of the gang.
McQuade almost missed his best friend Dakota’s (L.Q. Jones) retirement speech but he makes it in time---dusty and nasty in all his glory. He was talking to Dakota when the Captain walked up and asked him to come to his office.
The reason the Captain wanted him there is to show him what was written in the newspaper about McQuade being a lone wolf---always working alone. The Captain introduce McQuade's new partner to him---Kayo (Robert Beltran) one of the young rangers he saved this morning.
McQuade said no way kid and then he leaves without another word. The Captain told Kayo to stay with him. So the fun begins of having a partner while not acknowledging him.
Kayo goes to McQuade’s home which is an isolated dump---but he likes it. His only pet is a lone wolf he befriended---probably because they were so much alike. This is when Kayo meets the wolf that is guarding McQuade’s house. Kayo runs inside the house as the screen door is unlocked and sees the mess inside the house.
McQuade meets Lola Richardson (Barbara Carrera) and they become involved. The only issue there is a local criminal Rawley Wilkes (David Carradine) is in love with her too. Lola's late husband was Rawley’s partner who he killed for money and her love---and of course she does not know this---yet.
This is a very good movie and I hope you will enjoy the videos and the review.
