  • Playing with Character Type: Chuck Norris is one of the archetypal Hollywood Action Heroes who can memetically beat up people with a mere glare. This film, while seemingly another "Chuck smashes Evildoers" plot in fact deconstructs this hero myth and sees him playing a cynical, jaded police officer who regrets his past as a Cowboy Cop because his recklessness almost got him killed when he tried to take down a sinister Serial Killer twice his size. Anyone familiar with Norris' usual roles would be shocked to see his character struggling with PTSD.

How well does it match the trope?
