An Eye for an Eye is an effective martial arts actioner vehicle for Chuck Norris.

Norris toplines as a San Francisco cop who quits the force and goes after revenge when his partner and partner’s girlfriend are killed by drug traffickers. Aided by his former police boss Capt Stevens (Richard Roundtree), Norris evens the accounts and takes care of the drug ring.

Making solid atmospheric use of SF locations, helmer Steve Carver segues from realistic violence and tension to comic strip hokum in the form of a huge oriental villain (Toru Tanaka) whose menacing antics tip the audience that the film is all in fun.

Format has Norris, in traditional Western genre fashion, helped and jeckled by an old pro ‘master’ James Chan (Mako), whose wise-cracks provide comic relief.
