Guilty Pleasure - Firewalker

Firewalker, with Chuck Norris and Lou Gossett, is one of my favorite films. It is so over the top, and it's great to see both Norris and Gossett Jr., known for serious/intense rolls, to have fun. Melody Thomas and John Rhys Davies are also in this.

The story? Norris and Gossett are adventurers always looking to make a buck. They are hired by Thomas to help find Aztec treasure, cross paths with an evil Aztec shaman, and manage to survive the whole escapade. The script is full of colorful characters, witty lines, and plenty of kick-boxing action.

It's pure action-adventure with no pretensions.
