This is the third installment of the Missing in Action series, and it doesn't disappoint.
Chuck, uh, I mean Braddock goes to extricate his wife and his son that he thought were dead in Viet Nam.
Golan Globus Production was like the Asylum Pictures of today, making spoofs of other hit A List movies. This movie that started out as Rambo mimic grew into its own franchise that has personality all its own. Also Golan-Globus' quality started to go up around the mid '80s, and in its wake, this turned out to be a high quality action movie.
Chuck Norris never looked better as Col. Braddock, and his actions ranks up there with other A list movies. He could have done more wholesale destruction, but he did enough.
There's some inequity in this movie that the Vietnamese really didn't deserve to be killed the way they did, since asides from being A holes, they were only doing their job within their own country. But we all want to see justice served Chuck Norris style.
Clean to the very end, this is one gem of Chuck Norris film.
