'Firewalker' (1986) Indy replacement: Max Donigan (Chuck Norris) The rip-off: Consider director J. Lee Thompson and producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus the Spielberg and Lucas of cheapo knockoffs. After their collaboration on "King Solomon's Mines," they re-teamed to take the Indy rip-off into the present day. And with the casting of Chuck Norris they did Harrison Ford one better -- they added lots of kicking. But aside from the modern trappings and feet of fury, this hunt for lost treasure features lots of of Indy-like touches. More bickering in the face of danger, angry natives and ancient Mayan temples with lots of booby traps. Plus, Sallah himself, John Rhys-Davies makes an appearance as well. Check out the trailer.
