Storyline

Colonel James Braddock has a Vietnamese wife who was supposed to leave Vietnam with him when they evacuate. But she loses her papers and wasn't allowed in the embassy. Braddock went looking for her and her friend took the bracelet Braddock gave his wife and was in an explosion. When Braddock finds the body with bracelet, he assumes it's his wife so he leaves Vietnam. 12 years later a Reverend in Vietnam who was visiting the States approaches Braddock telling him that his wife is alive and that he has a son. Braddock doesn't believe him at first but when a man at the CIA asks him to meet with him, Braddock realizes it's true. So he tries to get them out. So he contacts a friend in Thailand to get what he needs. As they are about to leave, the CIA tries to stop him but Braddock gets away, gets his equipment and heads to Vietnam. When he arrives he goes to the orphanage for Amerasian children, where the Reverend works. He takes him to them and is surprised to see them and his son resents... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

The scene in which Gen. Quoc oversees the torture of Col. Braddock runs just over eight uninterrupted minutes, thus making it one of the movies' longest bondage-and-torture scenes. See more »

Goofs

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.

Quotes

Gen. Quoc: I have tested many before, Braddock, and no one has lasted even an hour. Maybe you can be the first, eh?
Col. James Braddock: I'll do whatever you want. Just let the boy go.
Gen. Quoc: You will do what I want... anyways.

KA-POW!!!
10 May 2001 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This movie was an explosive mix of drama and action. Chuck is at his finest here, as he is in almost all his flicks, and he chews up some more anti-American slime in this seasoned classic. I just wish we could all be as heroic as Chuck is. Bravo!
