Dove Review

“Forest Warrior” features the charismatic Chuck Norris as McKenna, a forest spirit who incorporates the powers of an eagle, wolf, and bear. When an unscrupulous businessman, Travis Thorne (Terry Kiser), attempts to cut down many of the trees in the forest of Tanglewood Mountain, a group of teens plot to stop him. They need help from the Forest Warrior and help they get! Not only can McKenna fight, he is a shape shifter and can take on whatever form he needs.

This action-packed movie also features a plot regarding McKenna’s wife who went missing long ago. Is there any hope he will ever see his beautiful Indian wife again?
