Invasion U.S.A.

A brainless plot would be almost forgiveable were it not for the perverse depiction of innocents butchered in Invasion U.S.A. Star Chuck Norris hits his nadir with this vicious-minded commodity [from a screen story by Aaron Norris and James Bruner].

An international hoard of ruthless mercenaries, led by foreign agents with Russian-sounding names like Rostov (Richard Lynch) and Nikko (Alexander Zale), invade the southeast US, turn neighbor against neighbor in selective slaughters, and are ultimately throttled by Norris’ loner of a hero.

A picture like this needs a terrific crazie and Lynch, with solid classical training, is the only excuse to see the film. Melissa Prophet (associate producer on The Cotton Club) plays a callow, strident photojournalist in the year’s least credible supporting performance in an exploitation film.
