Directed by Joseph Zito Written by James Bruner and Chuck Norris Story by Aaron Norris and James Bruner Starring Chuck Norris, Richard Lynch, Billy Drago
Invasion USA is an Awesome Action film released from The Cannon films group. It Stars Chuck Norris as Matt Hunter, a retired C.I.A agent, that has to come back to hunt down an army of Cuban, and Russian Terrorists lead by Rostov - Richard Lynch.
The film starts off...
With a group of Cuban Refugees that are trying to make it safely to the coast of Florida. Unfortunately for all the Refugees, Rostov- Richard Lynch Sails up to the boat, disguised as the US coast guard. As soon as the Refugees think that they are being rescued, Rostov kills one point blank, and the rest of Rostov’s crew murder all the other refugees in order to find the hidden stash of Cocaine.
Rostov then meets up with Arms dealer Billy Drago, where he (Drago) gets double crossed and killed.
**May I note that at this part in the film, there is a great scene where a woman is doing rails of cocaine, only to have her Head smashed down on the table , jamming a steel straw up her nose, before being thrown out a window.**
From there, the movie picks up.
As Rostov goes After Matt Hunter , Norris- the only man that knows who he is and has the ability to stop him.
Once Rostov blows up Matt’s house, and kills his friend...
It’s totally FUCKING on!
The rest of the film shows Hunter going after Rostov and his men, culminating in a final trap in which pits Matt and Rostov into a final showdown.
I personally like Invasion USA, for me it is one of the finer entries in the Cannon films Library. The action in the film kept me going.
Richard Lynch does an exceptional job as playing Rostov, once again he steals many scenes. His facial expressions are priceless. Chuck Norris once again is in a role as the only man for the mission, where again he doesn’t disappoint, as this was filmed during the peak of his popularity.
Tom Savini’s FX are pretty dope, ESPECIALLY the COCAINE scene, made me cringe. Invasion USA is also a film that has a deep Cold War feel to it, as it’s from the 1980s and a lot of films back then had Cold War undertones.
I would definitely recommend this film for watching, as it is action filled , and you definitely won’t get bored.
