Hellbound

MPAA Rating: R
EW's GRADE
D+

Details Movie Rated: R; Genre: Action/Adventure; With: Calvin Levels and Chuck Norris

Part splatter flick, part buddy-cop comedy, part Holy Land travelogue, the feeble schlocker HellBound casts Chuck Norris as an ass-kicking cop who journeys to Israel with his jive-talking partner (Calvin Levels) to nail an undead medieval maniac (Christopher Neame) who ripped out the heart of a rabbi. With its rinky-dink effects and ridiculous dialogue (''Damn you, spawn of Satan!''), HellBound seems bound for a skewering on Mystery Science Theater 3000. D+
