In the scene at the embassy gate during the beginning of the movie, the Marine Corps Captain can be seen wearing subdued metal infantry branch insignia on his left collar (as he is wearing it). However, this branch insignia is used only by Army officers - not Marine Corps officers. A Marine Corps officer, if wearing rank insignia, would wear full color metallic metal insignia on either collar point, as the subdued blackened rank insignia was not introduced to the Marine Corps until the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform, in distinctive MARPAT pattern, was introduced in 2002.

In the wake of "Rambo 3" and a bunch of police action thrillers with Vietnam War veterans or references and homages to the war as well as the recent hits of Oliver Stone and Stanley Kubrick, "Braddock: Missing In Action 3" doesn't have a shot in accomplishing anything original since similar material has already been done way too many times before during the second half of the 1980's. However, Chuck Norris' starring role as the Vietnam War veteran who goes on another deadly mission to rescue more POW's prevents this film from being a complete downer but doesn't prevent it from becoming too routine.
