After I saw this movie. I accepted that this is an OK movie. Great action scene which can guarantee by Chuck Norris. However, drama in this movie is still too little. For my comment to actors, Aki Aleong's General Quoc was another heinous villain in my feeling. I believe many watcher want him to die quickly due to his cruel act (even Braddock or Van). Chuck Norris still show his character, "less talk, more fight" but his John Braddock's role should had more feeling with his son. Even Roland Harrah III did his good job as Van Tan Chang, but the plot made Van show his love to his dad in a very short time (probably last 10 minutes which ran so quickly). The plot should made the father and son talking more. Please remember, both of them didn't face each other for 12 years!!!
In my opinion, this movie has a good action but imperfect drama. This movie has similar plot to the first Missing in Action, except the people who receive help by Braddock was now the American orphan children. (also Braddock's unexpected family as well) Althrough, the movie use many cruel scenes to shake watcher's conscience and make sympathy to good guys in the movie. I accepted that General Quoc's death in this movie was the same as many Cannon Film's movie which the main villain usually dead in easily way, make me unsatisfied with it. (due to I hate the character that show ruthlessness to women or children) However, without bias or some own feeling, I can admit this movie.
