It's 1975 the fall of Saigon. Colonel James Braddock (Chuck Norris) is one of the last at the embassy. His apartment gets hit and he mistakenly assumes his wife Lin is killed. Lin arrives after her papers get stolen. Chaos ensues. Braddock gets shot and Lin is left behind. It's the present day and Rev. Polanski arrives from Vietnam with news that his wife is alive with his son. Little John from the CIA denies the story at first which only confirms it for Braddock. He goes to Bangkok but Little John tries to stop him. He manages to escape and Mik flies him away. He parachutes into Vietnam and finds an orphanage filled with American-Asian children left behind after the war. He tries to escape with his family but they are captured by Gen. Quoc.
The problem is that Chuck Norris is always so sincere which doesn't fit the ridiculousness of the story. He never quite got the Rambo feel and his movies are never good enough to be realistic. This exists in the neverworld between good camp and good action. It fails as both. Norris is a horrible actor and the clunky dialog doesn't help any of the actors. The movie drags when it runs out of action. For too much of the movie, it really drags.
