By far, the most remarkable man who has ever walked this Earth is none other than Chuck Norris. I heard the other day that archaeologists had found missing passages that belong to the Bible. The missing passages explained that when God said, “Let there be light”, Chuck Norris replied, “Say please”.
Did you like this one? Because I have so much more to share with you, just accept this as one of those articles.
Joking aside, I’ve always had a soft spot for the man, the myth and the legend. As an Air Force veteran, I dig just about any famous people who have taken the time to serve their nation.
Chuck is also a man with an iron constitution to stand up for what he believes in and openly espouses his conservative views on the regular. Who doesn’t respect that of a Hollywood icon in 2022?

You know, they say Chuck Norris was an all-weapons expert while he was in the Air Force, without having to pull the trigger. Not so different from all the Air Force people, I guess. (Just kidding, kidding.)
In honor of the prolific martial artist, I’ve listed some of my favorite Chuck Norris movies for you when you need to shut down the real world and watch a solid American scream in earnest; you know what.
#10: An Eye for an Eye – 1981

This classic crime film follows San Francisco Police Department narcotics cop Sean Kane, played by Chuck Norris. He sets out to avenge the death of his companion. However, when his partner is killed, Kane loses his mind and is forced to resign from the force, going it alone as he hunts down the killers.
Perhaps this movie is so notable for Norris’ zero facial hair status. My favorite scene is the one where Chuck Norris judo cuts a man off a cliff.

#9: The Hitman – 1991
I’m a colossal gangster movie fanatic, and while I probably wouldn’t have this movie on my top 10 gangster movie list, it does make it on my Chuck Norris list. Norris plays a cooly named Cliff Garrett.
Garrett is, of course, an undercover cop with deep roots in a criminal organization. Working for the DEA, Garrett begins his new secret life as a hitman named Danny Grogan.
His job, take out Seattle mob boss Marco Luganni, because Seattle is so well known for its deep Italian Cosa Nostra.

#8: Good Guys Wear Black – 1978
Yet another beardless cinematic adventure, Chuck Norris plays a former army commando with a contract on his head. After the war, his character, John T. Booker, now devotes his life to education as a teacher.
When his elite military team begins to die, he abandons his pursuit to educate the masses to hunt down the killers. You should watch this, if only for the weird digitized fight scenes in the opening credits.
Oh, and he kicks a guy through the windshield of a moving car, which is fantastic.

#7: The Octagon – 1980
In an excellent old-school ninja fight flick, Chuck Norris plays a martial artist hired to protect wealthy socialites. One, in particular, is Justine, played by Karen Carlson, who is inexplicably targeted by a ruthless ninja clan.
In a classic pram trick, a woman in one scene pretends to push her baby as she has a submachine gun cradled in the pram. The goal? Shoot down ninjas in a passing vehicle.

#6: Silent Rage – 1982
A bit of a change of pace for Chuck Norris fans; this film has a taste of horror and science fiction. Norris plays a sheriff who must try to stop a maniacal killer.
The twist is that evil scientists created the Killer, and the Inhuman Killer can heal itself. A fair match for Chuck? I should think so.
Oh, and did I mention the killer is mute, so you know…silent rage. Plus, Chuck Norris’ curvy assistant sidekick is always a good laugh.
Tonight at 7:30 p.m. (MST), we’re watching Chuck Norris in Silent Rage! 🍿🎥🎬 pic.twitter.com/b6IJSPlbi0

#5: Code of Silence – 1985
A classic good cop save the world story where Chuck Norris plays Eddie Cusack, a Chicago cop who plays by his own rules. His police department shuns him for exposing police corruption. As a result, Cusack is on his own, which is probably what he would prefer.
Cusack goes up against a notorious drug czar named Luis Comacho and mob boss Tony Luna. I mean, those names alone make this movie a classic.
But if that’s not enough, besides Chuck Norris’ killer kicks, he also wields a remote-controlled rocket launcher tank. Because not all police departments have one?
“Code of Silence” starring Chuck Norris was the No. 1 box office movie on that date in 1985. The movie knocked “Stick” off the top spot. #80s #80s movies #actionstar pic.twitter.com/DU6al6fGze

#4: Missing – All
If you’re unfamiliar with Chuck Norris’ iconic character, Colonel James Braddock, I’m not sure you’re American. However, Colonel Braddock is a decorated Vietnam veteran and former POW, so you know he’s tough as hell.
Everyone back home might feel like the war is over, but until Colonel Braddock declares it, the war continues. Thus, the character of Chuck Norris leads a one-man mission to bring back all the Americans left behind.
Who doesn’t love this plot?

#3: The Way of the Dragon – 1972
Honestly, it’s a Bruce Lee movie, but Chuck Norris is in it. And he fights Bruce Lee in a boss fight in none other than the Colosseum in Rome.
Chuck Norris plays the villain in this movie which is interesting. Additionally, there’s a bizarre preponderance of random cat hits during combat.
That’s not an understatement. Literal kitty cats that meow and hiss. Watching a slick Bruce Lee fight a hairy-chested Chuck Norris is why this movie makes the list.
Bruce Lee in The Way of the Dragon spent 45 hours on The Roman Coliseum Fight stage with Chuck Norris. Bruce Lee’s choreographed instructions took up almost a quarter of the script. pic.twitter.com/uvhFJlZ8bz

#2: Lone Wolf McQuade – 1983
Norris’ birth as a Texas Ranger, JJ McQuade prefers to fight alone. So you could say… he’s a lone wolf.
However, in this cinematic masterpiece, he is forced to team up with two others to defeat the villainous Rawley Wilkes, played by David Carradine. So you could say that the lone wolf rolls in a pack of wolves.
In fact, they say so in the preview; It’s hilarious.
Anyway, in the final boss fight, a burly Chuck Norris takes on an elegantly dressed David Carradine. Seriously, he’s wearing a cream-colored argyle v-neck sweater. Total combat worthy.
If that’s not enough for you, at one point McQuade is buried in his supercharged Bronco, but that doesn’t stop him. Instead, he fires up that compressor and weapon, rising from his dusty grave.

#1: Delta Force – Both
My favorite Chuck Norris movie of all time is Delta Force, much to my husband’s dismay. He would have put Silent Rage at number one, but he’s not writing this article, so he can handle it.
Alongside Lee Marvin, these two take on Lebanese terrorists who have hijacked a commercial flight full of Americans. Besides his usual punches and kicks, Chuck Norris spends quite a bit of time on a motorcycle with machine guns attached, which is amazing.
Other big names in this film include George Kennedy and Robert Forster. Chuck Norris does not negotiate with terrorists, nor does his character in this film.
