Invasion U.S.A. ★ 1985 (R)

A mercenary defends nothing less than the entire country against Russian terrorists landing in Florida and looking for condos. A record-setting amount of people killed. Count them—it's not like you'll miss anything important. Norris is a bit less animated than a wooden Indian, and the acting is more painful to endure than the violence. Glasnost saved the movie industry from additional paranoia movies of this kind. 108m/C VHS, DVD . Chuck Norris, Richard Lynch, Melissa Prophet, Alex Colon, Billy Drago; D: Joseph Zito; W: James Bruner; C: Joao Fernandes; M: Jay Chattaway.
