Popular Chuck Norris Movies

Chuck Norris movies are all about beating up the bad guys with weapons and martial arts. Though comedy isn't quite as evident in his work as say Jackie Chan's, you can bet your bottom dollar that you won't leave a Norris movie wanting for action. Here is a list of some of Norris's more popular movies for your reading pleasure.

The Delta Force

When a group of Palestinian terrorists ​overtakes a U.S. passenger plane, the Pentagon calls on Delta Force, a group of super soldiers, to save the day. Chuck Norris (Major Scott McCoy) and Lee Marvin (Colonel Nick Alexander) lead the way in a movie that has some far-fetched spots but never really falls short with its action sequences.

Delta Force was not the last of its kind, spawning sequels.

A rare Chuck Norris supernatural thriller. In Hellbound, Norris plays an undercover policeman (Shatter) who, along with his partner Jackson, find themselves in the middle of a murder investigation that takes them to the Holy Land. There they find themselves not fighting to stop a murderer as much as fighting to save the world from a powerful satanic creature.

Hero and the Terror

Norris plays L.A. homicide detective Danny O'Brien, a true to life hero, that put the city's most fearsome serial killer (Jack O'Halloran playing Simon Moon) behind bars. The problem? His fame for doing this is undeserved, as his capture of Moon was nothing more than a fluke. So when the man they call "The Terror," escapes from jail, O'Brien gets the chance to really take down one of the scariest criminals of all-time.
