So whatever happened to the corrupt judge?


The last thing we see is a big rig smashing through his bedroom wall. Does he die? Does he live? Since he was the principal bad guy in the film, we should have at least been treated to a scene where Chuck Norris makes him eat dirt and spit teeth. With no humiliation scene for the judge, the movie just has a flat ending.

Anyone else agree?

I just finished watching it now and I agree. The film was mildly enjoyable due to the fighting scenes but the ending just felt really unfinished. We don't see what happened to his judge, his brother is still injured at the barn and or what happens to Arlene and the kid. The film wasn't that long so I wonder why they had such a sudden ending.

Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!

Yeah, that was weird, because that cop wasn't the mainly bad guy, but got such a big beat-up scene..I first wonderes if the killing of the judge got cut out in TV, but it wasn't. I still like this movie somehow, I just love trashy 70s movies!

"Breaker! Breaker!" was one of those low budget independent movies produced by a studio no one ever heard of and probably never made a film since who sold what they called the finished film to American International who in turn bought it only because Chuck Norris was in it. As in many cases with an independent movie by independent producers, it is very possible that during the filming stage they ran through their budget and had to stop production until they could find more investors. It could be possible this film ran out of funds two or three times. If that was the case then most of the cast members would not actually be obligated to return to the set and complete the movie. That would especially be the case with George Murdock who was cast in several other movies and television shows that same year. That would mean that a possible reason why we never found out what happened to the judge was because Murdock was no longer available to film the scenes that showed what happened. He fought Boles at the end of the movie because none of the other actors were available. etc. The producers would have filmed what scenes they needed to give the movie an ending because all they really needed was the film to be 90 minutes long and have some sort of conclusion. They weren't making an academy award worthy film, they were making a Karate Trucker film for the grindhouse/drive-in movie circuit, so why would the even care?

im more concerned about the hottie that played his wife.

must have been tough to be wanting to make a career in hollywood,and then get a part where you have to be in bed and be kissed by an old fart like that.

i know it happens in every 2 and a half men episode but..ugh.

she probably pushed him in front of the truck when it crashed in,and ran off into the sunset with Chuck Norris' wrinkly cousin Buck Norris.

Yeah it would have been better if we saw the judge being humiliated or something. Still, this is one of my favorite Chuck movies, no lie.
