Plot Summary

The main character, J.J. McQuade, is a Texas Ranger who prefers to work alone. He lives in a dirty home in the middle of nowhere with a pet wolf. He has a daughter who came from a past marriage.


The movie opens with McQuade involved in an intense battle from which he emerges unscathed. Shaking off the dust, McQuade returns to the city to attend his fellow Ranger and close friend Dakota's retirement. After the party his commander attempts to curb his "lone wolf" attitude by insisting he work with local deputy Kayo Ramos. After McQuade's daughter is injured after she witnesses an illegal arms deal, McQuade more readily works with Kayo to find out who did this to his little girl. As the story progresses, they are joined by Federal Agent Jackson.


The trail leads them to Rawley Wilkes. Wilkes is hijacking U.S. arms shipments for his illicit weapons deals. No good movie is without a love story. The love interest, shared by both our villain and hero is Lola Richardson, the trophy girlfriend of Wilkes. (Of course she is killed in the final battle)


Wilkes sees McQuade as a threat and kidnaps his daughter. He also kills McQuade's old friend Dakota and his pet wolf. McQuades's search for his daughter and quest for revenge leads the three men over the Mexican border for an intense battle which concludes with a fight between the two Karate experts McQuade and Wilkes.


Symbolism: At the beginning of the movie, McQuade is a stubborn 'lone wolf', refusing to work with anyone. As the movie progresses, he begins to becomes more willing to depend on others. The scene where his pet wolf dies (is killed) is symbolic of the death of McQuade's 'lone wolf' nature.


An interesting sidenote about this movie is a fact about the final battle between McQuade and Wilkes. It was written into David Carradine's contract that he could not be defeated in hand to hand combat so at the end Norris' character kills him with a grenade.
